Yum Alert: Lemonade Cucumber Spa Popsicles
I never thought about mixing cucumber and lemon together, but after seeing this recipe for lemonade cucumber pops, I just may have to try it! And the kid looks like he loves them, too! Image and recipe via Family Fresh Cooking.
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
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.
