These Strawberry Mint Limeade Popsicles are a refreshing summer treat, perfect for enjoying on the porch or in the backyard with friends.
Summer strawberries are exploding with flavor right now, so there is no better time to grab them by the pint and enjoy them fresh - as a snack or as part of a picnic. Though I do go through plenty by the handful, leaving red stains behind on my fingertips, I always find myself over eager at the grocery store's berry sales and end up with a few extra pints hanging around - perfect for a fun creation.
I recently made these popsicles as a fun way to enjoy a pint of strawberries that was on its last leg. They were extra juicy and ripe, and paired with a handful of fresh mint leaves and some lime juice, the sweet and sour complimented each other nicely in a frozen popsicle reminiscent of limeade.
If you're like me, and need a use for that extra pint of strawberries, or just love having a sweet cold treat on hand in the freezer, blend up these simple pops. No need to remove the strawberry greens as they are edible and get blended straight into the mixture!

Strawberry Mint Limeade Popsicles
- 2 cups organic strawberries, washed well (about 1/2 pound)
- 3 tablespoons lime juice (from 1 and 1/2 limes)
- Small handful of fresh mint leaves (about 1/8 cup, packed)
- 1 tablespoon honey, more to taste
- 1 cup water
In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend until smooth.
Adjust flavor to taste. Depending on the sweetness of the strawberries, you may need additional honey.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, leaving a half inch of space at the top for them to expand, and freeze for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, add in the wooden sticks and cover gently in the freezer.
Freeze the popsicles for 6-8 hours before enjoying. Run the mold under warm water to get the popsicles to release easily.
