Balsamic Strawberry Popsicles

I know this combination might seem odd but I've been to Italy a few times and they pour balsamic vinegar over strawberries for dessert. With this special ingredient you don't taste the vinegar, but it makes the strawberries taste more vibrant so it's a perfect combination. The vinegar adds a sweet and sour twinge, you won't believe how sweet these strawberries taste, it's unbelievable! Strawberries also benefit from a touch of lemon juice to prop up their weak natural acidity. I am sure you will love theses brightly flavored popsicles too! I bought the white balsamic vinegar from Trader Joe's and also used it in this recipe.

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries
  • 2TB white balsamic vinegar
  • 2TB Ideal Sugar
  • 1 TB freshly squeeze lemon juice
  1. Wash and dry the strawberries.
  2. Place the strawberries and sugar in a food processor and pulse just until the mixture is finely chopped  but still chunky; you don't want a smooth purée. 
  3. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.
  4. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 6 hours of overnight.
Makes 6 popsicles.
