Baby Food Friday: Strawberry Sorbet Popsicles

Strawberry season is upon us here in the Fraser Valley and being a little hopeful that summer will EVENTUALLY get here, I thought a recipe for popsicles would be perfect. These popsicles are a great alternative to the store bought sugar-laden popsicles that stain everything they touch.

You can be creative and use whatever type of fruit you like. Or, you can even go crazy and make two or three tone popsicles. Just fill a bit of your mold, freeze, then add another fruit mixture and freeze again. You can also mix some yogurt in too if you like. Popsicle molds are available everywhere it seems. As always, make sure the ingredients you are using are age appropriate for your little one.Strawberry Sorbet Popsicle

Strawberry Sorbet Popsicles (makes about 1 cup or 4 small popsicles)

2 tbsp superfine sugar
3 tbsp water
1/2 lb strawberries, hulled and cut in half
juice of 1 medium orange (about 3 tbsp)

Put the sugar and water into a saucepan and boil until syrupy (about 3 minutes). Allow to cool. Puree the strawberries with an electric hand blender and combine with the cooled syrup and orange juice, then pour this mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze until solid.
