Ice pops are fun and easy to make. Simply blend up fresh and fruity ingredients and freeze in ice pop molds.
Don’t have an ice pop mold? No problem. All you need is 5-ounce paper cups, foil and wooden sticks to make your own molds.
Here’s a recipe for watermelon ice pops. So simple, it has only 4 ingredients. The most difficult part of this recipe is waiting for the pops to freeze. Patience will be rewarded!
Watermelon Coconut Water Ice Pops
4 cups fresh watermelon chunks, seedless or seeds removed
1/2 cup coconut water
Juice from 1 fresh lime
2 to 4 tablespoons organic evaporated cane sugar
8 (5-ounce) paper cups
Add watermelon, coconut water, lime juice and sugar to blender container. Cover and blend until liquid and smooth. Remove and discard foam. (You should have about 3 cups liquid remaining.) Pour liquid into paper cups (about 1/3 cup liquid into each paper cup). Cover cups with squares of foil; insert wooden stick through foil. Freeze until solid, about 8 hours.
Makes 8 ice pops
Tip: The amount of sugar needed depends on the sweetness of the watermelon. If the watermelon is sweet and flavorful use less sugar.
What is coconut water? Coconut water is the liquid from young, green coconuts. Be sure to use coconut water for this recipe, not coconut milk.
