My sister and I just found our popsicle mold the other day, and couldn’t wait to make these.
Homemade popsicles are an easy and quick treat to enjoy on these hot summer days. With all of the fresh berries available right now, my sister and I decided to whip up some delicious and fresh strawberry and blueberry popsicles!
You can make them with virtually any type of fruit that you have on hand. In addition, these are only approximately 20 calories each, so you can feel good about your healthy and cool snack! To make these taste extra fresh, you could add some fresh mint leaves as well.
Strawberry Blueberry Homemade Popsicles
Time: Prep 10 minutes, ~2-3 Hours (to freeze)
2 cups fresh strawberries, halved
2 tbsp agave nectar
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/3 cup water
1 cup blueberries
Blend strawberries, agave, lime juice and water for about a minute on the highest setting (if you are using mint, add it here and blend). Fill each popsicle mold about half way with fresh blueberries. Pour the strawberry mixture on top and tap the molds firmly on a counter or another hard surface to release any bubbles. Top with additional strawberry mixture after tapping, if needed. Insert a popsicle stick into each mold (we used bamboo skewers because we didn’t have popsicle sticks- these will work, too). Freeze until solid, at least 2-3 hours (depending on the size of your popsicle molds). To extract the popsicles, run the mold (plastic part only) under warm water until the popsicles come out easily. Enjoy!
What is your favorite cool summer treat?
