Ripe summer fruit is all you need to make these sugar-free melon popsicles. Melons have a high water content for refreshment, and are relatively low in sugar, despite their sweet taste once frozen. The pop of citrus simply helps to bring the flavors to life.
Despite being frozen, these sugar-free melon popsicles are best when enjoyed within a few days. For slightly longer storage, place the cups or pops in airtight plastic freezer bags. If you don’t have paper cups or a popsicle mold, ice cube trays can be used.

If your fruit isn’t quite sweet or flavorful enough, just add a drop or two of pure stevia extract. It will help the flavors pop without overwhelming or adding sugars.
- 3 cups chopped melon (honeydew, cantaloupe or watermelon)
- 1 teaspoon lime juice or lemon juice
- Put the melon and lime or lemon juice in your blender and blend until very smooth.
- Divide mixture between ice pop molds or 4 paper cups, leaving a little room at the top for expansion.
- If using cups, place them in a baking dish for stability and insert a wooden stick in each cup.
- Freeze for 30 minutes, and if using paper cups, straighten the sticks if they have moved off center.
- Freeze for 1 more hour, or until solid.
