Ingredients

  • 550 ml drinking water
  • 200 g sugar
  • 155 ml lemon juice strained

Instructions

  • Measure water into a measuring jug.
  • Pour half of the water into a medium-sized pot. Add sugar into the pot and turn on the heat to a low flame.
  • Stir to dissolve the sugar. Turn of the heat and add the remaining water. Set aside.
  • Roll lemons on your kitchen counter to soften the pulp inside. Cut each lemon into 2 and squeeze the juice. Strain to remove pulps and seeds and measure.
  • Add the measured lemon juice into the sugar syrup solution and mix well.
  • Pour the lemonade solution into prepared popsicle molds. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours. Overnight freezing is better.
  • To unmold the popsicles, dip the mold in a pot filled with water. The water level should not be above the mold cover, to avoid water getting into the frozen popsicles.
  • Leave the mold in the water for about 30 seconds. Remove the popsicles by holding the stick and pulling them upwards, vertically. Keep the mold in the water a little longer if the popsicles are still stuck to the mold.

Notes

Optional:
  • If you prefer the popsicles to be smooth and of a sorbet-like consistency with finer ice particles (instead of frozen to an ice block consistency), freeze the lemonade solution in 2 stages.
  • In the first stage, churn the lemonade solution in an ice cream maker until the ice particles have formed (but not fully frozen). Pour the semi-frozen solution into the popsicle molds and proceed with the second stage freezing for at least 4 to 6 hours before unmolding and serving.
  • Without an ice machine, pour the lemonade solution into a freezer-safe container and freeze for about 3 to 4 hours. Use a fork to break the ice particles that have formed or transfer that almost frozen solution into a blender and blend for a few seconds until the ice is all squashed to a smoothie-like consistency. Pour the solution back into the popsicle mold and continue to freeze for at least 4 to 6 hours before unmolding and consuming.
