Cucumber Mojito Popsicles (Kid-Friendly)!

Hot weather makes me want cool treats. I have always loved a good popsicle so I decided to break out my under-utilized ZokuPop maker! I searched my fridge and the internet and found this recipe for awesome summer popsicles!

 

The ingreendients: water, limes, cucumbers, mint, and sugar! If you wanted to make these really fun (for adults only), I think you could add a little rum to the mix!!

I muddled the mint in the sugar to release all the oils!

I used the sugar and mint mixture to make a simple syrup (with water) but only strained half of the mint because I like the texture.

While the syrup was reducing, I pureed the cucumbers in the blender.

After I mixed all the ingredients, I put them in my pop maker for about 8-9 minutes!
