ready in 5 h. 25 min.
Make the lime lemonade first by combining the lime juice with water, sugar and natural food coloring in a bowl. Stir to dissolve the sugar and chill until cold.
Remove the dispenser from the box including the charger holder and two dispenser tips. Unscrew the top off the dispenser, then screw on the tip of your choice (straight or tulip) while holding in place the valve stem under the cap. Be sure to screw the tip on tightly. Make sure that the gasket (also called the O-ring) is firmly in place on the underside of the head.
Pour in up to one pint of well-chilled lime aid into a dispenser. Do not exceed recommended amount. Screw the top evenly and firmly onto the bottle. Do not cross-thread. Place a n2o cartridge in the holder with the small end visible. Twist charger holder onto head until gas is released. A slight hissing sound will be heard. For a pint dispenser, use only one charger per filling. For a quart dispenser, use two chargers per filling.
Shake the dispenser 3-6 times. Turn the dispenser upside down. This is important, otherwise gas will escape and a proportionate amount of your liquid will not be released. Dispense as needed into popsicle molds by pressing on the lever, filling popsicle molds with approximately 2/3 of limeade. If the mixture is too runny, shake the dispenser a few more times and try again. If desired, the holder can be removed along with the used charger and the small cap put in its place. When the canister is empty, simply discharge any remaining pressure in a sink or wastepaper basket and unscrew the top. The small brush that is included is useful for cleaning the tips. Do not put dispensers in a commercial dishwasher.
Freeze popsicle molds uncovered for about 1 hour. Take pops out of freezer. Scrape and stir any ice crystals that have formed. Gently place one cucumber slice on top of the pop molds. Add your popsicle sticks, and freeze pops for another 3-4 hours until solid.
