Honeydew Melon Berry Pops

Fruit Pops are very popular around here, during the summer time of course.  Although, in Florida, summer is about 8  months out of the year! 
At the farmer’s market last week, I loaded up on fruit and berries. I absolutely love farmer’s market produce, it does not compare to store bought produce. The taste is so much more flavorful and the cost is so much less.  Not to mention that its all from local farms.
Well, I got some great honeydew melon, sugar-baby watermelons, big beautiful raspberries, blueberries and so much more. I was using all my fruit and berries left and right. The little man got yogurt with fresh berries every morning and I made these pops. You just thought that my Cherry Limeade pops were awesome…these pops rub their noses in how much better they are!

Ingredients:
1/2 of a medium honeydew melon
1 tbs sugar (I prefer sugar substitute)
1 tbs water

3/4 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raspberries

Directions:
1. Scoop out the meat of the honeydew melon with an ice cream scoop or a melon baller into a blender or a food processor.

2. Heat up water until hot and add to sugar. Stir and let the sugar melt in the water. Pour the sugar water into the melon. Puree the melon.

3. Drop some blueberries into half of the ice pop molds and raspberries into the other half of the molds. Slowly pour the melon puree into the ice pop molds. Gently shake the molds and tap it on the counter to make sure the puree goes all the way to the bottom and there are no air pockets.

4. If using wooden popsicle sticks: cover the ice pop molds with saran wrap, tightly. Gently poke a hole in the saran wrap with a toothpick. Put in the popsicle sticks.

5. Freeze for at least 4 hours.

Enjoy!!
