Recipe | Strawberry Mojito Popsicles (Awesome for Zoku!)

Strawberry Mojito Popsicles
I’ve been eyeing the Zoku Quick Pop Maker for a while. I talked myself out of buying one several times, but after moving here I found myself at the mall on a particularly hot day and I finally gave in and bought one. And naturally, I bought the Zoku Quick Pops book too. And then I got the accessory kit. I’m always a sucker for the upsale. (I’m also that person who stands in line at Bed, Bath & Beyond and is all, “Oh! A bottle opener shaped like a platypus! I need one of these! Oh! And a giant bag of licorice! I love licorice!”)

Even with the official Zoku book, I still couldn’t resist trying my hand at coming up with some of my own recipes. I picked up some strawberries and mint at the farmers market last weekend, so I decided to combine them with lime to make Strawberry Mojito Popsicles. Despite the name, there’s no alcohol in this recipe because apparently you’re not supposed to use alcohol in the Zoku. But! If you’re making these in another kind of popsicle mold or if you don’t mind chancing it with the Zoku, go wild and add some rum.

Strawberry Mojito Popsicles

A sweet, tart, and slightly minty popsicle. Perfect for making in the Zoku Quick Pop Maker!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c. ripe strawberries, quartered
  • juice and zest from one whole lime
  • 1/4 c. fresh mint
  • 2 tbsp. agave nectar (you may have to add more or less, depending on the sweetness of the strawberries you're using)

Instructions

  1. Add 1 1/4 cup of strawberries and remaining ingredients to food processor and process until smooth. Stir in remaining strawberries or, if using the Zoku, carefully stick strawberries on sides of molds. Pour fruit mixture into popsicle molds. Serve when frozen solid (about 5 minutes in the Zoku).

    These sound so good. I checked out the popsicle maker on Amazon. I may have to splurge! :)

  2. Texas Type A Mom says

    Yum these sound so good and like a real adult treat! I haven't heard of the Zoku – what a neat idea!

  3. teri@thefreshmancook says

    I have been on a strawberry binge of late and this looks pretty darn yummy. Can I add rum? :) I love an adult popsicle!

  5. BEadECLECTIC says

    Mmmm…. these look super tasty! I would probably want to leave out the lime and agave (wouldn't need sweetener without the lime I'm guessing?), but it sounds delish with them, too!

  6. Lesley says

    I don't know how this is possible….but I have, at this moment, every single ingredient in my home. My husband just looked over and said, " Ooooh, how do you make those? " and I said, " Oh my gosh babe…we actually have all of this stuff! "
    We're both so surprised and happy!

    Had a tupperware pop maker years ago and never seemed to use it much but I think we were geared so much to freezing kool-aid drinks and real fruit never came up. Now as I get older and more health aware this sort of frozen treat sounds so good. As for using alcohol it acts as an anti-freeze lowering the freezing point (alcohol freezes at around -173 degrees F; water freezes at 32 degrees F) so too much and your pops would not set. In ice cream you can get a way with about 2 Tablespoons of liquor to a quart so you could probable sneak in a tiny bit for flavor and still get the pops to freeze though they might not be quite so solid. Might be an interesting thing to experiment with. If it will not freeze hard you could still have a nice slushy frozen drink.

      I haven’t tried putting alcohol in my popsicles, but I know other people have done it with success. I think you’re right that it has to be a small amount.
