Strawberries are perfect for popsicles: they offer a sweet/tart finish that loses none of its punch when frozen.

Ingredients

Unsweetened frozen strawberries

1 pound(s), (450 g) hulled, thawed

Honey

3 tbsp(s), (45 ml)

Fresh lemon juice

1 tsp(s), (5 ml)

Table salt

tsp(s), (0.5 ml)

Basil

6 tbsp(s), torn into little bits

Instructions

  1. Place strawberries, honey, lemon juice and salt in the canister of a large blender; cover and blend until smooth, stopping machine to scrape ingredients off sides of canister at least once. Add basil; cover blender and pulse until well blended (but not pureed).
  2. Divide mixture among six 75 ml (1/3 cup) popsicle molds; freeze until solid.
  3. Serving size: 1 popsicle

Notes

Buy a 450-g (1-lb) bag of frozen strawberries and thaw it for about 36 hours in the refrigerator; then open the bag and use every drop of juice along with the fruit in the bag.For an even more sophisticated finish, add up to 1 ml (1/4 tsp) freshly ground black pepper with the salt.
