Finely slivered mint adds a delightfully pretty flair when frozen within these cantaloupe ice pops.
- 1 small cantaloupe
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon finely slivered fresh mint leaves
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup lemon, juice depending on the sweetness of the melon
Cut the cantaloupe in half; remove and discard the seeds. Scoop out the flesh and transfer to a food processor. Purée until smooth; measure 1 1/3 cups purée and transfer to a small bowl.
Pour the water into a small saucepan, add the sugar and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the mint and immediately remove from the heat. Let stand for 1 minute.
Stir the mint syrup and lemon juice into the cantaloupe purée in the bowl. Pour the mixture into 8 individual frozen-treat molds or small (2-ounce) paper cups.
Freeze until beginning to set, about 1 hour. Insert frozen-treat sticks and freeze until completely firm. Dip the molds briefly in hot water before unmolding.
