Strawberry Popsicles

Cati has an interesting approach to fruits. Some fruits she likes fresh and some fruits she likes only in the frozen-then-thawed variety. If I try to give her a fresh blueberry or cherry she won't eat it, but if she gets her hands on the frozen-then-thawed blueberries or cherries she can eat the whole bag in two sittings. I tried to see if she would eat the frozen-then-thawed strawberries but she refused. That left me stuck with three bags of frozen strawberries.
Luckily, there are enough strawberry recipes out there (like these cookies!). I wanted to make something a little different and thought this recipe for Strawberry Popsicles was the perfect thing to fit that desire. I'm not a fan of strawberries but I will tell you that I was a fan of these popsicles. Alex even said they were better than the store-bought popsicles, which is a huge compliment since these are so easy and fun to make.
