The past few weeks I have eaten like a pig. A total pig. Steak and Shake, Mexican, pho, beer, a Brazilian steakhouse, delicious brunch, Southern food, a huge brownie with hot fudge and ice cream. Basically, if it was offered to me, I said yes. No big deal, right? Until I put on my jeans. Holy smokes! Those calories have caught up with me. It makes sense. One cannot consume endlessly without consequences. But I am not giving up my flavor. Sometimes I just want a pop of flavor without a load of calories. These popsicles are perfect for that. So delicious!
Lime and Ginger Popsicles
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- Zest and juice of 2 limes
- 10 cm piece of ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
In a small saucepan, combine the ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and allow to cool to room temperature. With a slotted spoon, remove the chunks of ginger. Pour the mixture evenly into your popsicle molds. I divided mine evenly between 6 molds and then topped them off with more water. Stir each mold to be sure the syrup is evenly mixed in. Freeze until solid. Enjoy!!!
