Ginger Limeade Popsicles

Serves: 8
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


5 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 ounces fresh ginger, peeled
1 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 10 to 12 limes)


In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water and sugar over medium heat. Simmer until sugar dissolves completely, then cool to room temperature.

While the sugar mixture is cooling, make the ginger juice. Using a microplane, finely grate the ginger. Collect the resulting pulp and press through a mesh strainer to extract the juice.

In a large pitcher, whisk together remaining water, sugar mixture, lime and ginger juices. Fill 8-ounce paper cups three-quarters full of limeade. Alternatively, if using a popsicle mold, fill to the top. Freeze until partially set, 2 hours, then insert wooden popsicle sticks upright into the center of the popsicle. Freeze until solid, 6 hours. Serve.
