Cucumber, Mint + Lime Ice Blocks

With just a handful of simple ingredients, you can make these flavour-packed ice blocks that scream of sunshine and good times.

Makes 10–12

 

Zest of 4–5 limes, plus juice (1/2 cup)

2 cups water

½ cup raw caster sugar

handful mint leaves

1 medium telegraph cucumber, roughly chopped

 

Finely grate the zest of the limes and place into a saucepan with water, sugar and mint. Bring to the boil, reduce to a simmer and cook 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside until cold. Place chopped cucumber into a blender along with the lime juice, strain lime/mint syrup (discard solids) and add to the blender. Blend on high until smooth. Strain mixture through a fine sieve and pour into ice block moulds. Freeze for 2 hours before adding wooden ice block sticks and freezing for a further 4 hours or until frozen. Run moulds briefly under warm water to help release ice blocks.
