Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Trim cucumbers and cut into 4-inch lengths. Use a vegetable peeler to cut 18 strips of cucumber peel. Press 3 strips each to the insides of six 3-ounce freezer-pop molds.
  2. Remove any remaining peel, then seed and chop the cucumbers to get 6 cups (reserve any remaining cucumber for another use). Combine the chopped cucumber, lemon juice, jalapeño, honey and salt in a blender. Puree. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a medium bowl, pressing on the solids to yield as much juice as possible. (Discard solids.) Divide the mixture among the prepared molds and insert sticks.
  3. Freeze until solid, about 6 hours.
  • To make ahead: Freeze for up to 3 weeks.
  • Equipment: Six 3-oz. freezer-pop molds
