Texas summer has started showing off its true color. The temperature very soon will be hitting triple digit. When the temperature rises, we like to make fruity popsicles to cool off and beat the summer heat. The popsicles are super-easy, healthy, and fuss free. They don’t take much time to prep as well. This year we gave some fun shapes to the frozen watermelon popsicles which made them super special to enjoy as an afternoon snack.
To make frozen watermelon popsicle, you need to cut the fruit open. You can cube the melon, freeze it in big chunks, or use a melon baller or spoon to create small balls. We used our minar cookie cutter to give them a fun shape. They turned out fabulous.
These fruity popsicles are perfect on a hot summer day or to pack for picnics. Watermelon popsicles are great as iftar treat during the month of Ramadan too.
Cool off a hot summer day with these extra special refreshing pops.
- 2 Teaspoon honey
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Other material needed:
- Minar Cutter to shape the popsicles
- Popsicle sticks
- Cut the watermelon in half lengthwise, then into quarters. From there, you can choose to cut the fruit into wedges or slices.
- Cut off the rind and fish out any seeds with your fingers.
- Using the Minaret cutter from the Islamic Holiday cutter set, cut into minaret shape pieces.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
- Spread the watermelon pieces on the baking sheet. Insert the popsicle sticks in the bottom side of the minaret.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together honey and lime juice and sprinkle over the minaret shapes.
- Freeze until firm. When ready, the watermelon pieces should be frozen solid and no longer soft enough to press into with your fingers. Enjoy!
Place the frozen watermelon into a large freezer-safe plastic bag or resalable plastic container.
