01 Jul Cucumber Mint Popsicles
It’s officially summer! This week’s recipe is inspired by the heat and sunshine that comes with this season. We started to get cucumbers in our shares last week, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing them off and on over the coming months. Cucumbers are easy to use and incorporate into salads or simply slice and eat as a snack. This week’s recipe showcases cucumbers in a very different way…frozen popsicles!
¾ cup honey
½ cup water
½ cup mint, chopped (I used the mojito mint from the herb gardens at the farm)
2 cups cucumber, chopped and NOT peeled
½ cup lime juice
3 Tbsp lime zest, divided
