I wait all year long for berries, rhubarb and all the good staff that comes with Spring. I love to go around the web and check out all the creative recipes my fellow bloggers come up with, inspired by the season like these strawberry S’mores bites, this raspberry tart or this hibiscus strawberry rhubarb iced tea. All three recipes look great.
Sometimes I feel that some recipes don’t need explanation. This strawberry popsicle recipe speaks by itself. No need to tell you how good it is or how easy it is to make. Besides, what can go wrong with fresh strawberries and orange juice, frozen on a stick?. See for yourself, it won’t disappoint!
(makes 14 cannelés size popsicles)
1 pound strawberries, hulled and halved
2 ½ cups orange juice
plus the zest of 3 oranges
½ cup agave nectar
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring it to a boil, cook the strawberries for 15 minutes. Turn the heat off and using a hand blender, puree the strawberries. Carefully, taste the puree to see if it needs more agave. Pour the mixture in molds, let it cool completely and freeze it.
