Homemade popsicles are a great way to cool down on a hot summer day. Unfortunately, many sweet summer treats are loaded with high fructose corn syrup and other less-than-ideal ingredients. Today’s recipe for strawberry lemon popsicles eliminates all those extras.

More suggestions:

  • Use frozen strawberries in this recipe to speed up the freezing time. Or just enjoy it as a homemade slushie.
  • Make a chunky version of this strawberry lemonade popsicle recipe. Add diced strawberries or other fresh fruit to your molds before adding the liquid.
  • Create separate layers of color in the popsicles. Mix the fresh lemon juice, cold water, and agave nectar. Blend the fruit into a strawberry puree. As you fill your molds, alternate between the puree and a lemonade layer.
  • Freeze the strawberry lemonade mixture in ice cube trays. Add the ice cubes to coconut water or soda water for a refreshingly delicious drink.
  • Add a bit of your favorite booze for an adults-only frozen treat.
  • You can use agave nectar, honey, maple syrup, sugar, simple syrup, or a sugar substitute to sweeten your popsicles.

Tips and Tricks:

  • I love using silicone popsicle molds for homemade popsicles. These** are some of my favorites.
  • Small paper cups, like Dixie cups, are a great alternative to popsicle molds, especially if you are making popsicles for a crowd. The paper can simply be peeled off when it is time to enjoy the frozen treat. Plastic cups work well too, though they take a little more work to unmold.
  • If you are using DIY molds, insert a wooden popsicle stick into the top of each mold once your popsicle mixture has partially set, to help keep the stick upright. Alternatively, you can cover the molds with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, make small holes in each cover, and insert the popsicle sticks right away.

  • Make your own simple syrup for sweetening popsicles and summer drinks. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, mix equal parts water and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Once the syrup is cool, it can be stored in an airtight container, in the fridge.
  • When making boozy popsicles, the alcohol content can hinder the freezing process. Be sure you have a high enough ratio of your favorite fruits and juice in your mixture to ensure the popsicles freeze.
  • Make unmolding your popsicles easy by letting them sit at room temperature for a few minutes first. You can also run warm water over the outside of the mold for a few seconds to loosen the popsicles.
