Firecracker Fruit Pops Print E-mail

You'll need:

  • 2 quarts of fresh strawberries or other fresh berries
  • 1/3 cup of sugar
  • 1-3 tablespoons of water


  • Measuring spoons
  • Food processor or blender
  • A scoop or ladle
  • Spatula
  • Plastic mold for ice pops
  • Or small paper cups and wooden craft sticks
    1. Wash the strawberries and put them in the food processor.
    2. Add the sugar.
    3. Process the berries until they are slushy. You may need to add a little water. Add one tablespoon of water, then see if the berries are turned to slush. There can be some big pieces but if they are over 1/2 inch big, they might not fit into the molds. If the berries are still in big hunks, add a little more water.
    4. Scoop the strawberry slush into the molds.
    5. Put the molds into the freezer for at least one hour.
    6. When the slush has frozen through, run a little warm water on the outside of the mold to help loosen the pop so it will slide out easily. If you're using paper cups, you can just tear the paper off.
