Refreshing Pineapple-Mint Popsicles

Refreshing Pineapple-Mint Popsicles

Author Shani - Lemon Tree Nutrition
Popsicles can definitely be crowned as one of the summer’s best treats. They are sweet, refreshing and cooling. When I thought about a recipe to emphasize the cooling effect, I knew I had to incorporate some mint leaves. For a bright and zesty colour, I decided to combine it with pineapple. As both pineapple and mint can help with digestion, this popsicle is literally gut-friendly!
