This is a very simple recipe to make super delicious Lemon Ice popsicles at home. These popsicles have been made with lemon juice, mint leaves, Sugar and water and kept in the freezer overnight in the popsicle mould.
Please see the following steps on how to make the Lemon Ice Popsicles

Step 3: Extract Mint Juice
- In a mixer grinder jar, add the handful of mint leaves
- Add little amount of water and crush to a fine paste
- Filter out the mint juice and discard the remains
Step 4: Make the Lemon Mix
- In a bowl take enough water required for the six pops in the mould
- Add the sugar to water and stir till sugar dissolves in it
- Now add the lemon juice and mint juice to the sugar water

Step 5: Fill and Freeze the Popsicles

With the aroma of mint and lemon, this tastes so good and all six pops disappeared in a moment. There is more demand for my Lemon Ice Popsicles and I am asked to make it at least once in a week during summer months.
