Apple Strawberry Popsicles taste as good as they look. There are only three ingredients and are so very fast to get done. Cold, fruity, refreshing.
Having more popsicles packed in my freezer is a good thing. It must be psychological but when I have something sweetish, cool and refreshing in the freezer, that I can get at any time, my life is less stressful.
Maybe it really is! If I get a craving, there is that strawberry popsicle, right there.
I want summer to go on forever and thank goodness it’s on its way.

It is exciting to me that fall is coming but I am also very good at living in the moment. I mean, who wants to miss something!
There is still a summer holiday to celebrate so hold on to your hats, cool off and have a popsicle.

Apple Strawberry Popsicles
- 2 cups frozen or fresh strawberries
- 1 1/2 cups organic unsweetened apple juice
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- Here ya go. Simple and wonderful popsicles!
- Put all of the ingredients in your blender. I use a Ninja Master Blender but there are many great blenders that will do the job.
- Process until everything is mixed and blended well.
- Pour into you popsicle molds and freeze at least 6 hours.
- You will have a couple of popsicles worth of extra filling. Put it in the fridge and save to make more popsicles after you remove the first set. Or ... drink it as a smoothie. Delicious!
- Here is that clickable link for the popsicle mold that I used = Classic Pop Molds. I have used them many times and they work really well.
- You can see in the Amazon photo that they come with a popsicle stick insert and that is great but I am a traditionalist, in many ways, so I use wooden sticks.
- I actually stick a little piece of scotch tape on the lid and up along the side of the stick to hold up the handle at the length that I want.
- To get the popsicles out of the mold I ran hot water on the sides first. They slide right out really easily.
- Freeze for about 6 hours.
- In the photo above the ingredients you can see the plastic holders on the three popsicles at the top.
- After you take the frozen popsicles out of the molds - put them in a freezer bag.
- Replace in the freezer.
- Enjoy everyday!
