Watermelon Popsicles

Back in 2017, 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 lineup 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 healthy watermelon popsicle version.

Watermelon Popsicle Ingredients

How to Make Watermelon Popsicles

Step 1: Blend the watermelon part. Place all the ingredients for the watermelon part into a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

Step 2: Pour into popsicle molds. Pour this mixture into your popsicle molds, (I used this one) and leave about 1/2-inch space for the rind.

Step 3: Freeze the watermelon portion. Place in your freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Step 4: Make the “rind” part. Place the ingredients for the rind in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth and pour over top of the watermelon ingredients in the mold. Add your popsicle sticks and allow it to freeze completely for about 3 hours.

Step 5: Serve once frozen! To remove popsicles from the mold, run the mold under slightly warm water for a couple of minutes. Remove from water and pull popsicles out.

How can I make these popsicles keto-friendly?

You can easily make these popsicles keto-friendly by using erythritol instead of raw honey. However, because of the watermelon and kiwi they might be more a low-carb treat instead of a keto treat.

How to Store Homemade Popsicles

Keep the popsicles stored in their mold. You can also remove the popsicles from the mold and store them in an airtight container in your freezer for up to 3 months.
