Strawberry Basil homemade Popsicles! Summer treat!

Found this recipe for Strawberry Basil popsicles from fellow bride, cookingbride.wordpress.com!


Strawberry-Basil Pops



  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, tops removed

  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 12 popsicle molds or paper cups (3 ounces each) and popsicle sticks


In a medium saucepan, combine water and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and then cook over medium high heat until sugar is dissolved, forming a simple syrup. Remove from heat and allow to cool.


In the meantime, combine the combine the strawberries and basil in a blender or food process. Pulse until mixture forms a smooth puree and ingredients are combined. This should give you about two cups of strawberry-basil puree.


Pour strawberry-basil puree into simple syrup. Stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicle molds. For best results, allow to freeze for at least eight hours.


Makes approximately 12-16 pops, depending on mold size.
