Watermelon-Strawberry Popsicles

It’s official. Summer is right around the corner and what’s better than a popsicle on a hot summer day?

Better yet, a vegan ice pop blended with fresh summer fruit for a grown-up version of the season’s ice cream truck classics… and best of all, they’re kid-approved!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cup sliced strawberries plus 2 cups whole strawberries, divided
  • 2 cups cubed seeded watermelon
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • Prep 15 m

  • Ready in 6 h 15 m

  1. Press sliced strawberries to the insides of six 3-ounce freezer-pop molds.
  2. Combine whole strawberries, watermelon, lime juice, brown sugar and salt in a blender. Puree. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a medium bowl, pressing on the solids to yield as much juice as possible. (Discard solids.) Divide the mixture among the prepared molds and insert sticks.
  3. Freeze until solid, about 6 hours.
  • To make ahead: Freeze for up to 3 weeks.
  • Equipment: Six 3-oz. freezer-pop molds
