Besides tasting great, these real fruit popsicles are rich with nutritional benefits.  

LEMON GINGER BENEFITS

Lemons: Lemons are a rich source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient that gives a boost to our immune system.  They also help maintain the pH level in our bodies and helps to detox our system by flushing out toxins. 

Ginger:  The ginger in these lemon popsicle provide anti-inflammatory and immune boosting benefits, plus it’s good for relieving nausea, indigestion and fighting infection.

BENEFITS OF HONEY

Honey:  Honey offers antibacterial and antioxidant benefits.  In general, the darker the honey, the better its antibacterial and antioxidant power.  A little honey can help you get a good night’s sleep.  It also helps to ease coughs.  Certain studies suggest that honey beats out certain over-the-counter common cold symptom meds containing dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) and diphenhydramine (an antihistamine).

LEMON POPSICLE RECIPE

These fruit ice pops require only 4 ingredients – lemons, ginger, honey and water.

  • 3 1/2 cups water (I used Smartwater)
  • 1-inch piece of ginger,  peeled and chopped
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 slices of lemon, thinly sliced and cut in half

HOW TO MAKE FRUIT POPSICLES

These healthy popsicles come together in about 10 minutes, but then they’ll need to sit in the freezer for several hours.

  1. Put the water and ginger in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  2. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl through a fine strainer pressing down hard on the ginger with the back of a spoon.
  4. Stir in the lemon juice and the honey and stir until the honey has dissolved.
  5. Place a 1/2 slice of lemon in each mold.
  6. Pour the mixture into your ice popsicle molds, leaving a little room for the stick (the popsicles will expand a bit as they freeze).
  7. Place the lid on the mold and place in the freezer for about 15 – 20 minutes.
  8. Remove from the freezer and add the sticks to the popsicles and freeze until solid.
  9. Let the popsicles sit at room temperature for a few minutes to loosen them up so they can easily be removed from the molds.
