Hot and humid summer days call for cold and refreshing snacks. Frozen treats to be exact. And what's even better is when those treats are homemade, like these deliciously fruity strawberry lime pops. Made with just a few simple ingredients, you can't go wrong. No added preservatives, artificial flavors, corn syrups, etc. Just real fruit and a little bit of sugar. That's it. 

These pops are so simple to make - whip up a quick batch of simple syrup, then pop the cooled mixture into a blender with some sliced, fresh strawberries and the juice of a couple fresh limes. Blend it well, then add it to your popsicle mold. Freeze for a few hours and voila! Real strawberry lime pops made with fresh summer fruits. What's better than that?

Ingredients:
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
1 lb. strawberries, washed, hulled, and halved
2 limes

Add the sugar and water to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is clear. Set aside to cool.

Once the simple syrup is cool, add it to a blender along with the strawberries. Juices the two limes directly into the blender as well. Blend on high until completely pureed. 

Divide the mixture evenly into 10 popsicle molds. Freeze until firm, about 5 hours. Remove the popsicles from the molds and place in a freezer safe bag until ready to eat.

Bon Appetit!
