Well its day 3 of my popsicle party this week! Today I am excited to be joining up with some amazing bloggers to bring you a fantastic assortment of summery popsicle recipes! Make sure check them out at the end of this post! If you missed my earlier popsicles you can see my pina colada popsicles here, and my mango mojito popsicles here. Today I am sharing my strawberry mojito popsicles! These can be made with or without alcohol. Since I do not drink and since my kids absolutely love these popsicles, I do not add any alcohol in mine.
Strawberry mojitos are something my sisters and I make when we are together on a girls trip. We often mix up our own tart drink, and often add a few extras to the drink. Strawberries are so good in this. We have also switched out mint for basil when making them, but I find it tastes really good with the mint in these strawberry mojito popsicles.
The key to getting the full flavor in the popsicles is to use an immersion blender to break up the strawberries and mint. Since this only has a few ingredients its pretty easy to do.
How to make strawberry mojito popsicles:
These popsicles are super easy to make. First let’s talk about the popsicle mold I use. This popsicle mold is really great. It’s a silicone mold, which makes it easy to remove the popsicles once they are frozen.
It also comes with individual wrappers for your popsicles to store them in as well as a big bag of popsicle sticks. Its great!
This popsicle recipe is super easy.
I use frozen from concentrate limeade as the base to this because it has the perfect tartness. You can either blend up and puree your strawberries before you mix them into the limeade or you can use an immersion blender along and blend up the mint and strawberries together. Its nice to have it be a little chunky.
The only other thing I add to my strawberry mojito popsicles is some simple syrup.
If you don’t know how to make a simple syrup, here is the low down:
You simply need to use equal parts water and sugar. Heat it in a saucepan until the sugar is dissolved. I like to take mine to almost boiling. There are a few reasons why I use simple syrup, but the main reason is to give your popsicle a smooth texture. I didn’t want undissolved sugar granules in my popsicles.
Add 1 tablespoon on syrup at a time and taste to make sure I get the correct ratio. Sometimes it can change a bit depending on the ingredients.

These refreshing strawberry mojito popsicles can be made for kids and adults! They are easy to make with only a few ingredients. They are tart and sweet and are perfect for summer!
- 2 cups limeade I use the frozen from concentrate and mix it with water before using.
- 5-6 strawberries
- 5-6 mint leaves
- 2-3 tbsp simple syrup You can use whatever sweetener you like!
Combine the limeade, mint, simple syrup, and strawberries by using an immersion blender to break them up. You could use a regular blender but I find it create too much foam on the top of the mixture.
Pour into a popsicle mold, and freeze for at least 4 hours. Enjoy!
