A refreshing and amazing coconut cucumber limeade ice pops that are a perfect summer treat!
For some reason, this summer I have been craving lemonade and limeade or anything that is refreshing. It hasn’t been a super-hot summer here at all. I would say a very mild one, which doesn’t happen very often.
At our local grocery store they were having a fantastic sale on limes and cucumbers. We always try to stock-up on items like that when they go on sale. Do you?
Speaking of limes, in our area the price of limes shot up like crazy for cinco de mayo. I couldn’t believe it! Did that happen in your area as well or we just the unlucky ones?
I was at first thinking of making a cucumber limeade drink, but I thought adding coconut water and making them into ice pops would be perfect!
When we first got married back in April of 2013, we purchased a lot of items at Ikea and I completely forget we purchased these cute little ice pop containers. I missed out on making ice pops the beginning of summer, so I think I will have to make it up.
When usually means, we are having ice pops for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 🙂
- Combine the coconut water and granulated sugar, or any kind of sweetener you prefer, in a large pot and turn the stove to low-to-medium heat. Keep stirring until all of the granulated sugar has melted. Set aside.
- Juice both of your limes and dice the cucumber into chunks.
- Combine the sweetened coconut water, lime juice, and cucumber chunks into a large blender and blend until the cucumbers are pureed.
- Strain the mixture and pour into ice pop molds. Freeze for at least 6 hours, overnight is best.
