Lime Ice Pops

Our daughter loves everything sour and these definitely pass her test. These aren’t for everyone but for the true lime lovers.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup simple syrup
  • The zest of 1 lime, cut in strips
  • 2/3 cup fresh squeezed juice lime juice (about 3-5 limes)
  • 1.5 cup water

Directions

  1. Add the lime zest to the simple syrup (to make simple syrup, combine 2/3 cup of water with 2/3 cup of sugar) and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Strain into a measuring pitcher.
  2. Squeeze the juice from the limes. You should have approximately 2/3 cup of juice. Strain and combine with the lime infused simple syrup.
  3. Add water to the mixture until the total amount is 3 cups (adding about 1.5 cup of water). Mix well.
  4. Pour the mixture into the moulds, allowing for some room the expansion. Allow the ice pops to start freezing, about 50 minutes before adding the popsicle sticks.
  5. Freeze for 6 to 8 hours.
