Cucumber Lime Pops

IMG_8334 An interesting side effect of having the Zoku around is that even my 3-year-old is getting the experimental recipe ideas.

After we made these cucumber lime popsicles she said, “We should make avocado popsicles.” I think that’s a great idea. I’m working on that one next.

We’ve been making tons of popsicles around here and I think these were my favorite so far.

Amaya got to drink the leftover juice from these and she said, “This is my favoritest juice ever, Mama.” It really makes a lovely summer drink, too, if you are not so into popsicles. I’m not really a juice in the fridge kind of person. I don’t buy apple juice, ever, unless I need it for a recipe. In my house we drink water. So if we want juice, generally, we make it ourselves, and it’s usually a little watered down to avoid too much sugar. It helps that we live in Hawaii and foraging for guava and lilikoi (passion fruit) in the mountains is fun.

For popsicles, though, you want your drink a little stronger. It’s okay, since you’re really only consuming about a 1/4 C of juice when you eat a popsicle.

(Except for the fact that we ate about 3 popsicles each. They were too good.)

Cucumber Lime Pops (makes about 4 popsicles)

  • 1 C cold water
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1/2 peeled cucumber (about 1/4C-1/3C—exact measurements unnecessary)
  • juice of 1 lime, about 2 T
  1. Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until mixed, just a few seconds.
  2. NOTE: if you are making this just to drink as juice, double, triple, quadruple the recipe as needed, but also substitute some of the cold water for ice. It makes a nice frothy, icy, drink.
  3. Pour into popsicle molds and enjoy.

I've been loving the zoku thank you a million times for telling me about it and convincing me that I needed one too. Avacado pops the the most famous kind of pops in Brazil, seriously. Make it with sweatened condensed milk.

What a creative and refreshing summer popsicle. We also don't drink much juice, these sound perfect! Such a pretty color.

Mariko said...

I will try the sweetened condensed milk. Good idea.
Thanks Marla! I love green popsicles.

Yum! I'm probably the only one in the house that will eat them, I think I'll be making these for myself! Maybe it'll get my almost 3 year old to like cucumbers...

Mariko said...

Ann, promise, they won't hardly be able to tell there are cucumbers in there. It's so subtle. You don't have to tell them about it... :)
