Hello! It’s Jenny from Honey and Birch again. It doesn’t matter whether we’re having a hot day or a cool one – my brain can only think about cool treats and desserts lately.

This easy recipe uses some of my favorite summer ingredients – strawberries and basil!  Also, there is a little bit of moscato in it too – what a perfect way to use up leftover wine from a girl’s night!

Start making these popsicles by pureeing the strawberries and basil in a food processor. This is the most important part so pay close attention. You can control the consistency of the popsicle during this process – if you want little strawberry chunks then puree for a little less time.

When you are almost done pureeing, add the moscato. Also, if you want a sweeter popsicle, now is the time to add wine or honey. Everything is going to get a little foamy – this is okay. When you have reached the consistency you want, stop your food processor.

It’s time to pour everything into your popsicle mold. Be careful not to overfill – you need to leave room for the sticks! Pop the sticks into the liquid and then place the mold in your freezer for a few hours.

When the liquid has frozen, your Strawberry Basil Moscato Popsicles are ready to be enjoyed!
