From childhood we learned that the best remedy for a scorching summer day was a dip in the pool, a run through the sprinkler, or a cool delight to quench dehydration.
While not much has changed, we now know that we don’t want the same water from a pool or hose making up the bulk of our summer treats. With Mavea filtration systems you can be sure that your lemonade, popsicles or just regular H20, are good to go!
Mavea filters and products leave behind only the purest water, free of limescale, chlorine and other taste and smell contaminating substances, guaranteeing all you experience is crisp clean flavor.
Make Mavea your cool-down-companion this summer and pour yourself a glass, add some ice cubes to a cocktail, or split a popsicle with a friend like when you were kids, with confidence you’re getting the freshest taste possible.
Here is one of our favorite recipes from Family Fresh Cooking . . . SO REFRESHING!
Lemonade Cucumber Spa Popsicles Recipe
(Makes 3 cups of popsicle mix)
1 cup julienned seedless Cucumber
1 fresh squeezed Lemon, remove any seeds
2 cups cold, Mavea-filtered water
Natural Sweetener added to taste (I use agave, but maple syrup, honey, or
Stevia are good options too)
1. Slice lemon in half and squeeze it over a strainer into 2 cups of cold water. Sweeten lemon water to taste with your favorite sweetener.
2. Fill popsicle molds or paper cups 2/3 with lemonade. Freeze uncovered for about 1 hour. Take pops out of freezer. Scrape and stir any ice crystals that have formed.
3. Add a spoonful of the julienned cucumber to the pop molds. Be sure to leave a tiny bit of room at the top of your Popsicle mold so they donʼt overflow when you add the stick.
4. With a Popsicle stick or a butter knife, press the cucumber into the mixture so it is evenly distributed. Add your Popsicle sticks, freeze pops for another 3-4 hours until solid.
