Creamy cantaloupe popsicles are the tasty summer treat you didn’t know you needed. With 3 simple ingredients and a fast process for making them the hardest thing to do is wait for them to freeze.
Creamy cantaloupe popsicles are a delicious summer treat for those ripe melons. While fresh melons are always delicious sometimes they get a little too ripe to eat or you simply can’t finish the whole thing. In cases like that, making popsicles out of them helps to give them an entirely new chance at life.
Not only that but what kid doesn’t love a good popsicle on a hot day? These ones are a little healthier thanks to the fresh fruit inside, but we don’t have to tell them that!
Creamy Cantaloupe Popsicles
One of my favorite parts of summer is all of the fresh fruit that is available. I found this extremely simple recipe, realized it only had 3 ingredients, and decided to give it a try. We all loved these popsicles, and I love the fact that they don’t have a bunch of dyes, preservatives, and other hard to pronounce ingredients! This recipe is basic enough that I think you could probably swap other types of fruit for the cantaloupe or even try a combination of fruits.
Can I use half and half or regular milk?
Yes, you could. But, the popsicles won’t be as creamy as they would be with heavy cream and you might find that they have a slightly different texture and taste.
Can I try this with a different melon?
Absolutely! Imagine how great this popsicle recipe would be with honeydew melon! Even a mixture of the two could result in a tasty summer treat to help beat the heat!

What can I add to make these popsicles even better?
Adding a little vanilla yogurt into the popsicle molds can make these popsicles even tastier. With the variation in flavors and colors it’ll be hard for the kids to resist! Adding in a little mint or lime zest could also be a fun away to make these ice pops more exciting.
How long are homemade cantaloupe popsicles good for?
These popsicles are frozen and can last almost indefinitely. However, for best results I recommend eating within 3 months to avoid freezer burn or loss of delicious flavor.
