Sweet Lime Popsicles / Sweet Lime Ice Pops

Sweet lime or mosambi is a humble fruit that is available almost throughout the year and is less expensive when compared to lot other fruits. 

The juice of this fruit is so light and refreshing that I always prefer drinking it when I go out in the scorching sun. When Chennai never gets its winter and is hot all the time, this popsicle is for sure a delicacy by itself for treating yourself in the mid afternoon. 

I picked up this fun popsicle mould one fine day last year at Currimbhoys and also made a mango yoghurt popsicle which was so very yummy that it dint even last long for me to blog it. This year made it a point to make something and post. The most interesting thing about this popsicle mould is that the melted juice of the pops doesn't drip out, instead is collected in base itself which can be suck through the straw on the side!!! Interesting isn't it??!!!

Squeeze the juice of sweet lime and collect it in bowl. 

Grind ginger and some water in a mixer and strain it to get the juice of ginger. 

Mix sweet lime juice along with ginger juice and honey. Try tasting and add more honey if required. 

Slice the sweet lime into thin wedges and place them into the mould on one side of the wall and then pour the juice into it. Close and freeze it for at least 4 hours. 

Serve and slurp :)

Adding a wedge of the fruit to the popsicle makes it look attractive and gives it a body and also the zest of the fruit would make the popsicle delicious. 

Remove the mould from freezer just few mins before serving and dip the mould in warm water which will help loosen the popsicle and easy to remove.
