Drenched Watermelon Ice Pops

If you’re wondering why this ice pop’s called ‘drenched’, it’s because we suggest squeezing lime juice over it as you eat it. Out of curiosity one morning, I started dipping this ice pop into white rum – it was so good that I couldn’t stop! Try it – just make sure you do it in the evening rather than the morning…! ­ Cesar and Nadia Roden, authors of Ice Pops!: 50 Delicious Fresh and Fabulous Icy Treats.


Variation: Throw a handful of torn mint leaves into the sugar syrup as it heats. When cooled, squeeze the leaves with your fingers before discarding.

Is there anything better than an ice cold popsicle on a hot summer day? There's only thing I can think . a big slice of juicy watermelon!

If you love popsicles and watermelon (and who doesn't?), then you have to try these amazing Watermelon Popsicles.

These sweet, colorful fruit pops combine your two hot weather faves in one delicious treat.

Don't let another day go by without making these heavenly fruit popsicles . they taste like summer on a stick!

You are going to love these yummy fruit pops! They taste just like fresh watermelon, and they're kid approved.

According to my six year old niece (who helped me make them), these Watermelon Ice Pops are good, very good, and (when pressed to be more descriptive) super good. And I have to agree.

These Watermelon Ice Lollies aren't just tasty though . they're also healthy. Watermelon is packed with nutrients, and it's almost all water (92%). Which means it's hydrating and low-cal. Plus, they vegan, dairy free, and gluten-free.

These refreshing fresh fruit popsicles are the ultimate summer treat, and they couldn't be easier to make!

Watermelon Italian Ice

As a kid, I never really liked watermelon.

It wasn’t so much that I hated it rather, it just tasted like, well, water.

I’d rather have the sweet, assertive taste of mango or pineapple if I wanted some juicy fruit to snack on.

Then one hot, blistering summer day last year, I wasn’t feeling well due to the heat. My parents were with me and had just bought fresh, cubed watermelon from the store.

Considering we didn’t have anything to drink in the car, I gave in and ate a few pieces, just enough to get me through the trip.

That’s when I realized that watermelon isn’t so bad after all. Still watery like I remembered but also a little bit sweet.

Later that summer, I bought a few watermelon slices of my own and made a watermelon salsa. Summer soon ended, and that was the last of the watermelon for the year.

Fast forward to this year, and I wanted to take watermelon into a new direction. It’s not an ingredient you typically bake with, considering how watery it is.

As I racked my brain for dessert ideas, frozen treats kept coming to mind.

Watermelon ice cream didn’t feel cohesive. Then it hit me – Watermelon Italian Ice.

And let me tell you – it is the most amazing watermelon treat I’ve had so far.

Not that I’ve had many watermelon treats, but I was blown away at how good this was. Far greater than expectations I had for it.

So whether you eat your weight in watermelon or whether you just nibble on it here and there, just promise you’ll give this Watermelon Italian Ice a try.

What is Italian ice? It is a frozen treat made with fruit puree/juice and a simple sugar syrup. There’s no dairy and no egg.

The texture is very similar to eating ice (hence the name) but not quite like a snow cone or shaved ice. Think of a snow cone but with finer ice crystals.

It’s also very similar to a sorbet but not as smooth.

If you still have no idea what I’m talking about, just make a batch. You won’t regret it.

Not going to lie – I was surprised at how strong the watermelon flavor was. I was afraid since my watermelon wasn’t the juiciest, the ice wouldn’t be as sweet.

Luckily, the lemon really brings out the watermelon.

If your watermelon is really sweet to begin with, you may want to cut back on the sugar syrup.

The ratio is 1:1, so if you want to cut it back to 1/4 cup sugar, you’ll also want to make the water 1/4 cup.

The motivation behind this creating this Watermelon Italian Ice was for a watermelon recipe contest. And thanks to this ridiculously good recipe, I now want to turn all of the fruits into Italian ice.

Watermelon Ice Pops

These ice pops provide childhood nostalgia with grownup flavor. Chef Mai Pham purees summery watermelon with raspberries, ginger and cayenne for a refreshing sweet-savory treat. Serve these ice pops as is or make them smaller and serve as garnishes for drinks (with or without alcohol). For a quick cooler, double the watermelon mixture recipe and serve with watermelon infused sparkling water.

Steps to make Watermelon and Cream Ice Pops

Layer watermelon and cookies

In ice cream molds, layer some of the watermelon and crumbled sandwich cookies, alternating between each filling, until almost all the way to the top. Set aside.

Prepare cream mixture

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the milk, Greek yogurt and maple syrup together until well combined and smooth.

Fill molds

Pour the cream mixture into the ice molds, between the watermelon and sandwich cookies, until the molds are completely full.

Purée the watermelon for a slushy consistency.

Watermelon Ice Pops

Watermelon ice pops are the perfect snack for a hot day! This vegan dessert is light, refreshing, and filled with sweet flavors of summer. These ice pops are easy to make and healthier than your classic desserts.

I love being able to use up all of my produce without letting any go to waste. This recipe is perfect when I buy a large watermelon and can't finish the whole thing in time. It's a great way to use all of your produce and make a delicious treat at the same time!

Watermelon Ice Pop Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh watermelon (seedless)
  • ¼ cup cool water
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp maple syrup


Put all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend/process until smooth. Pour the mixture into your ice pop molds and place in the freezer. Place your popsicle sticks into the moulds and place in the freezer.

Wait at least 4 hours until your pops are frozen solid and ready to eat. Cool off on a hot day and enjoy all summer long!

Ice pop tip: If it's hard to get your ice pops out of the mold, run the outer part of the mold under room temperature water. This will help the pops slide out easily!
