Cucumber Spa Popsicles


One of my favorite things about spas is cucumber infused water! Cucumbers have a high water content and are moist and help cool you in the summertime. I packed some in my bag for the beachDid you know that kiwi has more potassium than a banana, one kiwi has more Vitamin C than an orange, contains tons of fiber, and enhances energy levels too. Kiwis are my mother's favorite fruit and I used them in my chia pudding recipe. These popsicles are healthier and cheaper than store bought popsicles, plus I use reusable sticks! The food for these 5 popcicles cost me only $2.48 plus the sugar (I use Ideal no calorie sugar). You should always taste the mixture as you go to determine how sweet you want yours. I've made these a second time adding a cup of green grapes instead of water and lemon juice and it was as sweet as candy!

ps you could add some Moscato to these popsicles if you wanted, just saying...
