Summertime calls for refreshing popsicles, and nothing is more refreshing than these Cucumber Lime Popsicles!
As I was browsing an Alton Brown cook book I ran across a popsicle recipe that reminded me of a Bath and Body Works scent. I still buy that Cucumber Melon scent when they have the signature collections sale, because it’s one of my favorites! Anyway, this Cucumber Lime combo could have been a Bath and Body Works scent at one time for all I know. It sure sounds like one!
I was intrigued by the flavor combo, because I love trying new popsicle recipes. Living in Florida we are always looking for something frozen to grab and eat in the middle of the hours we spend out in the pool.
Lately we’ve been enjoying The Best Homemade Fudgesicles and Watermelon Strawberry Popsicles. However, this Cucumber Lime combo, I had to give a try! Doesn’t it sound so summery?! I was surprised that it really tasted good. They are so refreshing! Zack was cutting grass yesterday in the bazillion degree weather. He came inside and needed a pick-me-up. He grabbed one of these, and said that it was just what he needed!
I chose not to peel the cucumber, but you totally can, if you prefer. I was just short on time when I was making these. I sort of spent an entire day making a bunch of things for the blog, and this was last on the list. By that time, I really didn’t feel like taking the extra minute to peel them. Plus I eat cucumbers with their skin on! 🙂 I used plain Greek yogurt here, but a vanilla would also be a great option. I think that honeydew melon would also taste great as an add-in. The ideas on this recipe are endless, so make it your own!
- 1 pound cucumbers, chopped and seeded you can peel these, if you'd like
- 1 lime, zest and the juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- Mix together all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until nothing but juice remains. Pour into popsicle molds, and freeze for 6 hours, or until solid. Overnight is best.
