 Lemon and Ginger Ice Pops – keep cool this summer with these mouth-puckering pops!

Keep cool this summer with these mouth-puckering pops! If you love contrasting sensations of sour, sweet and spicy, you’ll love these ice pops. My five year old is a lemon lover and she really enjoyed them, but found the ginger a little too spicy for her palette so next time I make them I may do half without, but my husband loved these and asked me to make them again.

These are slightly adapted from the Ice Pops! Cookbook, lots of fun ideas for the summer in this book. I followed the recipe exact but cut back on the sugar a little. You could honestly sweeten them with whatever you normally use, a blend of sugar and stevia would work too.

To make these pops I used my freezer pop maker from Progressive, it’s my favorite but any freezer pop maker will work. Hope you enjoy and keep cool!

  3. Is there any reason this is not listed as GF, KF, etc?

  4. Can these be made with honey and eliminate the sugar altogether?

  13. where do you buy ice pop molds and sticks

  14. Just wondering whether these Popsicles freeze using Stevia.

  15. My favorite cocktail is LBG, lemon, basil, ginger, and vodka. I am going to try these with some added basil.

  16. Would it work to use all Stevia? Thanks!

  17. Mmm ginger and lemon is such a fantastic combination, these look gorgeous with the lemon slices in them 😀 Thanks for sharing! x

  18. Hi Gina,

    I have this popsicle maker, too! I find it tricky to get one popsicle out (have to run it under warm water to loosen), and then trying to get the lid back on top by fitting all the sticks back into the holes. Super annoying. Do you have any tips?

    Thanks!

  19. Grown up pops! What a lovely concept!

  20. Those look amazing. Now that's a tasty summer treat!

  21. It would be OK to leave the ginger out?

  22. That sounds delicious!! Cant wait to try it! And Im making the cherry lime pops today as well!
