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

How long do homemade popsicles keep?

I find they’re usually at their best for up to 6 weeks – if they last that long!

Can I still make these watermelon popsicles if I don’t have a popsicle mould?

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!

    1. Hi Anne, thank you for bringing this question to me! I was retesting this recipe a couple of weeks ago and thought I had updated it. Process the popsicles in a blender to smooth and add additional water if needed to liquify the watermelon. There is no need to strain the pulp.If any stray mint leaves remain, I do remove those. Taste for sweetness, pour into popsicle molds, and freeze.
