Summer has come – with a vengeance – to the West Coast of Canada – 30C in the shade, gorgeous summer! Being used to the rain and the clouds this year, I am loving it, soaking it in!
I found some amazing, locally grown strawberries , deep red, sweet, and delicious. As sweet and tasty as I remember them from my childhood! I bought 2 trays and hurried home to make some refreshing, delicious – and healthy Popsicles. Pure, refreshing and delicious. on a hot summers day.
These are so easy to make and they are so tasty!! It took me 5 min to blend them together and pop them in the freezer!
Strawberry, basil and lime popsicle
800 g of strawberries
small bunch of fresh basil
freshly squeezed lime juice from 2 limes
Wash the strawberries and remove the green top, put them in the blender along with the lime juice , the basil and the dates – blend them smooth and pour them into popsicle moulders – pop them in the freezer and wait patiently for them to freeze. This is truly the hardest part!!
I’m enjoying as virtually as I can 😀
These look delicious!

Great 🙂 Thank you!!! They were really good and refreshing in the heat!
Thursday is the local farmer’s market…Will be looking for fresh berries. Beautiful, Anne!
Thank you Annie!!
Don’t you just love farmers markets? – So wonderful to get all the locally grown and fresh produce! The best!
I am sure you could use any kind of berry with this recipe and even experiment with different herbs too – thyme and berries are so good too!
I will keep these in mind for Summer. They will be perfect for after a trip to the beach 🙂
So true, perfect combination 🙂
Yummy. A sophisticated Popsicle!
Thank you so much 🙂

Summer’s a real opportunity to get your your taste buds poppin’ with new, refreshing and unique flavours. Since I’m all about enjoying the heat, sunshine and fresh produce that abound during the season, I try not to let my culinary pursuits get too complicated or time consuming. “Simple and delicious” is my motto for summertime food prep, and this beautifully straightforward recipe by Anne Sture Tucker is just that. Four ingredients. Fresh, tangy, sweet and frozen! A classic with a modern twist. Easy to make and easy to enjoy. Perfect, perfect, perfect.
Anne’s blog is a treasure trove of great, green goodies, gorgeous food photography and a wholesome, healthy approach. If you haven’t already, check it out – you’ll come away just as I always do: inspired and salivating.
