My month of October is pretty insane this year. It’s insane most years, but this year doubly so because it’s my 30th birthday AND my 1 year anniversary AND my annual Halloween party. Plus I have to fly to New York for work for a few days.
So, given all the craziness of this month, instead of starting a new cookbook I’m going to be making all of the remaining recipes from The Star Wars Cookbook, as well as recipes from the Halloween section of The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays cookbook.
Jedi Juice Pops
These are SOOOO easy to make, and went over very well with my husband.
There’s an option of using either fresh or frozen strawberries, but I would recommend using fresh. That way, if needed, you can cut the strawberry a bit to fit within the ice cube tray mold.
They also give you an option when it comes to fruit juice – orange, cranberry, apple, fruit punch, or lemonade. I decided on lemonade, since I thought it would go the best with strawberries, and I know my husband loves lemonade.
First, put strawberries in each cup of the ice cube tray. Then pour lemonade on top and freeze for a couple of hours. Then add a toothpick or popsicle stick to each strawberry, and pop back in the freezer.
These were good, especially the lemonade! The toothpick was a bit awkward, though, and you’re pretty much forced to eat the strawberry last since it’s the toughest part to break into.
My husband gives these a full 10/10.
These are incredibly simple to make, and wouldn’t be difficult for kids at all.
All you need are some strawberries and juice, and you’ll probably have leftovers of both for a snack later!
