We love these bariatric friendly mouth-puckering pops because of their contrasting sensations of sour, sweet and spicy and they are perfect for a healthy summer! Enjoy in confidence!
2 3/4-inch (1 oz) piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
3 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
5 tablespoons lemon juice (from 3 lemons)
Zest of three lemons
10 ultra thin half slices lemon (optional)
*Put the ginger, water, sugar and lemon zest in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved, then remove the pan from heat and let it get to room temperature.
*Pour the mixture through a fine strainer pressing down hard on the ginger with the back of a spoon. Mix in the lemon juice.
*Pour the mixture into your ice pop molds, leaving 1/4 inch at the top to let the mixture expand while it freezes. Place a slice of lemon in each mold if using then insert the sticks and freeze.
