These watermelon mint popsicles are the perfect treat on a hot summer day! Crazy refreshing, easy to make and guaranteed to make you feel ten degrees cooler.
I’ve been on a popsicle-making rampage this summer. They are so easy to make, I don’t have to turn my oven on (hallelujah) and they’re cute! Win win and win. While its so hard to choose because I really love all of my popsicles so far, these might be my favorite. They are just sooo refreshing. Gah I love them so much.
Now, these popsicles are SUPER easy to make but you will need to make a mint syrup. Don’t fear. It is easy, I promise, and absolutely delicious. You will want to use it in other things too, like coffee and frosting and whipped cream. And there will be extra! As the photo above might clue you in—making the mint syrup entails boiling mint leaves in liquid. The liquid issssss... sugar and water! See? Simple stuff. After you boil this, let it steep and strain it to remove the mint leaves. You’re mostly there guys.
Just blend that watermelon, no liquid is needed, the watermelon has plenty! Once you combine the watermelon water, lime and mint syrup you are ready to pour into the mold and freeze. I love this mold! It’s easy to clean (each part separates) and the design is so cute.
Ahhhh.

Strain the syrup through a sieve to remove leaves.

Popsicles

Place watermelon in a blender and blend until it becomes liquid.
In a spouted bowl or large measuring cup, combine watermelon liquid, lime juice and 1/4 cup of the mint syrup. Taste and adjust if necessary.

To remove the popsicles, run each under warm water and gently pull on the stick until it easily slides out.
Enjoy!
