All last summer I was hunting for Popsicle molds. All I wanted to do was make a variety of fun popsicles to eat on those really hot days. Everywhere I looked only had those molds that are plugged into the wall and are rather pricey and more extravagant than what I needed. Finally, in September, I found some cute ones at Ikea and my summer popsicle to-make list grew. On the top of that list were these delicious pops made from berry beer, strawberries and lime.
I used a Belgian fruit beer called Fruitesse which is flavoured with cherry, raspberry, elderberry and strawberry. I added some mashed strawberries and lime juice to add texture and flavour. The result was a delightfully fruity and refreshing pop with just a hint of lime. It makes the perfect adult dessert after a BBQ on a hot day.
Berry Beer and Lime Popsicles
- 1 cup fruit beer *strawberry or berry beer
- 1/4 cup sugar
- juice from 1 lime
- 1/4 cup strawberries mashed
- Combine all ingredients in a large measuring cup. Stir until sugar has completely dissolved.
- Pour into popsicle molds and place in the freezer for 4-6 hours. Run the popsicle mold under warm water to loosen the frozen pop from the mold.
