Our family absolutely loves strawberries! We actually have a place in our garden where they are growing, and they are thriving this year. My kids and I will go outside to tend to the garden and they will eat the strawberries right off the stems. They love seeing something they’ve worked on grow. It’s actually my favorite trick for them being introduced to new fruit and vegetables.

This recipe is one of our favorite summer treats. The strawberry and lemon pair so well to give a sweet and tangy flavor that makes a hot day so much more manageable. It’s not easy to find ice cream and popsicles that have whole, natural and limited ingredients but these call for four super simple ingredients and one of those is water! They are incredibly simple and also refreshing.

Any popsicle molds will do but you can find the ones I use here. You could also do these in ice cube trays or small paper cups. Freeze them for 2 hours before inserting the popsicle sticks so they stand upright.
