Cantaloupe Ice Pops

By sexyswamprat

Ingredients
  • 1 small cantaloupe

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 tablespoon finely slivered fresh mint leaves

  • 1/4-1/3 cup lemon juice depending on the sweetness of the melon

Directions
  1. Cut cantaloupe in half; remove and discard the seeds. Scoop out the flesh and transfer to a food processor. Puree until smooth; measure 1 1/3 cups puree and transfer to a small bowl.

  2. Pour water into a small saucepan, add sugar and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in mint and immediately remove from the heat. Let stand for 1 minute.

  3. Stir the mint syrup and lemon juice into the cantaloupe puree in the bowl. Pour the mixture into 8 individual frozen-treat molds or small (2-ounce) paper cups.

  4. Freeze until beginning to set, about 1 hour. Insert frozen-treat sticks and freeze until completely firm. Dip the molds briefly in hot water before unmolding.
