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), hulled, thawed

honey

3 Tbsp

fresh lemon juice

1 tsp

table salt

tsp

basil

6 leaf/leaves, torn into little bits

Instructions

  1. Place strawberries, honey, lemon juice and salt in a large blender; cover and puree until smooth, stopping machine once or twice to scrape ingredients off sides of container back into mixture. Add basil; cover and pulse until well blended (but not pureed).
  2. Divide mixture among six 1/3-cup popsicle molds; freeze until solid.
  3. Serving size: 1 popsicle
Notes
Buy a 1-pound 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 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper with the salt.
