Strawberry Lime Popsicles

Servings 12 popsicles


  • 2 pounds strawberries <approx. 6 cups>
  • 1 cup cherries, any fresh variety <pits removed>
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Popsicle Stuff

  • popsicle mold(s) & sticks


  • Wash and remove stems and pits from strawberries and cherries.
  • Add fruit to a medium sauce pan. Add water.
  • Cover saucepan and bring to a boil over low to medium high heat.
  • Vent the lid a little when it starts boiling, reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes - stirring frequently. <The fruit should break down and the liquid around the fruit should thicken slightly.>
  • Remove from heat. Add lime juice, honey and salt.
  • Pour fruit mixture into a blender. Blend well. <Vent the lid to let heat escape.>
  • Pour mixture into popsicle mold. Freeze overnight or until frozen.


Other Thoughts
  • Use any fruit you want. You name the fruit. We've made popsicles out of it! 
  • Save all your nearly dead and dying fruit and turn it into popsicles. Add a banana for extra sweetness. Or, if your fruit is super fruit - you likely don't need to add the honey. 
  • Toss in a couple handfuls of leafy greens if you dare. <If you toss some blueberries in too, the kids won't even be able to see the greens that you add.>
Athletes: These are perfect for cooling down post summer run. Fluid, salt, carbs, and coldness. Let the recovery begin! 
Healthy Eating: Get a serving of fruits in your popsicle. What could be better than that?!
Kids: My kids have been obsessed with these since they were toddlers. Mix up the fruit choices. Add a banana for more sweetness. The possibilities are endless!
