Honeydew and Coconut Popsicles


There was a time when my dad went through a major Otter-Pops phase. On dreary weekends, I remember him eating them like popcorn during movies. Of course I joined in occasionally, reaching mostly for the purple or red flavors. The best part was when the pop had melted a bit, and you got to suck the sugary-goodness out of the plastic tube. Ah, simple pleasures.


While Otter Pops are fun, sometimes you need a real  popsicle. Made with fresh fruit, a little honey and a blend of coconut milk and water, these hit the spot. These pops are not too sweet, and I love the fresh green color!

Honeydew and Coconut Popsicles
1/2 of a Honeydew Melon, cut into chunks

1 cup Coconut Water
1 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
2 tbs. Lime Juice

3 Tbs. Honey (optional).

Note: I recently purchased this mold, and really like it. This recipe makes enough to completely fill this mold.
1. Place honeydew chunks, coconut water, coconut milk and lime juice into a blender. Blend on high until the mixture is fully blended and smooth.
2. Taste, and add additional honey if desired. My honeydew was not as ripe as I would have liked, so I added this. But if yours is extremely ripe, you may not need to. You could also use sugar, agave syrup or a simple syrup. 3. Once you are happy with the sweetness, pour into your popsicle mold. You want to pour immediately after blending, as the mixture will begin to separate if left out too long. 
4. Place into the freezer, and let freeze completely (I let mine freeze for 24 hours). Once your ready to eat, run your mold under hot water, pull the pops out, and enjoy!
