Once you've discovered how easy it is to make popsicles using fresh fruit and basil in this dessert, you'll want to make them all the time! This version is created with fresh raspberries, but you can choose any favorite fruit that's in season. If you'd prefer to use strawberries instead of raspberries, please use my Green Tea Strawberry Basil Popsicle recipe.
