Pomegranate Strawberry Popsicles use fresh or frozen strawberries. Maple syrup is added to cut the pomegranate tartness and you have heaven on a stick.
I have been waiting and waiting for it to get warm enough so I could make popsicles. The day has arrived and now my mind is jumping all over the place with all the flavors I want to blend. I have had a little help in my first decision.
The story begins – This year, Ed has got into smoothies. He especially loves using strawberries as the base and I must say he is so funny to see in the kitchen. You would think he was a 5 star chef with his ceremonies. Half bending over, as they do on television, while he adds his ingredients. A little of this, a lot of that.
Then he likes to add a liquid of some sort – coconut milk is his first choice but he is not limited. When he flips on the mixer it gets shook all over the place so that he makes sure it is getting mixed well enough inside of the blender. Yes, he shakes the outside of the blender. Love him!
Anyway, his idea of the additional liquid inspired me. I have always made straight fruit popsicles but I thought, why not? That is how Pomegranate Strawberry Popsicles were born. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries but at the moment we are using frozen because fresh is still so expensive. Maple syrup is added to cut the pomegranate tartness and you have heaven on a stick.
If you need more popsicles you might also like to try Pineapple Kiwi Popsicles. Only 2 ingredients in this one!
Pomegranate Strawberry Popsicles
- 2 cups strawberries - frozen or fresh
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1 cup apple juice
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup
- Well, this is it!
- 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 your popsicle molds.
- If you are lucky enough to have a little bit left over that doesn't fit in the popsicle mold - drink it up like a smoothie - delicious!
- I use the Norpro Ice Pop Maker
- If you click on the above link it will take you to Amazon if you would like to place an order.
- This mixture fills up my holder that makes 10 popsicles.
- Put on the lid and stick in the popsicles 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.
- Place in the freezer overnight.
- If you want the holder to make more popsicles - take the frozen popsicles out of the mold and put in a freezer bag.
- Replace in the freezer.
