Laura Ann’s Lo-Fi Strawberry Artisan Fruit Spread (or your favorite berry flavored Laura Ann's Jams)
1 large English hothouse cucumber, peeled and cut into pieces¼ cup fresh lime juice and the zest
You will need ice pop molds, a high-powered blender and a fine-mesh sieve.
If you don’t have ice-pop molds, try using paper cups and popsicle sticks. You can also make ice cubes that are terrific in plain soda water

- In a high-powered blender, purée the cucumber pieces with lime juice and zest, until smooth.
- Strain the cucumber purée through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup and fill each of the molds.
