Cantaloupe and Cream Popsicles- Paint the Gown Red

Today is a monumental day, people. One you’ve all been waiting for. Or maybe, I’m the only one who’s been waiting for it. Regardless, get excited. I’m proud to present to you something never before seen or attempted on the blog before- homemade popsicles!!!! Sure, it’s nearing the end of summer. The end of popsicle season. You’re probably super sick of these frozen treats. But you know what, I don’t even care. Sometimes you want to do something and it takes way longer to do it than you ever imagined. Maybe it’s challenging. Maybe you’re intimidated. Maybe you can’t pull the trigger on a $25 popsicle mold. Hint- it was all of these things. But after months of envy I finally have a popsicle to call my own! I’m so happy! And pretty shocked it all turned out well. The popsicles taste awesome, look pretty, AND I was able to shoot them before they melted all over the place. IS THIS REAL LIFE? So if not for the love of cream, cantaloupe or popsicles, try these suckers just for me. Ok?

Cantaloupe and Cream Popsicles- Paint the Gown Red

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Cream
  • 1 Cantaloupe
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla

Directions

Cut cantaloupe in half, remove seeds and rind and dice. Place cantaloupe pieces into a blender and puree. Combine cream and vanilla in a separate bowl. Fill popsicle molds alternating between cantaloupe puree and cream mixture. Freeze molds. After 30 minutes insert a popsicle stick into the center of each mold. Continue freezing until solid, at least 4 hours. To remove popsicles, fill a large bowl with hot water. Place molds in water for 30 seconds to loosen popsicles. Serve and enjoy!
