Well, it looks like the heat has arrived. With the next few days getting close to 100 degrees (yikes), it’s officially popsicle weather. You can make popsicles out of most anything, and there some of the easiest treats to make in a snap. All you need is a handful of ingredients and a blender or food processor. Lucky for you, we have a good variety of produce that’ll make for the perfect frozen treat.

Urban Roots just brought us cucumbers that fill all your thirst and hunger needs. With their high water content, cucumbers are a great choice for making popsicles. Combine them with some local mint, a little bit of sugar and you’ve got yourself a healthy, refreshing snack.

Happy eating!

Cucumber Mint Popsicles

From: Prudent Baby

1 peeled and seeded cucumber (you seed a cucumber by cutting it in half and scooping the seeds out with a spoon)

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

Handful of mint

2 Tbsp lime juice

Start by making your mint simple syrup. In a pot bring 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and a handful of muddled mint to a boil. Strain out the mint and let cool. Next, combine all the ingredients (cucumber, mint simple syrup, lime juice) in a blender or food processor until evenly mixed. You can throw in a couple more mint leaves if you feel inspired and want to amp up the flavor.

After everything has been mixed, pour into the molds and freeze. If you don’t have popsicle molds, don’t panic. You can get creative and use your ice cube trays for bite sized popsicles or paper cups and wood sticks. Don’t let anything stop you from making popsicles!
