A couple weeks ago I posted my favorite recipes to make with strawberries (you can it find here) and in that post I mention using my strawberry & banana smoothie mixture to fill these Zipzicle (aff link) pouches. This got me thinking about what other mixture I could use to fill them. Since strawberries are still on sell, and still a huge pregnancy craving, I wanted to incorporate them again and thought why not make a strawberry lemonade mixture.

I already had everything on hand, so yesterday Nugget and I got in the kitchen and gave a try at making some Strawberry Lemonade Homemade Ice Pops. They were super quick to whip up, and made enough for a small trial batch. If you love this recipe, and I am sure you will, simply double to make a larger batch. You could also take this a step further by making fresh lemonade, but I had the powdered mix on hand and was looking for something easy and fun to do with Nugget in the kitchen.
Homemade Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pops
4oz Strawberries, Puréed
1 cup of water
1 scoop Powdered Lemonade – any brand will do.
- Place strawberries in blender to purée.
- Measure out 1 cup of water and add in 1 scoop of lemonade powder. Mix well.
- Add purée to Lemonade and mix well.
- Fill each Zipzicles (aff link) pouch with mixture and seal. I find it easiest to use a funnel for this.
- Freeze and enjoy!
This recipe makes enough to fill 4 pouches. You will probably have a little extra, so add a little ice and enjoy as a drink.
I know we will be making these a lot as the hot summer days of the south soon approach, and I my hope is you will give them a try as well.
