Add about ½ of the melon to a food processor or blender; purée. Add remaining melon to the blender; process until the mixture is completely smooth. Stir in lime juice; add Lime Simple Syrup and stir again. Pour mixture into 8-10 ice pop molds, leaving ¼" empty at the top of each mold to allow for expansion. Insert 1 ice pop stick into each mold; freeze until solid (about 2 hrs. depending on mold shape and size).

LIME SIMPLE SYRUP: Combine 2 tbsp. sugar and 2 tbsp. water in a microwave-safe glass. Microwave until hot; stir to dissolve sugar. Stir in 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice.

Tasty Tip:

  • Try this recipe with other melons, like watermelon or honeydew, instead of cantaloupe.
