Raspberry Popsicles

This past Tuesday was the first day of summer, so I decided to kick it off using one of my all-time favorite fruits in a recipe.  Raspberries!  I REALLY love my raspberries a ton!  For the beginning of summer, I decided to make Raspberry Popsicles.  I mean who could have a whole summer without popsicles?

Before you start, sample your raspberries to make sure that they are ripe and sweet.

Four simple ingredients (raspberries, sugar, lemon juice, and water) are mixed in a food processor.

Strain the puree.  Throw away the seeds but keep the liquid.

Pour the raspberry liquid into popsicle molds. (I used star-shaped ones)

Put the tops on and they’re ready to freeze.

Try ‘em on a hot summer day!

I think that you should make this recipe because the kids will love them.  Could you imagine your kid walking through the front door with a friend on a hot summer day and asking for a popsicle?  My mom could definitely imagine me asking for one of these!

And even a kid can make it…. Like me!

Raspberry Popsicles

Yield: About 6 popsicles

Prep Time: 20 min + freeze time

You've gotta have popsicles (these!) in the summer!

Ingredients:

2 (6 ounce) containers fresh raspberries
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/3 cup water

Directions:

1. In a food processor, puree all ingredients until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a medium bowl; strain- pressing on the solids to allow the liquid to come through into the bowl. Pour the liquid puree into a pitcher or a large measuring cup with a pouring spout (throw out the seeds that get stuck in the strainer). Pour the raspberry liquid into popsicle molds. Cover and insert the sticks.

2. Freeze until firm.

3. When you're ready to eat one, run the bottoms of the molds under warm water for 20 to 30 seconds to loosen the popsicle from the mold. Remove it from the mold and eat immediately!

    Wow, you make me wish I had picked up that package of raspberries last night at the grocery store! These look wonderful. There is nothing better than a popsicle on a hot summer day. Is it okay if I highlight these popsicles in my Friday Favorite Finds this week?

    What a great idea to make your own popsicles. They look positively refreshing and delicious. We have lots of strawberries in our garden right now so we’ll substitute them for the raspberries.

    I bet it would be really good to make these as ice cubes and put them in lemonade during the summer!
