Additional Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours 15 minutes
Servings: 10 popsicles

Ingredients 

  • 5 ½ cups watermelon chop into squares before measuring
  • cup freshly squeezed lemon juice about 2 large lemons or 3 small lemons juiced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest zest of 1 large lemon or 2 small
  • 18 fresh mint leaves stems removed, about 4 sprigs

Instructions

  • Cut the watermelon and zest and juice the lemons. Then, add the watermelon, lemon juice, lemon zest, and mint leaves to a blender and blend together until smooth.
  • Pour the watermelon popsicle mixture into a popsicle mold filling each mold until there is 1-inch of space left on the top of the mold. Then, add in the popsicle sticks. Add the mold to the freezer for 6-12 hours until frozen through.
  • Remove the mold from the freezer and gently run a butter knife along the edges of the mold to loosen the popsicles. Once the popsicles have been removed enjoy immediately as they will melt fast. Enjoy!

Notes

    • Leftover popsicles can be stored in a closed container in the freezer between sheets of parchment paper for 2 months. It's important that none of the popsicles are touching and that there is parchment paper on the top and bottom of the container to prevent freezer burn.
    • If watermelon is not that sweet, 2 Tbsp- ¼ cup honey or agave can be added to the popsicle mixture to sweeten.
    • Lemon juice can be subbed for lime juice 1:1 but lime zest should be cut in half (½ Tbsp vs. 1)
    • Here is the popsicle mold I used for this recipe
