Instructions

  1. POUR: Drop a lime slice and mint leaf into each mold. Stir the Watermelon Agua Fresca, then pour it into the popsicle molds, leaving a little room at the top for the popsicle mixture to expand – you won’t quite use all of the agua fresca. For a solidly watermelon colored popsicle, make sure to use fresh, just blended Watermelon Agua Fresca. For a two toned popsicle like in the photos, use leftover chilled Watermelon Agua Fresca (see notes).
  2. FREEZE: Pop the lid onto the top of the popsicle tray and carefully transfer the filled molds to the freezer. Freeze the popsicles for 60 – 90 minutes so that the mixture has partially set up, then push popsicle sticks into each mold, through the lid. Return to the freezer and freeze until solid. Carefully run each popsicle under a little warm running water to loosen them enough to remove from the mold. If you like, sprinkle the popsicles with a little coarse sea salt just before serving.

Notes

If the Watermelon Agua Fresca was blended and then allowed to chill overnight, it will separate out into two layers: the colored pulp at the bottom, and a lighter more watery layer on top. That’s ok! It will just mean your popsicles have a pretty, two toned effect instead of coming out as a solid pink. Just give your separated Watermelon Agua Fresca a stir before pouring it into the popsicle molds, so that each popsicle gets a little of both layers.
