Watermelon Popsicles

Last year, I visited Kensington Market in Toronto and I started to notice people walking around with the prettiest popsicles.  I eventually found the source (a long line up made it so obvious!). I patiently waited in line as I watched person after person walk out of the store with the most amazing popsicles! I wanted to try them all… but you know the summer heat prevented me from walking around with 10 popsicles all at once 😛

It was finally my turn! I was stunned. Which one, which one!

I can’t make a mistake and pick a crappy one then I’ll be angry that I waited 15 minutes in line.

I noticed a lot of people picked the pretty watermelon popsicle one.

I went with the popular choice and bit into it.

Oh my! It was delicious. Sweet and fresh and I could still taste the watermelon. Then I got to the “green rind” part and I thought they probably dyed the same mixture green… no no no!  It was kiwi! I could make a whole popsicle based on this kiwi mixture (hmm maybe I will!). Here’s my slightly less sweet version.

Watermelon Popsicles

Yield: 10 popsicles

Ingredients:

Watermelon Part (pink part)

2 1/2 cups watermelon, rind removed and cubed

2/3 cup coconut water

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons raw honey

Pinch of fine sea salt

Rind Part (green part)

2 1/2 kiwis, peeled and chopped

1/3 cup coconut water

2 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons raw honey

Pinch of fine sea salt

Directions:

  1. Place all the ingredients for the watermelon part into a blender/food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Pour this mixture into your popsicle molds, (I used this one) and leave about 1/2-inch space for the rind.
  3. Place in your freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Puree the rind ingredients and pour over top of the watermelon ingredients in the mold. Add your popsicle sticks and allow it to freeze completely, about 3 hours.
  5. Serve once frozen! To remove popsicles from mold, run the mold under slightly warm water for a couple of minutes. Remove from water and pull popsicles out.
