pop! goes my summer: watermelon chili lime pops

Another pop idea courtesy of Conor……

These pops are as simple as simple can be – lots of fresh watermelon and lime juice, a bit of sweetener and a dash (or more) of chili powder.

And they’re as refreshing as refreshing can be, perfect for these end-of-August summer days and nights.

Watermelon Chili Lime Pops
from The Etsy Blog

5 cups cubed seedless watermelon (from about 1/4 large watermelon)
Juice from two limes
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon chili powder (more or less, depending on how spicy you like)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

In a blender or food processor, puree all ingredients. Pour mixture into popsicle molds and place in freezer. Freeze till slushy, about an hour – add sticks and freeze till solid.

To release the pops, hold molds briefly under hot water.

    This flavor combination has me intrigued. I love the spicy sweet combination but never thought to try it with watermelon. On my must try list before the end of summer for sure!

      What’s nice about this recipe is that you can dial the sweet AND spicy up or down – let me know if you try it! 🙂
