Melon Popsicles Take 2

So after thinking more about the melon popsicles from yesterday, I started searching for triangle popsicle molds. I didn't find any, but I did find Kristina Castella. She has a book and a website all about icy pops!

I found this cute picture at Icy Pops:

And I thought this was a pretty cute way to serve your melon a melon! She also had this recipe for making melon pops that are actually made out of melons. So now you can have a melon pop that LOOKS like a melon AND tastes like a melon!

Perfectly ripe honeydew melons are extraordinarily juicy and sweet. For these pops choose melons that have a high water content that are a little overripe. Honeydew is rich in vitamin C and potassium. Try layering the honeydew mixture with the watermelon and cantaloupe variations for beautiful pastel pops.

4 cups diced (1/2-inch cubes) ripe honeydew melon
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Juice of 3 limes
Grated zest of 1 lime
3 teaspoons honey

1. Put 2 cups of the melon, the yogurt, and lime juice and zest in a food processor or blender; process until smooth.
2. Add the honey; process again to combine.
3. Stir in the remaining 2 cups melon.
4. Fill the pop molds with the mixture. Freeze for at least 6 hours.
5. Remove from the freezer. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before removing the pops from the molds. Serve.

Replace the honeydew melon with 5 cups diced watermelon, and replace the lime juice with 2 teaspoons almond extract. Add 1/3 cup almonds.

Replace the honeydew melon with 4 cups diced cantaloupe, and replace the yogurt with 1/3 cup soy milk. Add 3 chopped fresh mint leaves.

I am still on the lookout for a triangle popsicle mold!

Yummo! I like the shape of those popsicles. At least I know what's in them as opposed to those artificial flavored ones in the grocer.

I saw the "Melon Brain" post too. If you start looking for melon eyeballs I may get concerned. I'm just ;D
