Learn how to turn fresh watermelon into popsicles. This added-sugar-free popsicle recipe is refreshing and delicious!
– Watermelon: Any variety will work, though seedless is easier since you don’t have to worry about the seeds. – Optional ingredients: honey and lime juice
Cut each round into a stick about the width of two fingers or into a small wedge. Place a popsicle stick into the rind of the wedges. Place onto parchment-paper and freeze.
Wash the watermelon and dry. Place onto a cutting board and slice into rounds. Dice up the watermelon, removing and discarding the rind.
Seedless watermelon is easiest here. If your watermelon has seeds, you probably want to remove as many large seeds as you can before freezing or blending.
Place the diced melon into a blender and blend very smooth. Scrape the sides as needed until everything is blended.
To make a very smooth popsicle, you can strain the liquid through a fine-mesh strainer. This removes any lingering pulp, but is totally optional.
Pour the blended watermelon into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
Serve or transfer the popsicles to a freezer bag for longer term storage in the freezer. Enjoy frozen!
