Strawberry Mojito Ice Pops

I’m sharing another refreshing way to keep cool and snack on something delicious! These Strawberry Mojito Pops are very easy, tasty and will keep you cool after hot summer activities. They are made with fresh strawberries, fresh mint, lime, and they are non-alcoholic (unless you want them to be)!

Popsicles have become as necessary as milk in my house. Little man runs to the freezer at least twice a day asking for pops. I really don’t mind because I make them myself so I know what is in them and I tend to load them with fruit. I’ve even started experimenting with adding some vegetables for more vitamins. Some vegetables work very well in popsicles because they are sweet  or they work well with sweet fruit. Think carrots, avocado, cucumber, and even spinach.

With all this popsicle making, I take lots of pictures and then decide which ones are worth sharing. My little guy is always ready and happy to help me with all of this, especially tasting of the treats.

Many of my my food blogger friends will absolutely know what I’m talking about when I say that blogger’s kids know the drill when it comes to eating at our house. New food is not to be touched until it is photographed! When my little man sees me take the plate to the bedroom set-up and grab the camera, he is ready. He is ready to help and to grab and eat the second I say that I’m done! The second I say that I’m done though, it’s go time!

 It was so cute that he wanted to help me set up my shot of these Strawberry Mojito Pops  but we had a different vision. He didn’t want mint of top of pops and I thought it would be nice. So he cleared off all the mint anyway, (notice his left hand) grabbed the closest popsicle and ran for it! How can you be mad at such cuteness?!

And that is why below picture only has three popsicles left instead of four!

Strawberry Mojito Ice Pops
 
Serves: Makes 6-8 popsicles, depending on size of your molds
Ingredients
  • 1 lb strawberries
  • ½ cup mint leaves, packed
  • Zest from 1 medium lime
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ½ cup hot water
  • If you want to add alcohol, add ½ cup rum
Instructions
  1. Combine strawberries, mint and lime zest in your blender and pulse until all smooth.
  2. Mix sugar and hot water until sugar is melted. Add it to the strawberry mixture and mix well. (Taste to see it that's enough sweetness for you)
  3. Divide mixture among popsicle molds.
  4. *If your mold doesn't have tops, use wooden popsicle sticks: cover the mold tightly with saran wrap and quickly poke wooden sticks through the center of each mold. Saran wrap will keep the sticks standing up while the popsicles freeze. Or, freeze for 30 minutes and then add popsicles sticks.
  5. Popsicles will need at least 4 hours to fully freeze.
