The Best Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

We’re entering the steamy hot summer months in New England and there’s a particular summer activity that brings me right back to my childhood. My mom used to bring us to the grocery store and let us pick out any flavor of juice that we wanted, and when we got home, we’d pour the juice into molds and eagerly wait for them to freeze into popsicles.

My sister and I would wear ourselves out playing in the yard, coming back only to snag a popsicle that would make the corners of our mouths as sticky as the humid air.

The weather today feels just like one of those summer days, and that’s why I’m breaking out my popsicle mold and making a batch of homemade popsicles made from strawberries that Eric and I picked this weekend and fresh lemon juice. Mixed with oat milk that’s naturally sweet (no sugar added), there’s no reason to add sugar! Sweet strawberries, tart lemon, and sweet, creamy oat milk make the perfect base for a summer popsicle that’s just as much for the kids as they are for adults!

Save a little bit of blended juice to drink before freezing. It’s incredible.

Makes: 6 popsicles

Prep time: 3 hours and 15 minutes (includes 3 hours of freezer time)

Cook time: 0 minutes

Total time: 3 hours and 15 minutes

The Ingredients

2 cups strawberries, hulled & sliced

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 or 1 ½ lemons)

¾ cup oat milk (I recommend Pacific Food brand that’s high in natural sugar.)*

*Although there’s typically no sugar added in oat milk, depending on the brand you buy, there will be varying amounts of natural sugar. During the production process, oat starches breaks down into natural sugar. Different processes create different amounts of natural sugar! If use use a brand that’s low in natural sugar, you may need to add in a touch of agave nectar or honey.

 

 

The Steps

See note above about varying levels of natural sugar in different oat milks!

Add sliced strawberries, lemon juice and oat milk to a blender. Blend until smooth or almost smooth depending on preference. Add a dash more oat milk, honey, or agave nectar if you prefer a slightly sweeter popsicle.

Pour mixture into popsicle mold. Try the juice before it’s frozen! It’s delicious!

Freeze for at least 3 hours until solid. Stores well in the freezer for 2-3 months (if they’re not eaten before then!).
