Watermelon Mint Frozen Fruit Pops

Yield: 4 fruit pops (about 1/3 cup per pop)
Prep Time: 3 hours 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 30 minutes

It doesn’t get much more cooling and refreshing than these Watermelon Mint Frozen Fruit Pops.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled and diced fresh seedless watermelon
  • 6 large leaves of fresh peppermint, plus more for garnish
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons juice and 1 teaspoon zest)
  • Honey, to taste
  • Ice pop molds and sticks

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a wide-mouth jar.
  2. Using an immersion blender, blend until the mixture is very smooth.
  3. Pour mixture into ice pop molds. Slide in a few full peppermint leaves for garnish, then freeze on a flat surface for an hour, remove, add in the ice pop sticks, then return to freezer. Freeze for an additional 2-3 hours or until frozen solid.

Notes

  • No need to sweeten this if your watermelon are fresh, local, and in season! They'll be sweet enough without any added honey.
  • Because of the small volume of the fruit pop mixture, it's best to use an immersion blender here instead of your big blender or a food processor.
