Courtesy of Family Fresh Cooking, try this tasty combo of spa ingredients for a light, sweet, cold and refreshing summer popsicle treat! Not to be confused with Hiccupops.

Lemonade Cucumber Spa Popsicles

makes 3 cups of popsicle mix

NOTES:

  • These spa pops are a healthier & more cost efficient alternative to store bought pops. More eco too, no packaging to toss!
  • As always, use your own taste buds to determine how sweet you want your ice pops.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup julienned seedless Cucumber
  • 1 fresh squeezed Lemon, remove any seeds
  • 2 cups cold Water
  • Natural Sweetener added to taste: use your favorite, I use Stevia. Maple Syrup, Honey & Agave are good too

METHOD

Slice lemon in half and squeeze it over a strainer into 2 cups of cold water. Sweeten lemon water to taste with your favorite sweetener. Fill popsicle molds 2/3 with lemonade. Freeze uncovered for about 1 hour. Take pops out of freezer. Scrape and stir any ice crystals that have formed. Add a spoonful of the julienned cucumber to the pop molds. Be sure to leave a tiny bit of room at the top of your popsicle mold so they don’t overflow when you add the stick. With a popsicle stick or a butter knife, press the cucumber into the mixture so it is evenly distributed. Add your popsicle sticks, freeze pops for another 3-4 hours until solid.
