When life hands you lemons, you have another option now than just lemonade!

Popsicoholic part 5: minted lemon popsicles.

There is nothing more refreshing than lemon, not just to eat or drink,  i also use lemon scented candles, detergents, shower gel… For me lemon aroma is the most relaxing and refreshing.

My 17 months boy loves lemon too, he eats lemon slices without even blinking his eyes… These lemon popsicles are specially done for him.

Give your lemon popsicles a cool herbal boost using fresh mint leaves. In a food processor mix juice of 2 lemons, juice of 1 lime, 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves.

Pour it in molds and put it in the freezer without inserting the sticks. You will notice that pieces of mint float on top. After one hour take it out and with a knife make up and down movement, to distribute the mint leaves properly. Insert the sticks and return to the fridge to freeze completely, for overnight.

It should make 4 popsicles, again depending on your mold size. To remove the popsicles from the molds, run under warm water until they are easily released.

If you would like to have a mojito on a stick, simply add rum to the mix before freezing and chill out!
