Pour and Freeze: Pour the strawberry lemon mixture into popsicle molds, ensuring you leave a small gap at the top of the mold to allow for expansion. Insert the wooden popsicle sticks into the molds.

Freeze: Place the molds in the freezer and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until completely solid.

If you have difficulty removing the popsicles from the mold, place or run the mold under a little hot water until you are able to do so easily.

Handy Tips

  • Storing: Once the popsicles are fully frozen, you can keep them in the molds for easy storage and to prevent freezer burn. Alternatively, you can remove them from the molds, wrap each popsicle in plastic wrap, or store them in an airtight container.
  • Molds: Small paper or Dixie cups can be used as a substitute if you don’t have popsicle molds. Just cover the top with plastic wrap and insert a wooden stick through the wrap to hold it in place.
  • Sweetness: Adjust the sweetness by adding more or less agave nectar according to your taste. For a different flavor profile, try substituting agave nectar with maple syrup or honey.
