There’s nothing quite like Watermelon Mint Popsicles on a hot, summer day. It’s an easy, 2-3 ingredient, healthy treat that’s so simple and so refreshing.
You almost can’t not do it.
I’ve never outgrown my love of summertime popsicles. I’m guessing you haven’t either. 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!

- 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 popsicle molds and freeze until solid. If using popsicle sticks, insert the sticks when the popsicles are partially frozen, about an hour later.
