Summer’s been a scorcher!
If you’re health conscious like me, just any old thirst-quencher isn’t going to do. Don’t waste your chill-time searching. DIY instead!
This Ginger Cantaloupe Popsicle recipe, sent to us this week from sustainable meal delivery company Terra’s Kitchen is a healthy, refreshing, fruit-filled treat and guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. The best part is that these icy snacks are guilt-free! And bonus, we found a super recommendation for BPA-free popsicle molds.
What you need:
3 slices of fresh ginger
1/4 cup sugar (You can use any sugar substitute as long as it can melt)
1 ripe cantaloupe
Sliced strawberries (optional)
Popsicle forms and popsicle sticks
What to do:
- In a small sauce pan, add the sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat. Cook just until the sugar has melted. Remove from heat and drop in ginger. Set aside until cooled. (Remove ginger when ready to use!)
- Slice cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Spoon cantaloupe flesh into a blender. Blend until smooth.
- Add just enough of the cooled ginger syrup to sweeten as desired. Save the remaining syrup for another use.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. For a variation, push a few sliced strawberries down into the popsicle molds before freezing.
