It’s Popsicle Week! Billy, over at Wit & Vinegar, came up with Popsicle week as an ingenious way to celebrate summer. When it’s hot outside I don’t think there’s any better way to beat the heat. There are a bunch of bloggers coming up with their takes on frozen treats all this week. I came up with a raspberry strawberry watermelon pop – it almost didn’t happen, but I’m sure glad it did.

accidental ombre…the first pop didn’t get as many fruit pieces in it.

Originally I wanted to make a bubble milk tea/boba pop. And it almost happened, it did. I even have some photos to prove it! But, alas, it didn’t taste the way I intended (I thought the pearls would stay chewy) so I melted the pops down and drank them instead. I wasn’t too sad though because I had a bunch of red fruit just begging to be blended up and frozen.

These pops are (almost) the peak of summer perfection. The berries didn’t need the sugar, but when I cut into my mini watermelon, I was shocked to see the palest melon I ever did see. It was so, so sad. I added a bit of sugar to bump up the sweetness and the sugar made me forget all of my sadness. So no, I don’t have that summer time, summer time sadness – just a bunch of lightly sweetened raspberry strawberry watermelon pops waiting for me in the fridge. Happy Summer friends!

i am cold, but i am sweet: i am raspberry strawberry watermelon pop!

Raspberry Strawberry Watermelon Popsicle Recipe
makes 6 pops, depending on popsicle mold size

  • 1/2  personal sized watermelon, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Reserve half of the raspberries and strawberries. Toss the sugar with the remaining fruit and then blend slightly, until liquid but still a bit chunky. Mix in the reserved raspberries and strawberries. Pour into molds (I use this one) and freeze until set. Enjoy!

  1. Aww too cute too eat, however I think I can get past it for such a refreshing treat.

  2. Your little smiling pop is too cute, love!

    They do look extra cute, refreshing and delicious – lol. Perfect fruit flavour combos – raspberry, strawbs and watermelon – ahh – bliss! :D

  4. What an awesome popsicle! Love the pic with the face:)

  5. I have the same zoku popsicle molds as you haha. Like your advice to blend but still leave chunks of fruit in it, those are the best in popsicles. Wonder if I could sub agave for the sugar or if that would make it freeze funny?

    hahahah omg that stealth “summertime sadness” line was the best thing to happen to me all morning. and accidental ombre, this a-MAZ-ing summer fruit combo, that POPSICLE FACE — thank goodness for steph on tired mondays! i love this so much. (also, boba popsicles sound so so amazing! i’m bummed the pearls didn’t cooperate — i’d prob eat them anyway!)

  7. Joy says:

    I, too, tried to make boba milk tea popsicles. I experimented with different sizes and found that the mini boba actually stayed chewy! http://the-cooking-of-joy.blogspot.com/2013/07/bubble-tea-popsicles.html

    I love that cute little smiley face on your pop! These sound perfect for summer! I was thinking boba pops would be great, too, but it’s sad it didn’t work out. I thought they’d be frozen chewy. I adore a good accidental ombre :)

  9. tara says:

    That sucks the boba tea pops didn’t work out, I was thinking what a clever idea it was!

    But these look really good and non-chewy boba doesn’t sound too good anyway :)

  10. haha, love the happy face on the pop! This sounds awesome :)

  11. Erika says:

    Oh I love it! This post has everything – ombré, a rocking gif, intrigue á la failed bubble tea pops and talking popsicles.

  12. heehee!!! KAWAII POPS! this looks so perfect and refreshing, steph!! and GO GIF GO! haha… xo

  13. Leah Davis says:

    Love how easy but delicious sounding these are! I will definitely be craving one today in the 90 degree Atlanta heat!

  14. These sound so delicious and refreshing! I am really into making popsicles right now, so I’ll have to try these once I eat through my current ones (AKA free up my popsicle molds). I’m excited to see what else everyone comes up with for popsicle week!

  15. Sophie says:

    Haha Lana Del Rey reference ftw! These are gorgeous! Thanks for pressing on and supplying us with a LOVELY berrylicious popsicle recipe! Mariah Carey would be proud.

  16. MAN I love watermelon! But I’ve never had a watermelon pop…I’m so into it!

  17. Oh, man. Don’t you hate it when you get disappointing watermelon? It feels like someone ruined Christmas every time. These are adorbs. Love that little smiley face! CHOMP!

  18. Emily says:

    Ooo! Nice GIF! And so cute!

  19. OMG I love love love your pictures!! And I’m so loving seeing what everyone came up with for Popsicle Week. Loving your flavor combo!

  20. noelle says:

    The ombre is really pretty! So summery, too! And now I’m going to stay up past my bedtime looking at your recipes. ;)

  21. I am SO glad these popsicles happened. I actually wish I had one right now ;) Okay, so I am not the only one who has a hard time picking a good watermelon. Sometimes I get lucky, but sometimes it turns out to be a bit bland; good to know all it needs is a bit of sugar! Btw, that face on your popsicle is too cute!

  22. I NEEEED this today. In fact, I think I shall whip them up right now :))

  23. Chris B. says:

    Two of my favorite fruits ever combined into a Popsicle?! I am definitely going to try this especially now that it almost summer time! Thanks for the great idea!

  24. This looks like fun on a stick!
