Frozen Berry Pops

With an abundance of fresh local strawberries and blueberries, these frozen berry pops can be enjoyed all summer long. No special frozen pop molds needed, freeze them in paper cups!

Ingredients:
1 lemon
1½ cups fresh strawberries, quartered
1½ cups fresh blueberries
¼ cup water
¼ cup honey

Remove 2 teaspoons zest and squeeze 1 tablespoon juice from lemon. In a blender or food processor combine strawberries, blueberries, and the water. Cover and blend or process until nearly smooth (see Tip). Add lemon zest and juice and honey. Cover and blend or process until combined.

Pour mixture into eight 3-oz. paper cups or ice pop molds. Insert sticks in molds. If using paper cups, cover each cup with foil. Cut a small slit in foil and insert a wooden stick into each pop. Freeze overnight or until firm.

Tip: For a smoother pop, blend or process fruit until nearly smooth as directed in Step 1, then press through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds. Continue as directed.
