This lemon-lime electrolyte Popsicle recipe saved my damned life last week!
We live in Arizona, and this summer is brutal. We’re going on 50 days of over 100-degree temps and last week our central air conditioning went out!
Yup. During an excessive heat warning, temps of 116-122 degrees, the fan that cools the condenser blew apart and the unit was unable to cool because the condenser kept shutting off because it was overheating.
For three days it was literally over 100 degrees inside our home. Thank the baby cheeses, one of our friends happened to have a portable air conditioning unit that they let us borrow. We at least had one cool room downstairs that we could take reprieve in and sleep in.
Even our cats were panting! Have you ever seen a cat pant? It’s a rare occurance.
Anyway, this lemon-lime electrolyte popsicle recipe was born out of desperation to stay cool and hydrated. I used lemonade flavored Ultima Refresher powder, you can obviously use any flavor or brand of electrolyte powder you would like. I really like Ultima’s orange and grape flavors as well!
- 6 Cups Cold Water
- 6 Scoops Lemonade Ultima Refresher
- 1 Cup Lime Juice
- Mix ingredients in a pitcher until electrolyte powder is dissolved.
- Pour liquid into popsicle molds.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours and enjoy!
