Strawberry Ice Pops + A Giveaway!

What’s a good and healthy refreshing treat to have on a really hot summer’s day?  An ice pop, of course! And to celebrate, I’m giving away this cook book with a ton of different ice pop recipes in it called Pops! Ice Treats for Everyone. There’s a lot of cool looking flavors in it like pumpkin pie ice pops and I noticed there’s even one that has vegetables in it. The book even shows you how to make the ice pops that  look like there’s different herbs and fruits floating around inside of them using clear liquids.

I’ve made two flavors since I’ve got that ice pop mold of mine and I figured out a good way to get them out of the molds. You have to submerge them in some cold water or else if you submerge them in hot water the ice pops start to melt. That’s a good thing to remember with any ice pop mold. Not just the one that I have.

These strawberry ice pops are probably the best ones I’ve ever made yet and there’s so many more flavors to make. I’ll be posting some more through out the contest! Enjoy.

Strawberry Ice Pops

4 cups of fresh strawberries, cut

3/4 cup of sugar

1 cup of water

Juice of one lime

Directions:

In a small sauce pan boil the sugar and water together until you no longer can see any of the sugar. Meanwhile while the sugar and water mixture is boiling, cut the strawberries. Puree the strawberries in a blender and pour the sugar syrup into the mix. Pour strawberry mixture into ice pop molds and freeze.

    I think a refreshing pink lemonade sounds good, or margarita flavor. Mojito sounds good in a ice pop too. Wondering if adding alcohol is something you can do with ice pops?

    I love your blog! I just happened upon your bubble Enchiladas – they sound great. The watermelon pops sound good!
