We're going to start with 3 cups of cubed cucumber, 1 jalapeno devoid of its hot stuff, 2/3 cup sugar, and 1/3 cup lemon juice.

Step 1

The sugar and lemon juice.


Step 2

Combine everything in your blender.


Step 3

Push the puree through a strainer or two. Really depends on how much effort you want to put it, I strained once and the popsicles were amazing. Obviously sweet, but with a noticeable tang from the peppers. I was highly surprised by the paletas. Very sweet, if you could imagine a jalapeno's taste without the heat.


Step 4

I couldn't find actual popsicle molds, so I used the next best thing: double shot glasses and chopsticks.


Step 5

Throw those bad boys in the freezer and let chill for well over 3 hours. Remember to leave an inch or so for expansion.


Step 6

Serve your Cucumber and Jalapeno Paletas.
