Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 6 Popsicles
- 1½ cups cantaloupe (diced small)
- 1½ cups honeydew melon (diced small)
- 3/4 cup yogurt (or 1/2 cup heavy cream)
- 4 tablespoons honey (adjust as needed)
- 2 to 4 teaspoons rose water
Dice the cantaloupe and honeydew melon into small pieces.
Spread the melon pieces in a single layer on a parchment paper lined sheet tray and freeze it.
Transfer the frozen cantaloupe to a high speed blender. Add half the yogurt (or cream), honey and rose water and blend it. Stop and stir as needed.
Adjust honey as per the sweetness of the melons.
The well blended popsicle mixture will be smooth, thick and very chilled.
Divide half of the cantaloupe popsicle mixture in 6 popsicle molds. Place the popsicle molds and the remaining cantaloupe mixture in the freezer, while you work with the honeydew melon in the next step.
Place the frozen diced honeydew melon in a high speed blender. Add the remaining yogurt (or cream), honey and rose water and blend it. Stop and stir as needed.
Divide half of the honeydew melon popsicle mixture in 6 popsicle molds over the cantaloupe layer.
Place the remaining honeydew mixture in the freezer, while you work with the cantaloupe mixture in the next step.
Layer remainder of the cantaloupe mixture in the 6 popsicle molds. Repeat the same with a final layer of honeydew melon mixture.
Place the popsicle molds in the freezer and allow the popsicles to freeze overnight.
1. Be sure to check the preparation tips mentioned above in the post.
2. The popsicle mixture should be semi-firm and thick before layering. Otherwise they may intermingle.
3. Also the mixture should be sweeter than you prefer because some of the sweet taste will be lowered after freezing into popsicles.
