  • 1 pound of ripe organic strawberries
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup lightly packed Thai lemon basil or other basil


  • Heat sugar and water together in a saucepan over medium high heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add the basil and steep for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile stem and halve strawberries and puree in a blender or food processor. Stir in 1/2-3/4 cup basil simple syrup (strained to remove the basil), to taste.
  • Pour into pop molds and freeze for 20 minutes. Insert sticks and freeze until solid, at least 3 hours.
