strawberry lemonade ice pops

Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pops
1 can frozen lemonade concentrate (i used pink lemonade and it was a little bit tart, but o so good)
3 cups cold water (you may want to add a little more water, with 3 cups it tends to be a little bit strong. you can experiment and do what ever you like best)
1 pkg.(16 oz) frozen sliced strawberries
In a lrg. pitcher, stir together the lemonade concentrate and water. Place strawberries into the container of a blender, and puree until smooth. Pour in some of the lemonade if necessary to facilitate blending. Stir strawberry puree into the lemonade. Pour into molds, and freeze until firm, about 4 hrs.

i used dixie cups, of course you could use the store bought plastic molds. i cut our wax paper, and poked popcicle sticks in the middle. the sticks had a hard time staying up straight. when i made them the second time i used foil wrap and that worked out perfect. cling wrap didnt work so well either. when they were done, i just peeled off the cup.
you can make these with all differant fruit and juice combos.
i have tried orange juice with bananas and pinapple. you could also do limeade juice with strawberries. any combo is yum a dum!
