Summer is right around the corner. I thought I’d start experimenting with new popsicle recipes. As always, I prefer popsicle recipes that are simple and done with minimum effort. The recipe below uses fresh berries, but you could substitute frozen berries too. I suppose the name is a little misleading since it’s actually a lemonade berry popsicle. However, lemon berry sounded better, so I shortened it.
LEMON BERRY POPSICLE
1 medium lemon
1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup water
1. Make a simple sugar by dissolving the sugar in the water.
2. Juice lemon.
3. Combine lemon juice and simple sugar. Add water.
1. Slice strawberries.
2. Add berries to popsicle mold.
3. Add lemonade to popsicle mold. Fill up to just a few centimeters from the top.
4. Freeze for at least 3 hours, depending on your mold shape and size.
Below are some really cool and fun popsicle molds. You can find them in brick and mortar stores or online. All images are linked to my Amazon affiliate account.

Silicone popsicle molds
My kids would love anything I make with the Mastrad 4-Ice Pops. I’m thinking a creamsicle.
Stainless steel molds
I’ve been eyeing the Zoku Quick Pop Maker for years. Every time I’m in Williams Sonoma, I just look at them. I love the idea of getting popsicles quicker, and so would my kids, but the price is kind of a deterrent for me right now. Well, one can dream.
