Cantaloupe Ice Pops

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 1h 30m

eight 2-ounce pops

Finely slivered mint adds a delightfully pretty flair when frozen within these cantaloupe ice pops.

ingredients

  • 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

directions

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.
