If you would like a slice of lime showing through your ice pops there's a trick to getting the slices to stay in the middle of your popsicles. First, fill the popsicle molds about 1/3 of the way full and place in the freezer without the sticks. Allow to freeze for about 1 hour. You want a slushy texture the lime can suspend in within the mold. You might have to break up the ice a little with a knife to achieve this. Now you can insert the lime slice, fill the molds to the top with the remaining mixture. Insert your sticks and place back in the freezer for 5 hours or until completely frozen.
