Strawberry-Lemonade Ice Pops

Portland is about to get hit with another little heat wave. Thanks global warming! During the unexpectedly warm days earlier this Spring and Edith and I found ourselves in desperate need of some tasty treats to cool off. So we turned to some homemade popsicles! Our Imperfect Produce box delivered some early season strawberries which inspired this recipe. Now that Oregon strawberries are finally in season, I'm looking forward to making these popsicles with the super sweet Hood strawberries.
