Strawberry Season! (And a Recipe for Frozen Fruit Pops!)

It's strawberry season! Last week we went strawberry picking at a local farm, then this past weekend we went to a "Strawberry Festival" at another farm. This means we have been pretty much buried in strawberries recently, which is not a terrible problem to have, in my opinion.

So what are we doing with all these strawberries? WELL... lots of them have just been eaten as is, fresh, sweet and juicy. Some were frozen, to enjoy in smoothies and such later on. Some were made into a batch of strawberry jam, some into a batch of strawberry-rhubarb jam, and the rest were made into deeee-licious frozen fruit pops, which happen to be one of our favorite summer treats.

Seriously, these frozen fruit pops are so refreshing as a sweet summer treat, and they are completely and totally natural and healthy in every way. They are made from fruit. Just fruit. No added sugar or sweetener of any kind. Here is the super-easy recipe (it's barely even a recipe, it's so easy!)

Strawberry-Banana Frozen Fruit Pops

3 cups of strawberries, washed and hulled
1 large or two small bananas, broken into chunks.

In a blender, puree fruit until fairly smooth. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze.
