Remember being a kid and playing outside on a hot summer day and all of the sudden the ice cream truck rolls by? That song they play over and over (AND OVER) has a Pavlovian effect on most people. Must.Get.Super.Pop.

And unlike ice cream from a van (now that I say that aloud it sounds incredibly creepy…), these are practically unlimited, healthy with no sugar added, and almost free.

And if you love delicious and refreshing thirst-quenchers, check out this Cucumber and Mint Water recipe. Perfect for summer (or anytime) colds, our Healthy Tea Popsicles For Sore Throats are a wonderful frozen treat for kids and adults.

Here’s How to Make These Cooling Treats

Place your watermelon, lime juice, and mint in a blender or food processor. Blend!

Pour into your popsicle molds of choice (these are the ones we have but they’re so much cheaper at like TJ Maxx or Marshalls) and freeze until solid.

That’s it!

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • There will be some separation during the freezing process; totally normal. That is the watermelon “meat” (that can’t be the right word, can it?) and the natural juices (it is called WATERmelon after all). It all tastes delicious.
  • Keep some mint in the freezer to make sure you always have the ingredients on hand for these. Related: Freezing Mint.
  • Most popsicle molds will need to be run under hot water for a few seconds after coming out of the freezer. This will help you release the popsicle without breaking the mold.
