I found some fresh raspberries on sale at the grocery store and I decided to turn them into refreshing popsicles to deal with the hot summer days ahead! Note that you need popsicle molds, but they’re $10 at the grocery store. It’s worth it. This recipe yields 2 cups and makes 8 regular-size popsicles.
- 1 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup sugar
This recipe is extremely simple. Pulse the raspberries in a food processor. You need 1 1/4 cup of raspberry juice.
Depending on their size, you might need a little bit more than 1 1/2 cup of fresh raspberries to yield this amount.
Add water and sugar and pulse some more.
When I made mine, I decided to keep the seeds, because I thought it would add flavor and texture. It turns out, all it really does is get stuck in your teeth. So I suggest straining the juice mixture before pouring it in the popsicle molds. I hope this little trick helps!
Freeze overnight and enjoy the next day.
