Zingy, refreshing, vibrant, healthy, easy to make and oh so delicious! Need we say more? With just three ingredients and very little added sugar, these Strawberry Lime Popsicles are the coolest little treats for a hot day.
2 punnets strawberries, hulled and quartered
(about 1 and a half cups when cut up)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 cups lime soda
Clean fresh strawberries, remove stem and place in fridge until cool.
Place strawberries and sugar in a blender and blend. Make as smooth or as chunky as per your preference.
Pour strawberry puree evenly between ice block moulds. Top with lime soda. Leave about half an inch of space at the top to make room for expansion in the freezer. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until solid.
After removing from popsicle moulds, extra popsicles can be wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in a freezer bag in the freezer.
