These refreshing homemade fruit ice pops are made using just a few plant based ingredients and are an easy vegan dessert.
These homemade popsicles are incredibly easy to make and are made with delicious plant based ingredients.
I love making homemade plant based dessert recipes and this is one of my favorites.
All you'll need is a blender and a popsicle or ice pop mold. You can find one at most cooking stores or online.
Some homemade popsicle molds or kits include popsicle sticks, but if yours doesn't, be sure to pick some of those up as well.
I love these three ingredient popsicles!
Watermelon: This recipe is best when made in the summer when watermelon is in season.
Just like taking a bite of regular watermelon, it tastes the best when the melon is fresh, in season, juicy, and ripe. This watermelon dessert is no exception.
Try to find a ripe, flavorful watermelon for best results.
Lime: The lime juice in this recipe gives a bit of kick and extra flavor to these watermelon lime popsicles.
I always prefer to use freshly squeezed lime for the best possible flavor.
Agave Nectar: This is my extra sweetener of choice in these watermelon agave popsicles. It's a vegan sweetener.
Feel free to swap for coconut sugar, maple syrup, or any other sweetener.
Optional: Coconut water for a little extra flavor. I would use about one fourth of a cup.

It is a great choice if you're looking for easy popsicle recipes or easy dessert recipes for kids.
Kids notoriously love sweets and vegan sweets are no exception! Most kids love to help and teaching them how to make watermelon popsicles will make them taste so much sweeter!
To make these DIY popsicles, simply blend all ingredients together in a blender. Then you'll pour the mixture into popsicle molds and place them in your freezer.
I like to wait about 20-30 minutes until there is a small frozen layer on top of the pops before adding my popsicle sticks. This will help the sticks stay right where you place them.
Then wait a few hours until your melon pops are frozen solid, remove from the molds, and enjoy!
These melon popsicles are made using fresh fruit and just a touch of plant based sweetener.
Watermelon is packed full of great nutrients and has a bunch of potential health benefits which you can read more about in this article about top health benefits of watermelon.
The article talk about how watermelon is a great source of hydration, fiber, and contains a ton of nutrients.
All of the above makes these homemade watermelon popsicles a healthy vegan dessert. They also make these a great option if you're looking for low calorie vegan desserts as well!
If you're having a hard time removing the pops from the popsicle mold: run the mold under warm water for a few seconds and try again. Be sure not to get the actual popsicle in the stream of water.
You can omit the agave nectar and/or lime if you prefer.
I also like to add a little coconut water to this recipe sometimes to add a bit of extra flavor.
