Ingredients / Shopping List

  • Watermelon: I find that a seedless watermelon is the best choice for this recipe. It saves so much time from having to pull out all of the seeds while you are cutting up the watermelon chunks.
  • Coconut Yogurt: Coconut yogurt is the ideal choice for this recipe. It adds a nice creamy texture and provides just the right amount of sweetness. Make sure to choose a coconut yogurt that has zero added sugars.
  • Kiwis

Substitutions and Additions

  • Try a different fruit: Instead of watermelon, you could use cantaloupe, honeydew, papaya, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mango, peaches, or pineapple. 
  • Coconut yogurt: You can use soy yogurt or even milk yogurt if you prefer. Coconut milk (full fat from the can) also works great. 
  • Mimic the seeds: For the appearance of “seeds,” stir some chocolate chips, raisins, or frozen blueberries into the watermelon puree before adding it to the molds.
  • Make it Minty: Add mint leaves make the watermelon popsicles even more flavorful by adding 4-5 mint leaves to the watermelon mixture before you puree it.
  • How to Make Boozy Popsicles: For adults only! Add two ounces of tequila (or more to taste) to the blender before you blend the watermelon.

How to Make the Kiwi Watermelon Popsicles

This easy 3 ingredient kiwi watermelon popsicle recipe is the healthiest, most refreshing snack you can feel good about eating! Perfectly cool for a hot summer day!

  1. Blend the watermelon.
    Pro-Tip: If you don’t have a blender, a food processor will work fine.

  2. Pour watermelon puree into popsicle molds and freeze.
    Pro-Tip: If your popsicle molds don’t include a stick rack, freeze for 1 1/2 hours and then remove from the freezer and stick the wooden sticks in the watermelon popsicle. Return the mold to the freezer.

Tips

  • Use a seedless watermelon so you won’t find any hard black seed pieces in your popsicles. If you use a watermelon with seeds, try to pick out as many of the seeds as you can. The small white seeds are fine to leave, but the black seeds won’t blend very well. 
  • For maximum natural sweetness, make sure you pick a good watermelon. It should feel heavy for its size and sound hollow when you tap it a few times. It should also have a yellow spot, which indicates it’s been sitting on the ground, ripening until sweet.
  • To release the popsicles from their molds, dip the bottoms into a bowl of warm water first to loosen their hold. Avoid using hot water as that may cause the popsicles to melt.

Storage Tips

  • To Store: Remove from the molds and store in individual resealable freezer-friendly bags. However, you can just keep them in their molds if planning to eat them within 5-7 days. 
  • To Freeze: Store your popsicles in freezer-friendly containers or stack them in a larger bag, but be sure to place wax paper in between each one. Popsicles can stay in the freezer for 2-3 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my popsicles last in the freezer?

If the popsicles are stored properly, they will stay fresh in the freezer for 2-3 months.

Do I have to strain the watermelon puree?

I don’t strain the blended watermelon puree because I like a little texture in the popsicles, but you can strain it if you prefer a super smooth popsicle without any pulp. 

Are popsicles healthy?

These kiwi watermelon popsicles are super healthy, although it really depends on how you make them. The addition of sugars, fats, flavors, and colorings could make them unhealthy. If you follow this recipe they will be 100% natural and healthy.

Can you use frozen watermelon?

Although frozen watermelon may not taste so great to eat after it has thawed, using it for a recipe like this one works pretty well. Once it has been blended into a puree, it is similar to using fresh watermelon.

What type of molds do you use for homemade kiwi watermelon popsicles?

It’s best to use PBA-Free popsicle molds for this recipe.
