I love  anything travel. Most travel these days for me is work based. The itinerary usually has something to do with learning all kinds of neat stuff for my blog.

No matter what kind of trip I am on I embrace the opportunity to blog about it. Wouldn’t we all love a vacation to a spa somewhere remote and beautiful? I would. Even though I would be “relaxing” I would still be blogging.

I covet deep tissue massages, facials and sunrise yoga classes.

Hold on, my fantasy continues…..how about spa cuisine made for me by a creative chef using all locally sourced organic produce.

The spa grounds would be dotted with grazing Jersey cows. The fresh milk and cream would then be offered to me by a gorgeous spa boy……

OK, I just woke up from that dream. Since I am not heading off to a spa anytime soon, I brought the spa to me.

You know that yummy cucumber-lemon water that fancy health clubs and spas have?

Here is that quenching water sweetened and frozen into pop form. Just close your eyes and pretend for one blissful moment that you are at the spa.

This recipe also qualifies for Summer Fest.  I have been inspired by this lively group to create all kinds of recipes using summer’s finest fruits and veggies.

In my last post I shared a favorite zucchini salad. In this post I give you sweet. The two featured vegetables of the week are cucumber and zucchini.

I had fun going savory with the zucchini and I need something sweet for dessert. I like to keep things light.

These fruity, citrus pops are the great finale to any meal. They are great for steamy days at the pool or just lounging in your favorite chair dreaming about the spa.

    These sound delicious and look beautiful too! I love cucumber water, so I can imagine these would be like giving yourself a taste of spa treatment. There’s something about the subtlety of the cucumber that just turns water into a complete refresher.

    That looks really pretty! I think my kids are going to love it. For the first time, I think they’ll be having something green without any complains, lol! They really love lemonade and the idea of making it into popsicles is just genous! lol!

    I’m SO with you on the fantasy appeal of some spa time. I can think of no vacation I would like more than to kick back, be hand fed hyper-healthy food, and be facial-ed, massaged, and generally pampered for a couple of weeks. I love your can do spirit about bringing the spa home with these neat pops. What a super idea!

    Posted at 11:13h, 04 August

    Those look beautiful!! Going to head to the farmers’ market tomorrow and will stock up on cukes. If they are anything as good as your last popsicle recipe (and how can they be anything but?!), I will be a very happy girl.

    I once went to Enchantment…long long ago…ah, life before children. A request for your next recipe: a popsicle that can give you a backrub! In the mean time, however, I’ll take this.

    • Marla
      Posted at 12:21h, 04 August

      Sloane, a popsicle that gives a back rub-now your talking! I sure do remember a time long ago before kids. Little did we know how much spare time we had on our hands. There was extra time for spa treatments and places like Enchantment Resort. We’ll need to keep the dream alive girl!

      Mary, yes a handsome super pop model indeed!

      Adair, that gorgeous spa boy will need to stay in my mind…..at least I can have the pop!!

  • Lentil Breakdown

  • Joanne
    Posted at 04:24h, 05 August

    A day at the spa spent slurping down cucumber pops. Now THAT is what I want to be doing right now! With a gorgeous spa boy at my side, of course.

    Marla, lovely – bright – and playful. You clearly have a natural talent and creative ability. I’m really enjoying your blog and recipe ideas. Once the fair is over I would love to take you to lunch and pick your brain. I love the pictures of your little one… my little guy is the 5.

      Louise, I would love to go to lunch with you once our little ones are back at school. I had so much fun with you at the OC Fair. Can’t wait to catch up again soon.

      Katie, hope you kids love these pops as much as mine do 🙂

      Gwen, wish I could hop the next flight to Atlanta to do a girl’s spa day.

    Posted at 03:38h, 06 August

    Marla…the hmmm look your son is giving to that unique popsicle is priceless!

    Yes, this is certainly a healthy and different twist to the pops I’ve made for myself. I’m willing to give this mix a try. I also noticed that you covered the the whole surface with foil…great tip…now, why didn’t I think of that? I guess, this is why you are all becoming a huge part of my culinary journey.

    Thanks for the tiny spa moment ;o)

    Ciao for now,

    How did you know one of my secret pleasures when going to the spa is indeed the cucumber water there? I love this popsicle version even more. I can just close my eyes while enjoying one of these and be in pure bliss.

    I’m 7months pregnant and have been totally addicted to cucumbers. They’re so refreshing and really calm my reflux. While eating a sugary sweet freeze-pop last night (which is NOT reflux friendly), I decided I needed to find a recipe for cucumber pops…and that lead me here! I can’t wait to try this out!
