Our garden had lots of honeydew melon so I had to make something with them. It’s September but it’s still warm so why not make some ice pops or paletas, if you will. These were so easy to make.
These were such a pretty mint green color. I loved them. They were sweet and creamy. Yum!
Honey Dew Melon Ice Pops
- 1 (3-1/2- to 4-pound) ripe honeydew melon
- 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Set a fine-mesh strainer over a large bowl; set aside.
- Cut the melon into 1-1/2-inch chunks. Place in a blender, add the salt, and blend on high until very smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Pour through the strainer and let sit until the excess juice has drained, about 5 minutes. Discard the excess juice, or reserve for another use.
- Transfer the drained melon purée to a medium bowl, add the sugar, and whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Add the cream and whisk until just combined. Divide the mixture among the pop molds and freeze until solid, at least 6 hours.
If you don’t have honey dew melon growing in your garden go and buy some. These paletas are so worth the little trouble it takes to make them.
