These Strawberry Mojito Popsicles are the perfect way to beat the summer heat. Refreshing, fruity, and just a little boozy thanks to a splash of rum. Yum!
The heat is already picking up down here in Florida, and so I have summer on the brain! I grabbed some fresh strawberries and mint at the farmers market last weekend, so I decided to go ahead and create my first frozen treat recipe of the year - these Strawberry Mojito Popsicles!
And what could possible be better than a frozen treat. Well, a frozen treat with a little splash of rum. There's not much to say here - these are super simple to make and obviously totally delicious!
Oh, and these delightful treats are 100% vegan and vegetarian friendly.
Tip & Variations
Use fresh ingredients! Fresh strawberries, lime juice, and mint are key to making these popsicles taste their best. Yes, of course you can use frozen strawberries if you need to, but I promise the fresh ones are worth the effort.
Get a good popsicle mold. A decent quality popsicle mold will ensure that your popsicles freeze evenly and release easily from the mold. Silicone or plastic molds are both great options - I like this inexpensive one.
Go wild with the rum! I added just about 2 oz of rum to my recipe, which makes four popsicles, so it's really just a splash. You can feel free to add more if you want boozier popsicles. Or of course you can leave out the alcohol for a kid-friendly version.
