—Makes five 2-and-1/4-oz. popsicles

—1 1/2 cup VitaFrute Margarita
—1/2 cup Honeydew Juice
—1/3 cup Cucumber Juice
—3 large mint sprigs
—1 tablespoon mint simple syrup (recipe follows)

—Instructions:

1. Place the honeydew and cucumber in a food processor or a blender and process until everything is pureed. Add VitaFrute Margarita and mint syrup and process for another 20-30 seconds to blend well. Pour mixture into popsicles mold.

2. Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.

Mint Syrup
· 1/2 cup water
· 1/2 cups sugar
· 1 cup mint leaves, loosely packed

Instructions:

1. Place sugar and water in a pot over heat until sugar dissolves. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature and place mint leaves in mixture and muddle. Allow mint leaves to steep for 20 minutes. Strain and discard leaves. (Depending on the fineness of the sieve tiny pieces may remain).
