When the weather starts to warm up and sunshine comes out, it means it's time to make some Berry Melon Popsicles to help everyone cool down after a day full of fun in the sun!
It's summer; the weather here locally hasn't seem to have quite gotten the memo on that like it did this time last summer, but none the less it's summer. That means in our house; it's time for our girls to be outside, playing with their friends and, of course, popsicle season.
Yes, I know popsicles are easily bought at the store, but have you ever stopped to read the ingredients in some of them? Sure they may taste good to kids and adults alike at times, but in our house, nothing compares to a homemade popsicle. I think the fun in making them is really in the fact that you can make them into whatever flavors you want them to be. I mean, who doesn't love getting creative with their kids in the kitchen coming up with fun new flavors to try?

So who is ready to make some popsicle's?
These popsicles use real food ingredients, so it's important to make sure your fruit is ripe. These particular popsicle's use mainly watermelon and strawberries. This combination of fruits yields a nice sweet (not overly sweet) popsicle that you and your kids will keep going back for seconds, or thirds or more all season long.
Ingredients in Berry Melon Popsicle's
- Pineapple Juice
- Lemon Juice
- Honey, Sugar or Monk Fruit Sweetener (optional)
There are a LOT of popsicle molds on the market, and you can use whatever ones you want to for these. I have used both a traditional mold and the disposable (think otter-pop) type molds, and honestly, they all work fine.
These particular popsicles are more on the liquid side (watermelon is mostly water after all), so I prefer the otter-pop style. It also leaves it easier for me to make larger batches at a time for our girls to grab and go with them when playing with their friends. I like these because they are BPA Free, non-toxic, and have no phthalates, so I know they are safe for our kids to use. Bonus, they come in a pack of 100 because, hello, it's popsicle season!
Now that we have the molds let's make some popsicles! I promise these won't last long once you make them!
How to make popsicle's?
These are super simple to make:
- Just cut up the fruit, toss it, and the remaining ingredients into a food processor or blender and puree.
- Pour the mixture into the molds.
- Let them freeze and enjoy!
More Frozen Treats
Berry Melon Popsicle’s
- 2 C Watermelon Fresh, roughly chopped
- 1 ½ C Strawberries Fresh or frozen
- ½ C Pineapple Juice
- ½ C Lemon Juice
- ½ C Sugar Honey, ¼ teaspoon Monk Fruit or Sweetner or Choice
- Chop the fruit.
- Add the fruit and all of the remaining ingredients into a food processor blender and blend until the mixture is pure liquid. (It is okay if there are tiny pieces of fruit still present since these are after all real food popsicles)
- Transfer to the popsicle molds of choice and allow them to freeze. I have noticed that with the traditional molds these take about 4-6 hours to become more solid whereas with the otter-pop style they take closer to 2-3 hours.
- Once frozen and enjoy!
