Now or never: there is little, very little to the end of summer but the popsicles always have time to break a hot afternoon or, even in September!
Only a few simple ingredients: fruit, sugar and water.
Test yourself and discover your favorite flavor!
MAKES 6 POPSICLES
READY IN 10′ (+ FREEZING TIME)
4-5 lemons (approx. 150 g of juice)
4,5 oz water
3 tablespoons sugar
6-7 mint leaves
STEP 1: SQUEEZE THE LEMONS
Squeeze the lemons and filter the juice with a strainer.
STEP 2 MAKE THE SYRUP
Place water in a saucepan, add t sugar and gently melt on low heat, stirring with a teaspoon.
STEP 3: MIX THE INGREDIENTS
Now that it’s cold, add the syrup to the lemon juice.
STEP 4: PUT INTO THE MOLDS
– If you are in a hurry go on like this:
pour the mixture into the molds adding a few mint leaves, then put in the freezer and let it freeze for at least 5 hours.
– If, on the other hand, you want to prevent mint from accumulating at the bottom, I ‘m revealing you a little trick:
Pour just a little bit of the mixture into the popsicle molds adding a few mint leaves (if the leaves are large, I recommend you to cut them into strips).
Put in the freezer for approx. 1 hour.
Take out the popsicle molds another time and completely fill dipping the stick too.
Put them back into the freezer and freeze (5 hours will be ready 😉)
TIP: If you don’t like mint, you can omit it and simply make juicy lemon popsicles;
if you want to try an “aperitif-style” popsicle instead, just add a little white rum to step 3… a real delight!
