Strawberry Popsicle Recipe by Darlene Schacht
Note: This is one of my older recipes, so my kids look pretty young here, incase you are wondering why.
While Maddy and I were out shopping we came across a box of frozen popsicle molds. Since it’s been far too long since I’ve made them, I decided to buy a package and try them. Looking at the variety of kits they had, I couldn’t help but remember the days when my sister and I used to make popsicles with nothing but a plastic cup and a metal spoon. We’d freeze Kool-Aid or orange juice (whatever we had), but as little kids we didn’t venture to try anything else.
Today I ventured. Using our fruit smoothie recipe, the kids and I made a batch of healthy “Banana-Strawberry Popsicles.” They are so easy to make, and so delicious I’ll share the recipe with you:
- Red Grapes
- 1/2 cup of apple juice, skim milk, or yogurt
Unfortunately I don’t measure, I just toss in whatever I like. Sometimes I’ll even add seedless watermelon–yum!
Combine fruit in a blender.
Blend until smooth and then pour into pop molds. Note: Don’t fill them to the top as the frozen mixture will expand.
Place pops into the freezer until solid, and reward your workers with a cold drink!
