I love to make frozen treats…popsicles, in fact. I am constantly inspired by amazing recipes all over the internet and take them back to my kitchen to experiment and try to make them my own. When I read this recipe online from Wanna Come With, I just had to put my own unique mark on it. This particular recipe was a hit at one of my most recent popsicle parties. Even if the warm summer months are gone, these pops make an excellent sweet treat for any party (or for yourself) as an alternative to buying pops in the grocery store!
Makes approximately 10 pops.
- Cucumber Lime Mint Pops
- 2 English (seedless) cucumbers, peeled
- 3-4 limes, juiced
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- Handful of mint
- Combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir briefly for a couple minutes until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. (you can always use less sugar if you want) You now have simple syrup.
- Combine the cucumber, lime juice, mint leaves, and simple syrup into a blender and blend until smooth. Feel free to adjust with more lime juice or mint (I love mint so I used 2 handfuls) to your taste, and blend again.
- Pour into popsicle mold. A funnel makes this process really easy! Fill to the top and insert your wooden popsicle sticks. Freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight. To remove pops, run mold under warm water for a few seconds and then wiggle these refreshing treats loose!
