How To Make Watermelon Popsicles

Place the pieces of watermelon in a high-quality blender and blend until smooth.

Carefully, pour the blended watermelon into the popsicle molds. Only fill them ¾ full, then add in the popsicle sticks. Place the popsicle mold in the freezer for three hours. 

Add the kiwi pieces and milk to a blender and mix until it’s smooth. 

Pour the kiwi mixture into the popsicle molds until they are full, then freeze overnight. 

Right before serving, place the popsicle mold under hot water for around 20 seconds. This will allow the popsicles to come out smoothly.

How Do I Store The Watermelon Popsicles?

The great thing about homemade popsicles is that you can leave them in the mold until you are ready to eat them. However, if you want to make multiple batches, you can remove the popsicles and store them separately. 

There are a few options; you can place them in popsicle bags, use ziplock bags, or lay them flat in a container with parchment paper, so they don’t stick. 

It’s essential to keep them tightly wrapped, so they don’t get freezer burnt. 

How Long Does Homemade Popsicles Last?

On average most homemade popsicles will last around 2 or 3 months in the freezer. It’s very important to keep them really cold and out of the doors. If you keep them in the door, they will start melting a little bit each time the door opens, and that can lead to ice crystals. They won’t last near as long.
