Lime, Mint and Cucumber Noodle Ice Popsicles

Originally, I intended for this post to be about adult popsicles, which have become all the rage. There’s actually this hotel called The Conrad in lower Manhattan and at their rooftop bar (cutely called Loopy Doopy), they serve prosecco and ice pops.

I mean, how cool is New York?

Despite my intentions, I ended up with a cool, refreshing way to spruce up your hydration: spiralized water pops!

Lime, Mint and Cucumber Noodle Ice Popsicles

I’m always asking for limes with my water at restaurants and a day rarely passes when I don’t make myself a hot water with lemon. Whenever I see a water cooler at a spa or gym that’s filled with fruit or veggie infused water, I do a little dance and help myself to some.

Why drink regular ice water when you can have it infused with detoxifying fruits and veggies that taste tangy and even more fresh?

Drinking loads of water is one of my top health tips, for those of you on a fit journey. I just posted up a picture of my weight loss Instagram account (@GetInspiralized), showing that I’ve officially lost 20 pounds – all from exercising and eating Inspiralized (I wanted to practice what I was preaching!)

Honestly, I couldn’t have done it without water. Most of the time when you feel hungry, you’re really thirsty and dehydrated. Keeping yourself hydrated keeps everything metabolizing properly and helps flush out those toxins that are bogging you down. Best part? It clears your skin up!

For many people, drinking plain old water doesn’t come as easily. That’s where these ice pops come in! By adding cucumber noodles, mint and lime to your water, you’re hydrating yourself while packing in some nutrients (hello Vitamin C!)

These pops are the perfect summertime treat for your kids – the lime juice is tangy and almost sweet and the cucumber noodles harden when frozen and can be bitten right into.

Lu tried one and thought it was dessert! It’s a great after-dinner treat to suck on instead of reaching for those cookies. Although, these funfetti biscotti are calling my name – once I finish the photography for my cookbook (I want to look my best!), I’m going to treat myself with those.

Honestly, don’t even think about it and prepare these, pop them in the fridge and all week you’ll have a hydrating, refreshing and tasty treat to quench those snack urges at night!

If you want to buy the ice pop molds I used, you can find them here.

Talk about the perfect way to cool down and stay hydrated!
Lorna R. says:
Great idea! This sparks so many creative ways i can utilize different veggies & fruit & herbs for ice pops! You can have sweet or tart or even add coloring. & what a way to trick the kids (if/when i have any - i do have neices & nephews) into thinking they are having dessert- yet its a healthy faux-dessert or snack. Ali's always the most inventive chef!!
Thank you very much, Lorna!!

whenever I hit a breakfast rut, I always make potato hashes. 🥔🍳 they're easy to make, keep you full until lunch, and I usually have all of the ingredients on hand: potatoes, garlic, a can of beans, eggs, and some sort of vegetable (here, I used brussels sprouts - but you could use bell peppers, finely chopped broccoli, etc!) what do you make when you're in a breakfast rut? 🤔⁣

SMOKY WHITE BEAN AND BRUSSELS SPROUTS POTATO HASH 👇🏼👇🏼⁣
serves 3-4⁣

INGREDIENTS⁣
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil⁣
1 russet potato, small cubed⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 large garlic clove, minced⁣
12 ounces shredded Brussels sprouts⁣
1 (15oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1/8 teaspoon chili powder⁣
vegetable broth, as needed (or water, if you don’t have broth on hand)⁣
4 eggs for frying (if desired)⁣

DIRECTIONSs⁣
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once heated, add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper, and let cook until almost fork tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, Brussels sprouts and white beans, stir together, and season with smoked paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until sprouts are browned and potatoes are completely fork tender, about 10 more minutes, adding vegetable broth by the tablespoon as the vegetables dry out and potentially stick to the bottom of the pan.⁣

Meanwhile, fry four eggs in a large skillet or in batches. Divide the hash onto plates and top with the fried eggs. Serve with extra cracked pepper.⁣
