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

Ingredients:

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

Preparation:

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. You don’t have to say another word – I’ll help you with these.

  3. I have the same problem unwinding, lady…

    THESE LOOK AMAZING!!! WANT!

  4. Incredibly easy but look incredibly good and I am sure they are incredibly tasty

  5. 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!! :D

  6. These are so perfect for a hot day! I seriously need a popsicle mold.

  7. I have the same issue with stress!! These popsicles are such a great idea and I love the color!!

  8. What a nice colour of these popsicles. Loved honey dew in them!

  9. Definitely trying this on my kiddos sometime – buzzed btw :)

  10. 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. :-)

  11. Mmm, a delicious way to eat Summer fruit. I definitely need to pick up a popsicle mold.

    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

  13. Such a pretty color! And a flavor I have never seen in a popsicle before!

  14. Oh yum! What a pretty color too! PS Grey hair ack haha! Getting old sucks :P

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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 :)

  19. 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!

  20. OH – they look so good!!!

  21. These look fab. I’ve seen a lot of awesome popsicle recipes out there recently — need to get me some molds! Love the color of these, too.

  22. Love that color…I am enjoying all of these popsicle recipes that are floating around. Yours are so creative, honeydew melon is wonderfully refreshing!

  23. 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!

  24. Love these pops! I have some sliced honeydew sitting in my fridge, and it will soon find its way to the freezer. Thanks for the inspiration! And what lovely photos. :)

  25. Oh wow! I didn’t know popsicles are so easy to make. I just bought an ice cream maker and I love it. Now I need to buy popsicle molds. My kids will love this. Thanks for the recipe – I bookmarked. :-)

  26. 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!

  27. These look like they should be in the freezer section of a gourmet grocery store. Very nice!

  28. this is exactly why i love sorbet. simple. fresh cold. I love honeydew. I know I’ll make these

    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.

  30. Oh wow. This sounds and looks delicious!!
    Where can I get those molds? I haven’t been able to find them :(
