Forget kale. Forget fresh flowers. Forget whole grain bread. Last weekend at the farmer’s market, I saw all these kids walking around with delicious-looking popsicles and I knew that I needed one immediately. I searched for a while and finally spotted the popsicle cart conveniently hidden behind a long line of children. Typical. I waited my turn patiently and finally bought what was actually the most delicious thing in the entire world: a strawberry honey pop.  
 The girls selling them (from  3 Porch Farm ) saw my enthusiasm and said “they’re so good, right?! And they’re made with just strawberries and honey.”  
 Naturally, I decided that I needed to be able to make these every day of my life, so I bought some strawberries and got to work. Luckily, I had impulse-bought some nifty popsicle trays a while ago at Target so all I needed to do was find an acceptable recipe. After some very scientific internet research and a survey of my honey arsenal, here’s what I came up with:  
    3 cups of hulled strawberries (fresh or frozen)   
   ½ cup of honey (I used key lime honey my mom brought me from Florida mmm)    
   3 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice    
    Put it all in a blender, fill the tray, and wait roughly 4 hours! It makes about 5-6 popsicles depending on your tray!    
  These were seriously so easy and so delicious— the hardest part was waiting for them to freeze. And, since they’re made of all good stuff, I justified eating them for breakfast, obviously.   I ate it so quickly, I didn’t even get to use the handy straw feature on the popsicle stick.   
  Also, wear your retainers, kids. My bite pattern is looking crazy…
