Beat the heat with this popsicle recipe from our registered dietitian, Megan Sewards! This recipe is also a good way to combat any nausea experienced during treatment. Check it out below!
- 3 1/2 cups water (can use an electrolyte enhanced water)
- 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
- 2/3 cup honey
- 5 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 slices of lemon, thinly sliced and cut in half
- Put the water and ginger in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.
- Add the honey and simmer for another 1 – 2 minutes until the honey is dissolved.
- Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.
- Pour the mixture into a bowl through a fine strainer pressing down hard on the ginger with the back of a spoon.
- Stir in the lemon juice.
- Pour the mixture into your ice popsicle molds. Leave about 1/4 inch at the top to leave room for the stick and the popsicles will expand a bit as they freeze.
- Place a 1/2 slice of lemon in each mold.
- Place the lid on the mold and place in the freezer for about 15 – 20 minutes.
- Remove from the freezer and add the sticks to the popsicles and freeze until solid.
- Let the popsicles sit at room temperature for a few minutes to loosen them up so they can easily be removed from the molds.
