I finally jumped on the popsicle bandwagon and bought the molds that I saw here and here. They make me very happy, as do the popsicles they contain. For my first attempt, I went with a strawberry peach flavor since both were readily available in my kitchen. Perfectly sweet, cold and smile-inducing, all the things you want on a hot summer day.
*For you aspiring popsicle-makers, you can find the molds on Amazon. I had to run them under warm water to slip the popsicles out, but otherwise, they're pretty great.
Frozen Strawberry-Peach Pops
Recipe courtesy of Country Living
1/2 cup sugar
6 ounces strawberries, hulled
6 ounces peaches, peeled and pitted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Bring 1/2 cup of water and the sugar to a boil and let cool. Puree the strawberries, peaches, cooled syrup, lemon juice, and 1/2 cup water in a food processor. Fill five 4-ounce paper cups or popsicle molds with the strawberry-peach mixture. For paper cups, place on a tray, cover securely with plastic wrap, and pierce a popsicle stick through the plastic into each cup. For popsicle molds, follow manufacturer's instructions. Freeze until solid.
