Raspberry Lime Popsicles

July 11, 2011

Nothing beats a great popsicle on a steaming hot summer day. Unfortunately, most of the popsicles sold in stores may be cold, but they are full of chemistry kit ingredients.  It is hard to find a popsicle made of the real fruit whose taste they claim to bear.  Luckily it is very easy to make your own.  Popsicles molds make this easier, but they are not essential.  You can make popsicles in small yogurt cups, ice-cube trays, or even small mason jars as Local Kitchen did recently.

Raspberry Lime Popsicles are loaded with raspberries and just enough sugar to bring out their flavor, without being overly sweet. The lime zest and juice adds a bright tang. Mmmm. Oh, and the color.  The color is so vibrant and real.    Simply whirl up the ingredients, strain out the seeds, and you are ready pour this raspberry goodness into a mold.

When the popsicles are solid, slip them from the mold for a truly refreshing treat. If you are serving them to kids, you may want to make this an outdoor dessert or at least have a wet rag on hand.  We had some very red faces at our house after the kiddos eagerly chomped these down. This is a dessert that grownups and kids alike will love. They are very, very good.

Update: Here is another popsicle recipe that has won over our hearts and appetites!  Red, White, and Blue Popsicles

Raspberry Lime Popsicles

makes 8 4-ounce popsicles

4 cups raspberries
7 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon lime zest, very finely minced
1 tablespoon lime juice

8 popsicle sticks

Wash raspberries. Put all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Strain mixture and discard the raspberry seeds. Pour strained mixture into popsicle molds, insert popsicle sticks,  and freeze overnight until firm.  If you have trouble removing the popsicles from their mold, run the mold under warm water for a minute or two and the popsicles should slip right out.

If you do not have popsicle molds, you can use small yogurt containers, ice cube trays, or mason jars.

Here is a printer friendly version of the recipe:  Raspberry Lime Popsicles
