Limeade Ice Lollies

As we kiss summer goodbye and welcome all the beauty of autumn, why not take a last tasty bite out of this season by trying these three frozen limeade ice lollies?

The Californian 
(Passion fruit, spicy limeade ice lolly)

This first recipe is like a little trip to California, where you can eat sweet fruits with chilli pepper and lemon. This passion fruit, spicy limeade ice lolly is a beautiful mix of sweet and citrus with a lingering taste of cayenne pepper.

1/3 cup of water
1/3 cup passion fruit juice
The juice of half a lime
Small pinch of cayenne powder
2 big spoons of your sweetener of choice (we like honey and brown sugar)

Forget-me-not 
(Lime and basil ice lolly)

The second one is not your regular limeade, although it is refreshing like a typical limeade it has a twist of basil. The herb adds extra tastiness and makes it lets just say unforgettable.

1/2 cup of water
The juice of one whole lime
2 big spoons of your favorite sweetener
1 full basil stem*

 *You can drain the basil leaves out before freezing it but we like to leave them in.

Herbal Sweet
(Rosemary, mint and kiwi limeade)

Last, but certainly not least, is this sweet, herbal and fruity ice lolly  This one is so full of flavour! The cool, fresh mint, earthy sweetness of the rosemary and the subtle tangy-ness of the kiwi makes it our favourite!

1/2 Cup of Water
The juice of one full lime
1/2 stem of rosemary (cut in small pieces)
A few mint leaves
2 big spoons of your favorite sweetener
1/4 of a kiwi (diced in very small pieces)

When you are making these, keep in mind that your juice should always be a little more sweet than the limeade you normally drink, because when it freezes, the taste changes a bit. We hope you try it and let your palette go on one last refreshing journey this summer!
