Forget kale. Forget fresh flowers. Forget whole grain bread. Last weekend at the farmer’s market, I saw all these kids walking around with delicious-looking popsicles and I knew that I needed one immediately. I searched for a while and finally spotted the popsicle cart conveniently hidden behind a long line of children. Typical. I waited my turn patiently and finally bought what was actually the most delicious thing in the entire world: a strawberry honey pop.
The girls selling them (from 3 Porch Farm) saw my enthusiasm and said “they’re so good, right?! And they’re made with just strawberries and honey.”
Naturally, I decided that I needed to be able to make these every day of my life, so I bought some strawberries and got to work. Luckily, I had impulse-bought some nifty popsicle trays a while ago at Target so all I needed to do was find an acceptable recipe. After some very scientific internet research and a survey of my honey arsenal, here’s what I came up with:
- 3 cups of hulled strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 cup of honey (I used key lime honey my mom brought me from Florida mmm)
- 3 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice
Put it all in a blender, fill the tray, and wait roughly 4 hours! It makes about 5-6 popsicles depending on your tray!
These were seriously so easy and so delicious— the hardest part was waiting for them to freeze. And, since they’re made of all good stuff, I justified eating them for breakfast, obviously. I ate it so quickly, I didn’t even get to use the handy straw feature on the popsicle stick.
Also, wear your retainers, kids. My bite pattern is looking crazy…
