Cucumber Popsicle

The fresh cucumber is a very good source of the vitamin C and the mineral molybdenum. It is also a good source of vitamin A, potassium, manganese, folate, dietary fiber and magnesium.The fruit is commonly harvested while still green, and eaten as a vegetable, whether raw, cooked, or made into pickled cucumbers.Cucumbers are a great digestive aid and have a cleansing effect on the bowel.I have already made fresh juice, milkshake, smoothies out of this versatile fruit, my last but not least trial is cucumber popsicle..quite easy to prepare, a wonderful thristy quencher..prefect when its too hot.. This easy popsicle goes to AFAM:Cucumber guest hosted by Neha of Tasty Recipes, event started by Maheswari...


1no Cucumber
1/4 cup Sugar ( can decrease r increase)
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Lemon juice

Peel the skin of the cucumber, remove the grains n blend it finely in a food processor r mixie with sugar, salt n lemon juice... dont add water at all , if u want to strain the juice u can do, else can leave them with cucumber pulps..pour the cucumber juice in tumblers r in kulfi moulds with popsicle sticks...keep overnite r 5-6 hours in the freezer..

  21. That's definitely an interesting recipe Priya. We usually grind cucumber with green chili and mix it with buttermilk as a thirst quencher for summer. But this is totally amazing.
