CucumberMintPops

The beauty of making ice pops yourself is that you can use nearly any ingredients that you desire. Fresh cucumbers and mint provide for a surprising flavor combination that is made more ‘adult’ with the addition of a bit of tequila.

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 2 limes, freshly squeezed
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 mint leaves (optional)
  • 1 tsp tequila per popsicle (optional)

Make a simple syrup: In a medium saucepan combine the sugar and water. Over a low heat allow the sugar to melt, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.

Make the cucumber mixture: Blend cucumber, lime juice, mint leaves, and simple syrup and puree until smooth,

Assemble and freeze.

Note: If using a Zoku Quick Pop Maker — pour 3 teaspoons of tequila into the Zoku Pour Cup, and them oiur the cucumber mixture in to measure 3 popsicles. Mix well. Using the Zoku Fruit Wand, apply wet mint leaves to the side of the all of the pop maker molds and a cucumber slice on the opposite side. Insert sticks and pour the cucumber mixture until you reach the fill line. Let freeze completely, then remove the pops with the Super Tool and enjoy.
