There is nothing better in the summer than a refreshing popsicle. Kids love them as well as adults! Homemade popsicles allow you to use fresh ingredients and play with your own flavor combinations. Watermelon and strawberries are usually consumed in abundance in my household during the summer. So I decided to combine them into a delicious frozen treat!

Most store-bought popsicles are basically a combo of highly processed sweeteners, artificial colors and flavors. And the cleaner brands you may find tend to be very expensive. Just grab yourself a popsicle mold, blend together a few ingredients and you can easily make your own instead!

What I love about these Watermelon Strawberry Popsicles:

  • Made with a few real, whole food ingredients
  • Tastes like summer 😎
  • Refreshing on a hot day
  • Absolutely delicious!!!

Watermelon Strawberry Popsicle Ingredients

You only need a few simple ingredients to make these popsicles:

  • Watermelon: Juicy, refreshing watermelon forms the base of this popsicle mixture
  • Strawberries: Sweet strawberries pair beautifully with the watermelon
  • Lime: The zest and juice of a lime round out the flavours.
  • Maple Syrup: This is optional depending on how sweet your fruit is or how sweet you like your popsicles. I usually like to add a little!

How To Make Watermelon Strawberry Popsicles

These popsicles are super easy to make. Simply…

  • Blend: Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Pour: Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
  • Freeze: The popsicles usually take about 4-6 hours to freeze but this will depend on your freezer and the size of your popsicles. I usually just freeze overnight and enjoy the next day!

Popsicle Molds

Any popsicle mold should work for this recipe. I have had my fair share of the cheap plastic ones over the years. It usually went something like this: struggle forever under hot water trying to get a popsicle to loosen and then end up with just the stick in my hand (sigh!). These are the two types of molds that I own these days and let me tell you….they are so much easier to use!

  • Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold: I have this exact one and it was so worth the purchase. Not only is it a beautiful set that produces great looking popsicles but it is also functional. 1) Seperate Popsicles: Each of the popsicles are seperate so you don’t have to pull out the whole set from the freezer just to get one popsicle. 2) Easy release: The popsicles slide out easily after 2 seconds under warm water. 3) Easy Stick Placement: Comes with covers to hold the sticks in place so no need to remember to insert them when the popsicles are half frozen. 4) Quality: I can see this set lasting me a very long time.
  • Silicone Popsicle Mold: My set looks just like these. They are a push-up “freezie” style mold that I have had for years. They are great for young kids since you don’t need to deal with the mess of dripping popsicles. I also like that the lids are attached so you don’t lose them.

    Just made these, filled 8 lolly pop moulds and the left over is in a glass with ice! Yummy, perfect (maybe with a splash of Pimms would be lovely too for a summer cocktail!) Thanks for the recipe x

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      I’m so happy that you enjoyed them! Thanks for coming back to leave a comment – it means a lot! Great idea turning the leftovers into a cocktail:)

  2. Marieke says:

    These are so refreshing – I can’t wait to have them all summer long!

    1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

      Perfect for the summer heat! Glad you enjoyed them!

      1. Patricia says:

        Can I use lemon juice instead of lime juice

        1. Vanessa | Maple + Mango says:

          Definitely but it will have a slightly different flavor. The lime zest and juice pairs really well with the watermelon but if you only have lemon on hand, you can definitely substitute. Maybe just use half the lemon though since they tend to be larger than limes.

      Good popsicle molds saved my frustration! So much easier to get the popsicle out instead of ending up with just the stick half the time lol.

    It’s not summer until strawberries appear! I have new popsicle molds and I think this may be the first recipe I make with them.
