Remove the stems from the strawberries. dice.
Place in a large bowl. Mix in the lemon juice, and sugar. Let it rest for 10 minutes on the counter.

Step 4: Serving

I used plain yogurt for this recipe, but you can try with a fruit-flavored yogurt to make a combination. Some good ones are peaches, blueberries, raspberries, banana, or any kind of berry. In that case, halve the amount of sugar used, because there will be some already in the yogurt.
If you don't care for the texture and have bits of fruit in the popsicles, you can blend it in the food processor instead of mashing them to make them.
To make sugar-free popsicles, you can use your preferred sweetener. Some options are agave, maple syrup, or even honey. Be mindful that will alter the flavor of the popsicles.
If you have an ice cream maker, you can make this into ice cream instead of popsicles. In that case, make some extra strawberry puree to top the ice cream scoops.
If you are making them for toddlers, I would skip the sugar and sweeteners entirely. The strawberries should make it plenty sweet for little kids.
- Fresh fruit at the peak ripeness are nature's candies, and I used season strawberries in this recipe. The sweetness of your pops will depend on the sweetness of the fruit you use, and you may need to adjust it to your taste.
- I love reusable popsicle molds , and I have many sizes and shapes. But if you don't have them, just freeze them in glasses or cups that are slopped outward.
- You can cut bamboo skewers or chopsticks in half instead of popsicle sticks.
