As you know, I’ve been secretly hoarding popsicle ideas this winter in between snow shoveling breaks and pretending I’m back in Sedona, Arizona where it’s nice and warm and the sun is always shining.
During the summer one of my favorite cheat drinks is strawberry sage lemonade, and it just so happened I picked up some fresh sage at the farmers market this weekend, so I decided to whip up my favorite red berry with this divine herb and turn it into a fresh, naturally sweet little frozen delicacy.
I’ve run out of official popsicle containers with all the popsicles I’ve been putting together lately, so I used my FoodSaver and used the sealer to create little tubes out of their vaccuum seal bags. (I love my FoodSaver, by the way!)
I used a marinade injector and injected 1.5oz in each tube. Except for one, which I made too small and it blew up all over my husband who was kindly holding them open for me. Thankfully, he was a good sport, but next time I’ll invest in these things.
Maybe I’ll turn the heat up to 80 and get crazy eating these things, who knows? At less than one carb each for six servings, I’m ready to party!
- 8 medium-sized strawberries (hulled)
- 3 sage leaves
- 2 tbsp water
- Blend all of the ingredients in a blender (I use the single-serving attachment on my blender)
- Pour into your favorite popsicle molds (mine were 1.5 oz each - which made 6 servings)
