Strawberry Rum Chillers

It’s popsicle season and that is a big deal around my home. That said, these popsicles are a favorite and a constant in my freezer. Of course you can skip the rum and just keep the popsicles as a straight-up fruity ice pop for the kiddos and it’ll be just as good. If you do decide to make two batches, don’t forget to mark one from another. In my house, I mark the kid-friendly pops with a smiley face so there’s never any confusion.

And since these are a favorite, lucky for me strawberries are available year-around with peak season in California starting in March and ending late fall. So I take full advantage of the the year-round crop, but will stock up when when they are in season by freezing them or using strawberries as the base for many of the fruit pops I serve to my family. A good thing, since strawberries have more vitamin C than an orange and its loaded with nutrients.

I usually limit my boys on sweet treats for the day, but these fall under the unlimited category. I let them indulge as the craving arises. That is except for the baby, who would probably eat one popsicle after another until he fell over from overeating.

    I learned that strawberries from CA are grown in the perfect climate because of the warm sunny days & the cool coastal nights.
