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. I bought a popsicle mold recently so today I am sharing a recipe for Strawberry Basil Moscato Popsicles. I didn’t realize how easy popsicles were to make. Now, I just can’t stop making pops!
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!

Oh yum! We’re definitely going to have to make these before the summer is over!
Tried these last night!! They were so good!!! I’m going to try mint next time, although the basil was so good. I’m also going to try Lambrusco too!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
