Deliciously refreshing homemade frozen melon and raspberry pops!
To make your own popsicles is quick and very easy, you only need a little water, some sugar and good fruits.
Besides, homemade popsicles made with fresh fruits taste so much better than the store-bought ones that are generally made out of syrup or concentrate …
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. (124 g) granulated white sugar
2/3 cup (150 g) water
Juice of 1 or 2 lemons according to taste
16 oz. (450 grams) of fresh melon
1/2 cup (110 g)
Place the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to boil. Let the mixture boil for one more minute. Remove from heat and let cool.
Add the lemon juice to the syrup
Next, puree the melon into a food processor or blender and pour into a jug
Next, puree the raspberries, strain them to remove the seeds and pour into a jug
Distribute the syrup proportionally into the two jugs, also according to tartness of the raspberries, stir well
Fill up your molds as per the number of layers you want to achieve, freeze completely (about 1 hour 30) before adding a new layer
Do not fill molds up to the brim because the liquid will expand a little while freezing
If your fruits are sweet enough, you can easily reduce the sugar input (or replace it by stevia), do know though that adding sugar will enhance the taste of your fruit popsicles and give them a softer texture, whereas adding less or no sugar will give sort of an « ice cuby » texture to your sorbets.
