Take a break from the heat with refreshing Raspberry-Mint Ice Pops.
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup mint leaves
4 cups raspberries
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
How to Make It
Combine sugar, 1/4 cup water, and mint in a small saucepan over medium heat; cook 4 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Let stand 30 minutes. Strain through a sieve over a bowl; discard solids.
Combine mint syrup, berries, and juice in a blender; process until smooth.
Divide mixture evenly among 9 (4-ounce) ice-pop molds. Top with lid; insert craft sticks. Freeze pops overnight or until set.
My kids (5 and 7) ate these but weren't crazy about them. I do not like things heavily sweetened at all, but these were much more tart than sweet, so I think it would be better without the lemon juice. Also, the lemon juice overshadowed the mint, which I could not taste at all.
