Strawberry lemonade popsicles are just the sweet treat we need on a hot summer day. They're super easy to make, and of course, super delicious, too.
Something about popsicles remind me of hot summer days, lounging in the grass barefoot, the music box sound of an ice cream truck long gone and the forgotten giggles of childhood. I have never been much for frozen treats; one or two bites and I'm satisfied, so anything on a stick melted long before I even came close to finishing. I recently saw a popsicle recipe book and was reminded of the endless flavor combinations that are possible.
Even though I may not love lots of frozen treats, strawberry lemonade popsicles here and there would be nice.
And I do run a food blog... You know, cuz I needed an excuse to have popsicle molds in the kitchen... 😀
These strawberry lemonade popsicles became melty little treats almost instantly, and I believe I may be hooked. Now there is a list of popsicle recipes I want to try making.
Have any great flavors you want to recommend?
What about ADULT POPSICLES!!! These might be my absolute favorite summer treat. Try out these frozen bits of boozy goodness.

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles
For the Lemonade Layer:
- 1 ⅓ cups lowfat yogurt - plain or vanilla
- ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
- 5 tablespoon sugar
For the Strawberry Layer:
- 1 pint strawberries - cored and quartered
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 cup plain yogurt
First, make the lemonade layer mixture.
- Heat the lemon juice in a small, microwaveable bowl for around 45 seconds and dissolve all the sugar into it.
- Pour this mixture into a medium bowl with the yogurt and whisk until smooth.
- Refrigerate until ready to assemble popsicles.
Make strawberry layer mixture.
- Place the strawberries, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a bowl.
- Simmer for around five minutes until the strawberries are soft.
- Pour this mixture and the lemon juice into a food processor and pulse until almost pureed, but not liquefied. (I was feeling lazy and used a potato masher)
- Chill in the refrigerator until cool, and then whisk the yogurt into the strawberry mixture until well combined.
- Assemble the popsicles.
- Use a teaspoon or tablespoon to carefully spoon alternating layers of lemon and strawberry mixture into your molds.
- If you typically like your lemonade more sweet than tart, use more strawberry layers than lemon. If you prefer more tart than sweet, use more lemon layers than strawberry.
- Freeze overnight.
- To unmold, dip molds into warm water and gently pull popsicles out.
- Serve immediately.

Love it! Makes me think that summer is going to come barreling through my door. I think I might have to run out and grab some popsicle molds... 🙂
I need a popsicle maker. These are so cute!
Junia @ Mis Pensamientos says
this looks sooo refreshing!! i would love to have one of these right now...
Those are so great! I haven't had a popsicle in forever. I remember having them when I was younger on hot days in the summer when I needed something to cool off. Mom always had the popsicles in hand and ready to go for my siblings and I when we came for a break.
I love the colors with these Kita...seriously looks so refreshing!
loving the pretty 2 tone pops great job photographing too 🙂
Love these! They look so colorful and refreshing. Definitely want to bookmark these and give them a whirl.
Oh yum! These look so refreshing! And I have all the ingredients at hand ... no prizes for guessing what I'll be doing tomorrow 😀 I had an interesting popsicle recipe earlier to post but the popsicles disappeared before I could do so. They tend to do that don't they? Good excuse to make more! 😀
amanda @ fake ginger says
Love that these are made with yogurt! I'll have to buy some Popsicle molds soon so I can make them!
Everyone needs popsicle molds, especially when you can make tasty things like these!
I've got to get me a popsicle mold!! These look brr-reat!! LOL
Those look yummy! I so need to get a popcicle mold now!
Mary at n00bcakes says
I don't particularly like non-chocolate popsicles, but these sure do look pretty! 🙂
These treats of yours look beautiful!! Now I want to just jump in my car and buy popsicle molds!
Thank-you, Kita. I am 9 years old again - but with a lot more confidence. These look summer-sweet!
What fabulous popsicles! Perfect for the hot days of summer...with real fruit and yogurt...YUM!
I just made some popsicles, but these will have to be next! I love the layered look and flavor combination going on here.
Vicki @ WITK says
I just ordered some popsicle molds from amazon yesterday! Can't wait to try these and many more flavors!
These are so gorgeous, Kita. I have a jar of strawberry puree in the freezer and I've been meaning to do something like this with it!
Ahhh these are beautiful and look so good right now, especially since temps are finally getting hot!
The Mom Chef ~ Taking on Magazines One Recipe at a Time says
Oh, I am SO going to make these; heavy on the lemon part since we like tart here. I need to go pick more strawberries! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Alison @ Ingredients, Inc. says
These look amazing!!
I'm not a fan of lemonade, unless it's 5 parts sugar 1 part lemon. not a sour person. I'd take the sweet route with my popsicles. The strawberry layer is calling my name
What a great way to eat yogurt...it's been forever since I made popsicles. I must shop for some molds I think. Lemon flavor is always so refreshing and I can never resist strawberries.
I love the idea of sweet and sour together, so I'd love lemonade and strawberry together. Is it wrong to think that a Popsicle would be good dipped into an afternoon cocktail?
delicious lovely colour pops looks wonderful
Mary @ Delightful Bitefuls says
These sound and look silly delicious! Perfect for summer!
purabi naha says

These popsicles look refreshing and delicious! It's Winter over here so the thought of having them is sending chills through my body but would have to defintely keep them in mind when it gets warmer. Thanks for sharing!
Where did you get your popsicle mold? I've been looking for one with a shape like yours.
I found them on Amazon.com!
I love the look of your mold, was it this one?
I believe so!
These look so refreshing and GOOD! I included them in a Popsicle Feature on my blog. You can check it out at https://sittingatourkitchentable.blogspot.com/2011/06/me-likey-monday_27.html
These are amazing! My daughter and I made these last night and I am hooked. But just so everyone knows, popsicle molds are nice to have but not essential. We make out popsicles in either dixie cups, styrophom cups, or paper cups. I bought a giant box of popsicle sticks whole sale for the summer and we are on a mission to try a new flavor concoction every day of the spring/summer. You just put the popsicle mix into the cup, freeze them long enough to be slushy to hold up the stick (Honestly, we cheated on these ones and put the sticks right in. They ended up slanty but still deliscious), put the stick in and freeze overnight. When we're rady to eat them, we just cut/tear the cups off.
I cut down on the sugar by about 1/2 in each of the mixtures. I also let the strawberries sit in the sugar for about an hour before I mashed them. Delicious! I love keeping the sweet and sour separated, each bite is different 🙂 yum!
So I have the same Popsicle mold but it's so hard to get them out each time. Do you try to get the plastic part out or warm each under water and then pull out.? Sometimes I just wanna get one out..
I sometimes have to warm mine a minute or two under water. If you do this for all of them, wrap each in wax paper and seal with a rubber band and bam, you have them ready when you want to grab them.
Try putting each mixture in a zip lock bag.snip off a corner when ready to fill the molds and squirt it in.more control and less mess
Aly ~ Cooking In Stilettos says
Pass me one of these right now! They would be so refreshing on a hot day. Thank you so much for sharing at the Delicious Dishes Recipe Party Kita!
These sound so good and pretty healthy too. I like how the lemon layer isn't just just lemonade but lemon juice and yogurt so that it is creamy and not icey. Pinning to make soon!
