Lemon Melon Popsicles with Mint & Cucumber Course: Desserts
Diet: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Paleo, Dairy Free, Vegan

Homemade popsicles are free from all the extra stuff often found in store-bought popsicles and you can be a bit creative and use truly ripe, local produce. 

After experimenting with a variety of combinations, we're ready to share our take on homemade popsicles with fresh, local produce.


  • 1 medium melon, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks (3 cups)
  • 1 small cucumber, cut into chunks (1 cup)
  • 1 handful fresh mint (10 leaves), finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons water


  1. Chop melon into 1-inch pieces and roughly chop mint and cucumber.

  2. In a small pan, warm 2 Tablespoons honey and 2 Tablespoons water until the honey is soft and liquefied with the water.

  3. In a blender or food processor, add the chopped melon, chopped cucumber, fresh mint, honey and water. Blend until smooth.

  4. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. Makes approximately 6 standard popsicles, 3-4 ounces each. 

Recipe Notes

Adding a little bit of sweetener is completely optional, but it does help bring out the natural flavors of the fruits.
