With summer in full swing, we at InStyle are consistently upping our popsicle game to cool down. This week, we're skewing healthy thanks to EatPops's veggie-packed recipe, made with cucumbers, water, agave nectar, and basil, aka the most deliciously refreshing alternative to green juice out there.
"The cucumber and herbs are super-hydrating," says founder Sophie Milrom. "Most recipes call for lots of sugar, but that's the last thing you want when you're in a bikini. Cucumber juice is very detoxifying, slimming, and, most importantly, delicious!" Grab your popsicle maker and read on for the full breakdown.
Yields 10-12 pops
1/2 cup filtered water
1 cup agave nectar
1/3 cup lightly packed basil leaves
1. Use a juicer to juice the cucumbers.
2. Blend cucumber juice with water, agave, and basil until smooth.
3. Pour into ice pop molds and freeze for at least 5 hours—these keep for up to six months.
