Strawberry Pops

Let me start out by saying that Martha Stewart usually does not have my vote when it comes to recipes. I'm sure they are wonderful and tasty, but they almost always have random crazy ingredients that no normal person has in their pantry, or use some long, drawn out cooking method for no good reason and I'm just not into all that craziness. This recipe is the complete opposite. If you're looking for an easy, healthy, summer treat, these Strawberry Pops are it. With only two ingredients, it's pretty much as easy as you can get. As a side note, the recipe says it makes 8, but they are using the plastic cup & popsicle stick method. I bought some ice-pop tray things (mine only had 4 instead of 6) at Target and it filled them up, plus had a little extra. I ended up putting the extra into regular old ice cube trays (it only filled up a couple of the compartments), but I may make more next time and fill them up all the way because they're the perfect size to just grab a bite when you want a quick snack. All that to say, it really depends on how you make them. Mine pretty much only made 4, with a little extra.


1 1/2 pints strawberries, rinsed and hulled **This would be equal to one plastic container of strawberries you buy at the grocery store.**

1/2 cup confectioner's sugar


  1. Pulse 1 1/2 pints strawberries, rinsed and hulled, with 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and 1/3 cup water in food processor until pureed, with some chunks of berries remaining. Pour half of mixture into a bowl.
  2. Pulse remainder until smooth. Stir puree into mixture in bowl. Pour into 3-ounce molds or plastic cups, insert sticks or wooden spoons, and freeze until solid, at least 8 hours.
