Lazy summer days: Honeydew Popsicles

Some days it’s all about kicking back and enjoying things at a slower pace. Looking at the clouds, letting the birds sing and just taking in some sunshine.

I have a problem doing that. I always feel like there’s something else to cook, work that needs to be done, photos to be processed, a house that needs to be cleaned or a dishes that need to be done (very very guilty of the dishes one). It’s hard to make myself sit still and unwind but I’m quickly realizing it needs to be a mandatory part of the day. The other day I found a grey hair. The next day I found its friend… and on the third day I found out that they scrump like bunnies and make babies. Not cool.

I’m not sure what my 12 step program to de-stressing is going to be or how I’m going to get there – so while I ponder that, tale a look at the clouds today and tell me what you see up there. And don’t forget to help yourself to one of these pops – my freezers getting a little crowded. 😉

Honeydew Pops

because one honeydew is far too much for just one martini


  • 1/4 – 1/2 of a fresh honey dew
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • juice of one lime


Dice the honey dew and combine all ingredients in a blender. Pulse until all large chunks are gone. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 4 hours before enjoying.

Simple, I know. What can I say, sometimes it happens…

    My kids love popcicles, and this is a perfect way to use the honeydew melons I buy, but no one seems to eat!

  2. says

    It’s like you read my mind. This is exactly what I want for lunch right now! Sooo hot! And another excuse not do those dishes, yay!! 😀

  3. says

    Oh, my. Melon-flavored anything is one of my favorite summer treats, especially in frozen form. I love these!

    And your second paragraph describes me exactly, too. I can’t ever sit still anymore. These days, any spare time feels like time I should spending on things blog-related, cooking, photographing, writing. The gray hairs have started to pop up, too. At least enjoying one of these popsicles would provide momentary bliss. :-)

    What a unique flavor for a popsicle! I know what you mean about not taking the time to slow down enough. We all need to do that move often

    Your photos are so fresh I almost feel like I can grab one of these guys off the screen! While we are still waiting for summer – we are in the midst of the annual “June Gloom”, grey and drizzly – I’m saving these for future reference!! Excellent!

    These look so refreshing. My daughter had one of those slushy honeydew drinks a few days ago and I thought it would be great as a Popsicle. You have just proven this to me.

  7. says

    Perfect timing!! I have been wanting to make popsicles so badly and I haven’t decided on which to make. I have a whole honey dew sitting on my counter untouched..i think this was meant to be!

  8. says

    yum, so re-freshing, I have been eating Popsicles like crazy this summer because I don’t feel guilty since I’ve been making them with fruit too. Great recipe :)

  9. says

    I, too, have a problem with just relaxing… I don’t know how to do that. I always feel that something needs to be done…so I’m always doing something. But, I could definitely sit on my porch and relax while eating a few of these popsicles … they sound YUMMO!

  10. says

    What pretty popsicles! I make popsicles all the time, but never work up the nerve to try photographing them! I am always scared I would be left with a puddle. You’ve done a great job!

  11. says

    Well…. I could suggest puppies. Yes, they do rather create lots more work, but I find I have to go and sit on the grass and play with them several times a day. Thankfully, the neighbors can’t see me ;-)) Housework can wait!

    What brand are your Popsicle molds? I’ve been looking everywhere for a good quality brand…..any suggestions. I can’t wait for summer to come around so I can make these. =)

      I found mine on Amazon over a year or so ago. I just typed in popsicle molds and a few really cute ones were available.
