That's the effect of this Popsicle. Refreshing, instantly cooling and utterly delicious. Plus it takes barely anytime to put together - slice the fruits, make a glass of slightly concentrated lemonade and pour into the Popsicle mould. That's really it.
I have to be honest here, I've been inspired by a number of popsicle pictures I see on Pinterest. And while these aren't as transparent as I'd have liked them to be, I've figured out what to do. The thing is if you boil your water, let it cool and then make your concoction, it'll result in a more transparent Popsicle versus one that is straight made from cold water. I'm going to try that the next time.
I don't know if you guys have ever eaten this ice lolly called Limchu while growing up - it was a green coloured lemon flavoured lolly - but it was my favourite thing ever. Available for five rupees, it was all I ever wanted when I walked back home from school in the heat.
That's the taste I wanted to recreate for my first ice lollies of the season. So lemon it was. I used 3 lemons but feel free to adjust according to your taste and Popsicle mould. And use whatever fruit you'd like, the more the merrier.
