Healthy Watermelon Mint Pops Are The Perfect Summer Treat

Nothing says summer like watermelon! And nothing goes better with watermelon than mint, which means watermelon mint pops are the best summer treat!

They’re also super easy to make and WAAAAY healthier than any store-bought popsicles.

So many grocery store pops are filled with artificial colors, artificial sugars, and artificial flavors that are completely unnecessary and do more harm than good. Making your own at home is an easy, fun, and healthy way to enjoy a cooling summer treat.

Watermelon is full of vitamin C, naturally purified water, and delicious flavor, while the mint and lime add even more antioxidants and alkalizing health benefits.

One of the things I love most about this recipe is the beautiful color–the watermelon naturally separates a little as it freezes giving these pops a pretty ombré look.

Mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow. In fact, plant it in a separate pot because it will take over your garden like a weed. You can buy a mint plant start for $2-$3 and it will yield fresh mint all summer long. It’s also really good for you and tastes delicious in both sweet and savory recipes. Here are 10 more ways to use mint if you want more ideas.

To get the best watermelon, look for one that is firm and feels heavy for its size. Give is a gentle knock–it should have a deep hollow sound. Also, only buy what you need. If you’ve ever cut up a watermelon then you know that it adds up quickly. Ask the produce person to cut it in half for you if you don’t think you’ll eat the entire thing–just about every grocery store is happy to only sell you what you need when something is sold by the pound.

You can find BPA-free popsicle molds at most kitchen stores or online for a really great price. I use these ones that I got on Amazon.

Deliciously Healthy Watermelon Mint Pops Recipe

Makes 6-8 popsicles depending on your molds

  • 4-5 cups of chopped (about 2 inches) seedless watermelon pieces (organic if possible)
  • about 10 medium fresh mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey (local if possible)
  • 1.5 tablespoons of fresh lime juice (about the juice of 1 lime)

Recipe: Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour into BPA-free popsicle molds and freeze at least 6 hours. Run the popsicle mold under lukewarm water for about 30 seconds and the frozen popsicle will slide right out. They’ll keep in the freezer for a few months if needed, but mine are are usually gone within the week.
