I’ve never outgrown my love of summertime popsicles. I’m guessing you haven’t either. This recipe for Watermelon Mint Popsicles with a twist of lime and a hint of mint is truly delightful. And takes me back to the carefree summers of childhood.
While the recipe calls for honey (or agave nectar if you prefer) I most often eliminate it. Of course, it all depends on the inherent sweetness of your melon and your tastes.
When making these popsicles for kids (or teenagers), I do add the sweetener.
Watermelon has excellent levels of vitamins A and C and a good level of vitamin B6.
With a refrigerator brimming with delicious fruits and berries, popsicles are one of the easiest ways to preserve and even enjoy the season’s bounty.
Here’s to summer!
Frequently Asked Questions
I find they’re usually at their best for up to 6 weeks – if they last that long!
Sure! Keep and wash out old single serving yogurt pots and use them as your moulds. Alternatively, you can freeze the popsicle mix in a tub and use it to make a refreshing granita instead!

- Popsicle Mold
- 4 cups seeded and cubed watermelon
- 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh mint leaves optional
- 1/2 lime juiced
- 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
- Blend the watermelon, mint leaves and lime juice in a blender until pureed. Taste and see if any sweetener is needed. Pour the mixture through a fine sieve or cheesecloth to remove mint leaves and remaining fibrous melon. Press the mixture with the back of a spoon and into a bowl.
- Pour the liquid into the popsicle mold and freeze until solid. If using popsicle sticks, insert the sticks when the popsicles are partially frozen, about an hour later.
