Homemade Strawberry Honey Ice Pops

As a child, summertime meant freedom to create and play outside as long as possible, and eat as many popsicles as we could find in the freezer. My two oldest children start school tomorrow, and I thought it would be a fun nod to summer, and a sweet goodbye if we made ice pops together. These homemade strawberry honey ice pops took less than 15 minutes of prep time to make, and even less time for my children to enjoy! My children love the simple sweetness of these ice pops, and I love the simple goodness of the three better for you ingredients. It is so nice to know what goes into your treats.
This recipe is 100% customizable. You can use whatever fruit or liquid you want. You can even add flavorings like vanilla or mint. However, I know my audience prefers for me to keep it simple. This recipe makes enough for 6 ice pops, so please feel free to adjust the portions accordingly.
I hope you enjoy this very simple recipe that is reminiscent of how summer should be: sweet and simple!

All three of my children (my baby included) loved these ice pops. It was a fun and healthy treat that we will continue since the high temperatures are not going anwyhere in Texas anytime soon.
