Lemon Cucumber Popsicles are refreshing, zingy and perfect for summer! They're like detox water in a frozen treat and are simple to make and delicious. Only 12 calories per popsicle.
Cucumber popsicles? I see you're a bit unsure. But let me tell you, cucumber adds a really lovely subtle refreshing flavor to the lemony popsicles.
They're basically salad on a stick. Yum.
They're really easy to make and are perfect for hot summer days.
The days have grown hotter. Much hotter. We bask in a British heatwave and moan comfortably about the weather. Martha and the Vandellas' 'Heatwave' soundtracks everyone like a cloak of Motown that adds a few degrees to the high temperatures, but lifts the spirits from sticky sweat to bopping hips.
Ice cream, ice lollies, icy poles, ice pops... we need to eat frozen things. Like cucumber popsicles.
The shops are filled with sickly treats of frozen sugar. What looks like frozen cream is often frozen oil. Unappetising and unhealthy. We yearn for it but it only fills us with rubbish.
So I've made a frozen treat filled with goodness. Frozen salad on a stick. Pureed refreshing cucumber, with lemon juice and coconut water. It comes together in a frozen treat that rehydrates and tastes so fresh and summery.
