Strawberry Mint Popsicles

Picture this…
It’s late evening and the summer heat has set in. You hear that familiar tinkling tune … the ice cream man is headed your way. And suddenly you’re giddy like a five year old, but instead of running to the driveway with three dollars in your hand, that whimsical music just reminded you that you made popsicles yesterday… and they are ready to enjoy now!

That could be you tomorrow!
And the best part is, you’re gonna love these popsicles much more than any popsicle you could get from the ice cream man! These strawberry mint popsicles are everything you could want from a popsicle: ice cold, refreshing (thank you mint!), and oh-so-good for you because, guess what? They’re made from a green smoothie!

    These are amazing! We made them a couple of times over the summer with fresh local strawberries and mint from the garden! My 4 year old loves them and I never had to stop him from having a ‘special’ treat!

    Hi! This sounds great, I can’t wait to try it! Just one quick question: is it ok to use thawed frozen strawberries even if we’re going to re-freeze them for the popsicle? I thought we weren’t supposed to re-freeze food without cooking it first but I might have gotten that completely wrong! Thanks!

      Hi Morgane,

      We don’t see a problem with that!

      Cheers 🙂

      Morgane, I realize it’s been along time since this post. I just wanted to say you heard correctly about re-freezing food without cooking it first, but that’s only for meats. Everything else is safe. Thanks.

    Sounds great, we have some chocolate mint in the garden, and tons of strawberry plants. This might become our new favourite dessert.

    I’m freezing mine right now. I didn’t strictly measure everything but it tasted pretty good before going into the freezer! I think next time though I might experiment with muddling the mint in warm water before adding it to get a little bit of extra mint kick! 🙂

      Hi Sterling,

      Yum! That sounds like a great idea! 🙂

  8. Renee 6.11.2015 at 10:23 am #

    We are going to make this today. But without the mint because we just planted the mint this morning. 😉
