Strawberry Popsicles

Growing up, my Mom always made those Jello & Kool-aid popsicles that were so yummy.  As an adult I discovered the Strawberry Frutare bars. But they have more sugar than I like, and are more than I want to pay for a treat. Hubby says these taste just like the real thing, so I’m happy 🙂

Boil together until berries can be mushed:

1cup water

1/3cup sugar (optional if using fresh/sweet berries) (I’m sure you could use the sweetener of your choice here)

3ish cups of strawberries (I used frozen, so put in a generous 3 cups)

Blend/puree in 1pkg of Jello (flavour of choice) until strawberries are as smooth or chunky as desired.

Pour into popsicle molds, insert sticks (I used disposable spoons, since that’s what I had) and freeze. Enjoy 🙂
