I love these melon pops with mint because I can have them at any time of the day. Let me tell you why.
These Mexican ice pops are made with only two ingredients, seriously, only two: melon and mint. They don’t even have sugar in them. That’s why I know these ice pops are for every situation. They are so easy to make I only had to put two photos.
To make these ice pops use peeled melon, without seeds, in large chunks and throw them in the blender or food processor. Pulse them until everything is in small pieces. I like when my ice pops have a bit of texture, like the ones my mom used to buy me when I was young. They were full of fruit! I was in love with them!
Returning to how to make them, once they all the pieces are pulsed add the mint and pulse them again. And that’s it, really it’s that easy. Now just pour them in molds and throw them in the freezer.
tips, tricks & other recipes:
- Eat them for breakfast. They are perfect for those days when you are short on time and have to leave early. Well, one of those days, you can easily take one of these ice pops and eat them on the way. It’s like eating your fruit on the GO. Of course, it’s not ideal to eat in a hurry but in the crazy world, we live in its better than nothing.

You can add these melon ice pops to the list of great ice pops like the lemon and avocado ice pops, or the strawberry and hibiscus ice pops. Can’t forget about the mango and strawberry ones too. If you don’t have a mold, you can try to make this ice pops with mango and coconut.
