Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Stir occasionally until slightly thickened (to the consistency of corn syrup), about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place strawberries and lemon juice (and herbs, if using) in blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. If using herbs, puree until they are very well chopped.
  3. Slowly pour in simple syrup until well combined. Pour into ice pop molds, and freeze for about 8 hours.

Tips & Notes

To make frozen smoothies or scoopable flavored ice, freeze the mixture in a freezer-safe container for 8 hours. Place chunks of mixture in blender or processor, and puree until light pink and smooth. Blend longer for a smoothie texture, or refreeze for scooping.
