I remember my mom would make apple juice popsicles in the summer when we were younger. She would use those plastic molds with the straw on the base and I thought it was the best thing ever. I still love a good apple popsicle but its also fun to create new varieties to try. I whipped up these cantaloupe popsicles the other night after the kids went to bed. And I mean whipped. I used two ingredients and my blender to make these delicious treats. Oh and I used the plastic molds with straws.
When I say these were so easy to make, you have to believe me. I feel silly even posting the ‘recipe’ but they were too good not to share. To make these cantaloupe popsicles you will need:
- One small Sugar Kiss Cantaloupe
- 1 Cup Half n Half
- De-seed your cantaloupe and cut it into chunks.
- Place them and a cup of half and half in a blender.
- Mix for about 30 seconds.
- Place the mixture in your molds.
Honestly, I didn’t expect these to be as tasty as they were. They were creamy and so sweet. And just melty enough that I was about to use my straw. I mean, the kids were. [Who am I kidding, yall know I was all over these popsicles.]
I think it had a lot to do with the Sugar Kiss cantaloupe that I used. I had bought one before and it was super sweet. It was like I was eating a piece of candy, but candy that is considered good for you. Add a straw mold and its like a lollipop. A cantaloupe popsicle lollipop.
I think Im on a popsicle kick lately.
What is your favorite summer popsicle? And do you love the straw mold as much as I do? [Say yes.]
