Minty Cantaloupe Popsicles

Refreshing. Tasty. Fun.  

In short, that’s the best way to describe these easy summertime popsicles!  

Puree the cantaloupe with a simple mint syrup and keep frozen until ready to enjoy. My kids devoured these and it made me smile knowing they were getting in a whole serving of fruit, all while beating the heat.

Certainly you’ll want to make more, but this recipe will make about 8 – 3 ounce popsicles. Although it may not seem like much, it’s the perfect size for little hands that struggle to keep up with the hot sun melting their treats.

For a nice surprise while enjoying your popsicle, add in a few whole mint leaves to the puree after pouring it into the mold. This will add another splash of minty sweetness to savor!
