Strawberries

With strawberry season in full swing and the fantastic availability to get farm fresh ones here in Southern Maryland. I am making jams ,preserves and compote already. So I decided to make an ice pop type dessert for Tim. With His diabetes I have to be really careful of what I prepare for him.

So I hope ya’ll give these ice pops a try and let me know what ya’ll think.

Strawberry Banana Ice Pops:

2 pint (4 cups) strawberries, hulled

2 bananas peeled and mashed

1/2 cup sugar or 12 packets of sugar substitute

Directions

In a blender, puree strawberries, bananas, and sugar until smooth. Pressing with a spoon or rubber spatula, pass mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a glass measuring cup (discard solids).

Pour mixture into eight 3-ounce pop molds. Insert sticks, then freeze until firm, at least 4 hours. Will keep well for about a week if they last that long.
