Strawberry popsicles

To have a smoothie, basically you can start with any juicy fruit. Clean the fruits and put them in the blender. Then, you need to add some liquid for the blender to start pureeing the fruits. If you want it natural, stop here. If you like it more sweet, add some natural sweetener like honey, maple syrup or even dried fruits. If you pour this smoothie into icecream / popsicle molds and freeze them for at least 4 hours, then you get to an excellent dessert that your kids will love.

Following these principles, as I had plenty of strawberries that we were incapable to eat fresh, I had to conserve them somehow. The best was to do a smoothie, drink a part and freeze the rest. I went for the option of spicing it a bit with some ginger and I added the juice of one orange to give the blender a little start. To sweet it more, I have added a hand of raisins. If you do not want this, skip this step.Blend everything together and drink it... or make popsicles with.

  • 700g strawberries
  • 2cm ginger (peeled)
  • the juice of one orange
  • one hand of raisins

  1. Blend first the strawberries with the orange juice.
  2. Add the ginger and raisins and continue to blend until fully pureed.
  3. Pour this smoothie into popsicle molds.
  4. Freeze them for at least 4 hours.

While I was trying hard to make a nice photo of the strawberry popsicles, suddenly a hand appeared in my frame and started stealing my decoration :) .... oh... wait daughter's hand ... he he ... strawberries look more appealing near their popsicles, right ?
