Orange & Lemon Ice Pops

This is one of the simplest and most thirst-quenching combinations there is and it’s bursting with flavor. The taste is so much better if you choose the freshest sweet-tasting oranges and squeeze them yourself. ­ Cesar and Nadia Roden, authors of Ice Pops!: 50 Delicious Fresh and Fabulous Icy Treats.

Ingredients

  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • ¼ Cup plus 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons water
  • 2 ½ Cups freshly squeezed orange juice (from about 6 oranges)
  • 1/3 freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 3 lemons)

Directions

Put the orange zest, sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the sugar has dissolved, then stir the syrup into the orange and lemon juices.

Pour the mixture into your icepop molds, leaving ¼ inch at the top to allow the mixture to expand when it freezes. Insert the ice pop sticks and freeze.
