A few weekends ago, I took my kids for a walk and we were passing by neighbour’s house where kids were happily sucking onto bright green and red popsicles. The day was hot and popsicles definitely were hitting a spot. Immediately my mind started racing and it hit me – why don’t I make the same bright and sweet ice pops with fruit?! I don’t know why but I never thought of that, no idea why?! Why oh why LOL.

After we got home, I quickly went through my fruit platter and freezer. Got a few mint leaves from my herb planter. Whipped up 3 batches of cantaloupe, melon and strawberry fruit puree. Froze it in popsicle molds and voila.

  1. Blueberry! I acdentally thew out my ice cream pops mold but it was plastic anyway so I never replaced it…would LOVE these stainless steel molds…juice pops are a great way to curb “cravings” !

  2. I love anything tropical like mango, pineapple, lychee, but I also love herbs, like strawberry with basil and honey

  3. Whatever the green ones are… LOL. Probably some Lime variation… not sure. The only popsicles I’ve ever had were storebought.

  4. My favorite is mango and I just started researching about why organic is better. I’m so happy I found your website. Thanks and God Bless You.

  5. How genius is this idea! I love the whole stainless steel set and would love to get one for myself. I would make a strawberry mango pop! I’m sure the flavor ideas are endless especially in the summertime. Thanks for sharing with us Olena!

  6. I’ve always been a fan of orange flavored Popsicles especially when its mixed with ice cream…CREAMSICLES!
