Just a few weeks ago we made our summer lists. It’s a tradition we started a few years ago to help us make the most of our summer days. The boys and I each make a list of 10 things we’d like to do before heading back to school in August. This year’s lists include going to a major league baseball game, having a lemonade stand and picking strawberries at a local farm.

Last year, when we made our lists, ‘make our own popsicles’ was one of the things we wanted to try. We got some great molds and made a few of our own with popsicle sticks and paper cups. Little did we know how much we would LOVE making them and that it would quickly become a favorite summer treat. This year we’ve gotten a bit more serious about our popsicle making and I ordered some fun ring pop molds as well as those used below.

We’ve tried many different recipes, but always come back to those with strawberry or lemon flavors. There is just something about the sweet, tart taste that is so refreshing on hot summer days. This recipe is a great combination of both.

    • You could use a paper cup with a popsicle stick. Let them freeze about halfway and then put the stick in.

  • So this really does call for 1/2 cup of Honey???? It sonds like a lot and I didn’t want to add that much just incase it was a miss print, but I did anyway. My baby didn’t even try it and when I did, it taste like too much honey, but I dont really like honey. So for those who don’t like honey I would suggest using less. Other than that it’s good.

    Reply
    • Yes it does. Obviously, you can add to taste. But if you don’t like honey I would probably skip this recipe.
