I bet if you asked my children what they like about summer, popsicles would feature pretty high on their list. I cannot bear those awful artificial lollipops which stain my children’s clothes and skin and made these as an alternative today. Bless her heart my daughter declared, "these are the best popsicles in the world!".
Strawberry & Pink Milk Popsicles.
21/2 cups of strawberries washed and hulled.
2 cups of water
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup milk
Put the strawberries, water and sugar into a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Strain the strawberries in a sieve and push the pulp through a sieve.
Save the remaining pulp for a smoothie later.
Wait for the juice to cool down.
Mix ½ cup of milk with ¼ cup of strawberry juice – yummy pink milk.
Add milk and juice mix to popsicle mold and freeze for an hour.
Add strawberry juice to the mold and freeze for at least another 2 hours.
Works well with any berries and smoothies too. Lick until your heart’s content and never worry about permanently tattooing yourself or your clothes with hideous bright colours again.

Edited to add: Um bad spelling - that should be mould not mold. Unless you want a moldy popsicle that is.
