These days, you can find fancy ice pops at your local farmer's market or grocery store in countless flavor combinations, and it's not uncommon to see popsicles infused with everything from lavender to matcha to mint. One flavor you probably haven't yet tried? Pickle juice popsicles.
Hear us out: Pickle juice is delicious and readily available, of course. And it contains electrolytes, which may help boost hydration, especially during the hot summer months. For additional health perks, opt for fermented pickles, such as Bubbies (not all store-bought pickles are fermented; some are soaked in brine). Research has suggested that fermented foods such as pickles, miso, and tempeh may help boost immunity.
One concern about using pickle juice in this way is that it can contain a lot of sodium, so we added fresh cucumber to make the recipe more hydrating (cucumbers are more than 95% water). The result is an easy-to-make, slightly tangy, refreshing, and unexpectedly delicious summer treat.
