What is cuter than a homemade popsicle, I ask you this? There are endless ingredient possibilities: berries, mango, banana, yoghurt, my mind swirls with glee at the very thought.
I’ve been crushing on homemade fruit popsicles for a long time, and on Australia Day last month I finally worked up the courage to ask my crush on a date.
Blushing Summer watermelon and raspberries were combined with dainty touch of sugar. And what’s a date without a little mint?
How sweet it is to be loved by you.
Watermelon, Raspberry and Mint Popsicles
This recipe requires a blender and popsicle moulds. It will yield 25 x 50ml popsicles, or ~1.25 Litres of mixture. If not feeding a large crowd, half or quarter the recipe. Leftover mixture will be lovely mixed with some soda water for a refreshing summer drink.
3 cups chopped Watermelon
2 cups frozen Raspberries
6 sprigs fresh Mint
1-2 teaspoons Stevia (you can use sugar or agave nectar if you wish. Honey or any thicker sweetener might be too viscous and not dissolve/distribute properly)
A pinch of Salt
1. Add the watermelon, raspberry, mint, 1 teaspoon stevia and salt to a blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Taste and add more stevia if required – your fruit may be sweet enough! Blend again.
3. Using a ladle, pour the mixture into the popsicle moulds and freeze for at least 4 hours.
4. To turn out, run the moulds under cool water. If required, sit them in a bath of cool water for a minute or so. When the bottom feels like it will give easily, gently pull them out and voilà!
