Strawberry Mint Popsicles

strawberry mint popsiclesThe hottest days of the summer are on the way.  Now is the time to pick fresh strawberries and tuck some into the freezer for warm weather treats such as smoothies, sangria, or these delicious strawberry mint popsicles.  This unusual recipe calls for cooking the berries and sugar first to bring out the sweet jammy flavor, adding some lemonade and mint and  then cooling and freezing the mixure.   I hope you will have fun picking berries now and enjoy a delicious popsicle cool down during the hot days this summer.
