Something a little different today… Just the other dayI remember the summer afternoons I spent playing with my friends in the yard and snacking on ice cream! My grandfather made it for us, it was fruit ice cream, natural, healthy and homemade. There is no better way to fight the heat and enjoy a little treat!

Kids will love it and if they also participate in the creation they will like it that much more!

Melon Popsicles

  • 1 Honeydew Melon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 lemons

We heat the water and sugar over medium flame, it is important that we do not stop stirring it so that the sugar does not stick. When the sugar is completely dissolved (it has to have syrup texture), we take it out of the heat and let it cool.

While the sugar syrup is cooling, peel the melon and clean it (remove the seeds). We cut it into very small pieces, we will need 4 cups of pieces (if they come out more we can set them aside for another occasion).

Squeeze the lemons and put your juice together with the syrup and half the melon pieces in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the remaining pieces of melon and blend it well so that everything is integrated.

Pour the mixture into the molds and put it in the freezer. About an hour later the mixture will begin to thicken, it's time to stick the wooden stick in (if you are using those). Put the freezer back in until well frozen (about 5 hours).
