Ice lollies are great, they are portable, frozen and though cucumber may be surprising in a sweet recipe, give it a go, it is refreshing and delicious.

  • 1 Large (English) cucumber, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves
  • 120ml (½ cup) light agave syrup (nectar)
  • 160ml (2/3 cup)lime juice
  • 480 ml (2 cups) water

Place the cucumbers and mint in a small food processor and process until smooth.

Using a fine sieve, strain the mixture and discard the pulp to create approximately ¼ cup (60ml) of liquid. Place the liquid in a medium jug, add the agave, lime juice, and water and whisk to combine.

Divide the mixture between 8 x ⅓ cup-capacity (80ml) ice lolly moulds. Insert ice lolly sticks and freeze for a 3–4 hours or until frozen. Makes 8.
