Who says popsicles are only for kids? Grown-ups can enjoy them too with this healthy Ginger-Cantaloupe Popsicles recipe! These cool treats will help you beat the heat during the summer months.

 

What you need:

3 slices of fresh ginger

1/4 cup sugar

1 ripe cantaloupe

Sliced strawberries (optional)

Popsicle forms and popsicle sticks

 

What to do:

  1. 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!)
  2. Slice cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Spoon cantaloupe flesh into a blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add just enough of the cooled ginger syrup to sweeten as desired. Save the remaining syrup for another use.
  4. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. For a variation, push a few sliced strawberries down into the popsicle molds before freezing.
