Strawberry Lemon Popsicles Sweetened with Monk Fruit

These popsicles are the perfect recipe for the long hot Labor Day weekend that is upon us. I made them this morning so when temperatures were peeking this afternoon Brian and I indulged. The refreshing blend of sweet and slightly tart was mouthwatering.

Monk fruit powdered sugar gives the strawberry lemon popsicles the perfect amount of sweet with zero added calories. Be sure to use powdered sugar or you will have undissolved sugar granules settle at the tip of your popsicles.

Freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice is going to provide the best flavor. Meyer lemons are thought to be a natural cross between a mandarin orange and a regular lemon. They are less acidic and sweeter—in a pH test, (according to a test done by Cook’s Illustrated). Standard lemon juice was found to be 1.3 times more acidic than Meyer lemon juice (their pH values are 2.23 and 2.33, respectively)—and their rind is more fragrant when zested. If you don’t have a Meyer lemon you may need to add more powdered monk fruit sugar to achieve the perfect balance of sweet with just a hint of tart.

Strawberries are best when they are fresh. The quicker you use the berries the better. They will keep for a few days in the refrigerator, but they start going downhill almost immediately. Fiber comprises 26% of the carbs in strawberries and so they should not lead to spikes in blood sugar levels and are considered safe for those with diabetes. For the same reason they are considered an anti-inflammatory food (unless you have a food sensitivity or allergy).

I was concerned that I might have trouble getting the pops out of the mold intact. I needn’t have worried, the pops popped out of the mold clean-as-a-whistle. I found the silicon molds by doing an online search for a popsicle mold. It even came with a little brush, to clean the mold, and a funnel.

For a refreshing summer-time treat give these strawberry lemon popsicles, sweetened with monk fruit powdered sugar, a try. With just 4 ingredients they are easy and fun-to-make-popsicles for the kids or the kid in you.
