Cantaloupe and Cream Lime Ice Pops

Sometimes a summer produce sale is the next best thing to heaven.  While I was out grocery shopping last week I found my store had cantaloupe for 50 cents each, so of course all of a sudden I desperately needed cantaloupe.

After taking them home, my picky toddler took a stand against trying the cantaloupe.  So, sometimes you pick your battles and sometimes you formulate a better battle plan.  I opted for the latter.  Ice pops it is.  I have mentioned before that ice pops are our 'no fail' fall back when Munchkin won't eat anything else.  Those are usually packed them with yogurt.  However, yogurt is not a great companion for cantaloupe in an ice pop.  So, I needed something thick rich and creamy.  Heavy cream won out!

I mixed in heavy cream and some honey to sweeten it up.  Then added lime to compliment to cantaloupe flavor.  This ice pop is every cantaloupe lovers dream come true.  A rich and creamy pop loaded with that cantaloupe flavor with hints of lime to wake it up!

Enjoy!



Packed with vitamin c, antioxidants  and power boosting protein, this Raspberry Lemonade Yogurt Ice Pop is the perfect summer treat!

Green Tickles:  A little taste of the tropics, these Kiwi Pineapple Popsicles are exactly what you need to beat the heat.

1/2 cup heavy cream

  2. Fifty cents each. You lucky girl! I have to get some Popsicle molds. This is getting out of control! I need an orange creamsicle at least once this summer. And I get the impression you live somewhere close to Mary. You better hurry over and get some of that salmon soon!

    1. Tricia, we live about 5 miles apart. (My salmon is safe though, because my girl, Donna, does not touch seafood.) If you weren't 2000+ miles away, I would happily share with you!!

      Donna (and Chad), I love the photograph. I would tell you it's one of the best ever, but really? How could you EVER narrow it down like that?! I do know that your popsicles are gorgeous and they taste delicious too. Thanks for the sampling last weekend. The kids and I loved them all.

  7. Love your recipe. I added 1 TAB of blue agave syrup too, as popsicles need a little syrup so they aren't rock-hard like ice. Also a pinch of sea salt. THANKS SO MUCH!!
