The boys and I went Strawberry picking the other day at Mt. Olympus Farm in Caroline County. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun. We picked 12lbs of strawberries. I made lots of popsicles, froze a bunch of berries and tried my hand again at making strawberry jam. We got syrup again. It's ok now we have toppings for pancakes, oatmeal, ice cream and to use in smoothies. So I just wanted to share this quick and easy recipe. My dear friend Carol McDaid shared this recipe with me. She had us over for an Easter egg hunt last week and pulled these pops out of the freezer, they are amazing and oh so good for you too!
2-4 cups of fresh (or frozen) Strawberries (cut into halves or quarters)
1/2 cup cane sugar
2 Tablespoons (a little more if you use 4 cups of strawberries) of Lemon juice or OJ (i used OJ)
put them in the blender or food processor and then puree them for about 30-60 seconds.
pour into popsicle containers OR (like Carol did which is brilliant) pour into little paper dixie cups and place a large popsicle stick in the middle.
place in the freezer and within a few hours you have some yummy SLAMMIN' STRAWBERRY POPS!
Hugs and love.
