Easy 2-ingredient strawberry watermelon popsicles that are ready for the freezer in 5 minutes. A refreshing and healthy treat that is great for hot summer days!

Popsicles… a favorite summer treat! Cool and refreshing. But why make your own? The store bought kind can have boat loads of unneeded added sugars, food-dyes, and preservatives. While there are some healthier store bought kinds (which I also do buy from time-to-time), nothing comes close to homemade healthy popsicles, and this strawberry popsicle recipe is a great way to start if you’re new to making your own.

All you need are strawberries and watermelon! And if you want an extra-sweet treat, there is an option for adding some natural sweetener.

  • ▢ 2 cups chopped watermelon
  • ▢ 2 cups hulled and sliced strawberries
Optional Ingredients (see notes)
  • ▢ 2 tbsp. raw honey
  • ▢ 2 tbsp. water

Mix watermelon and strawberries in a blender or food processor until fully blended.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 3-4 hours, or until frozen.
  • If adding honey: Using a small sauce pan, heat the honey and water over low heat. Stir frequently until honey has dissolved and you are left with sugar water. Pour this into the blender with the fruit prior to blending. (I like using raw honey, but regular honey will work. You could try maple syrup or organic sugar too). If adding honey, each popsicle will have roughly 5 grams of added sugar and 46 calories.

  • Unmolding popsicles – let the popsicles sit at room temperature for 2-3 minutes before taking out of the molds (this just helps them slide out of the molds more easily). You can also run under warm water for 30 seconds or so to loosen them from the molds.
  • You can store these in the molds, or take all popsicles out of molds after frozen and store in a freezer safe container. Use some parchment paper between popsicles if needed.
  • Popsicles will stay good in the freezer for 2-3 weeks.
