One more Summer Cool Popsicles from my Lazy Kitchen…Homemade Strawberry Popsicles
I had plenty strawberries in my pantry today and I wanted to try on something which will be for easing summer high temperatures. I had hands-on these recipes: Strawberry Milkshake, Strawberry Lemonade
, Strawberry Smoothies
and now Strawberry Popsicles
I got this idea when my son goes to any Amul shop, he wants to buy mango dolly, raspberry and many more flavor from Amul parlor. Sometimes I buy for him and sometimes I scold him that you always ask for store food which is not good. And then he asked, why don’t you make it at home.
My biggest encouragement -My son, who wants me to try my lazy cooking skills on different food. So, Here I am..Strawberry Popsicle, truly speaking, it is now my favorite also. Very yummy, delicious and meet summer’s demand for a cold and refreshing treat.
Strawberries grow in bushes and are delicious seasonal fruits that also boost your health. Strawberries are often associated with a European fruit; however, they are popular throughout the world.
Mahabaleshwar, in India, is placed very famous for Strawberry farming.

I could eat many more times than my son. Thank god, my popsicle stand has only 4 boxes. I have mixed sugar and water. If your popsicle stand is big enough to hold 9 or 12 popsicles, then take the measurement as per that.
Basically, you need to just mix strawberries, sugar with water. You can skip the sugar if strawberries are sweet and want to have the natural sweetness. If using frozen strawberries then maybe need to add little sugar, as frozen things lose their sweetness. In the same way, we can make Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle-strawberry mixed with yogurt and sugar. As well Strawberry lemonade Popsicles, too.
10-12 fresh Strawberries
4 tbsp powdered sugar
1 cup water
1.Mix all ingredients into blender and blend till all mix thoroughly. Let some strawberry chunks present in mixture.
2.Fill the popsicle stand and freeze them for 5-6 hours.
