In a small saucepan, combine ½ cup sugar, ⅔ cup water, and 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a simmer. Cook until berries start to soften, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour mixture through a fine strainer into a large bowl, pressing the solids with a spoon. Stir in ½ cup lemon juice (from about 2 lemons) and ⅔ cup water.
To finish, pour the mixture into molds and insert sticks. If using cups, freeze until partially frozen and slushy, about 30 minutes, then insert sticks. Freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.
