Tips to Make the Strawberry Lemon Popsicles

Ready to try your hands at this strawberry lemon popsicle recipe? Here are some tips and tricks you might want to take note of.

  • I have used agave nectar to add a bit of extra sweetness to these popsicles. You could also choose to add some maple syrup or a simple syrup made using sugar if you want to.
  • I would recommend using granulated sugar to ensure that it comes with the strawberry lemonade mixture well.
  • Fresh lemon juice is a key ingredient in this recipe, simply because it adds such a nice, bright flavor to the popsicles. If you don’t have fresh lemon juice, you can use the bottled variety too.
  • I also like to add a bit of lemon zest into the mixture when I’m feeling the need to make the popsicle mixture more tangy. I always make sure to use fresh lemons for the recipe though.
  • To make these strawberry lemonade popsicles more nutritious, you can swap the water in the recipe for coconut water instead.
  • If you have some leftover strawberry lemonade mixture, you can pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze it too! Just remember to cover the tray with plastic wrap to keep the freezer smells away.

How Should I Choose the Strawberries For these Popsicles?

You can use either fresh or frozen strawberries to make these strawberry lemon popsicles- I personally love using fresh strawberries, since they have a much brighter flavor.

When it is strawberry season, you can just stock up on the delicious fruit and freeze them until you’re ready to use them.

Just remember to use frozen strawberries right after they’re out from the freezer. You don’t really need to thaw them before turning them into this strawberry mixture.

How Do I Freeze the Strawberry Lemon Popsicles?

I like to use a good quality popsicle mold to make my homemade popsicles.

While you could stick to using your favorite popsicle mold option that need you to use wooden popsicle sticks to be added, I like to use the silicone versions, since they’re so much easier to tackle.

They usually come with the popsicle stick built in, which means you won’t need to use the wooden popsicle sticks.

More Flavor Combinations to Try

These strawberry lemon popsicles have the perfect balance of flavors, but if you really want to take it a step further and experiment with other flavors, you can totally do that too.

Here are a few variations to get you inspired.

Creamy Strawberry Popsicles

To make a nice creamy popsicle that has the base flavors of the good old homemade lemonade, you can add some coconut milk into the mixture.

Just remember to add lemon juice into the mixture towards the end, give it a quick stir and pour into a popsicle mold.

Orange Strawberry Lemon Popsicles

Orange juice can also be an amazing addition to these strawberry lemon popsicles. You can add orange juice into the mixture along with the other ingredients, and some extra lemon juice to bring out the tanginess of the strawberry lemonade base.
