For years the only Sonic was almost 2 hours away from my house but they constantly aired commercials for their delicious treats on our local channels. I think it was an evil marketing ploy to convince me to spend 4 hours in the car just to enjoy a limeade. Unfortunately for them, I never gave in. I just made sure to stop on all of my trips to the beach.
Right before I got married (almost two years ago now) they announced that they were building a Sonic in the next town over. This is when we lived in the middle of no where, so a Sonic was pretty big news. They opened one week before the wedding and I was there a few days later to enjoy a much deserved limeade.
Then, ironically, we rarely went there. I guess just because we knew there was one in close proximity it just wasn't as appealing. Now, after spending years and years with the closest sonic two hours away, I now have three of them within 45 minutes of each other.
Now what does Sonic have to do with Strawberry Lime Popsicles? Not much actually, other than when I tried these out before freezing them to make sure it was sweet enough, I couldn't get over how similar this tasted to a strawberry limeade. Like identical. I actually combined the leftover mixture with some carbonated water and a splash of Mountain Dew. It wasn't perfect, but it wasn't bad either.
Strawberry Lime Popsicles
Source: A Cookaholic Wife Creation
Servings: 4-6 popsicles
- 1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup sugar
- zest of one lime
- juice of one lime
1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more water if the mixture is too thick.
2. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
These really are delicious and probably even better for you than the fruit bars you can get in the grocery stores. I plan on picking up a big carton of strawberries at the grocery store this week and freezing them so I can make these tasty popsicles throughout the winter.
