These Watermelon Berry Popsicles (with an optional chocolate drizzle) hit the spot on a hot, sunny day! They're gluten free, vegan and just five simple ingredients.
A few weeks ago, we tested the recipe for these frozen watermelon margaritas and ended up with two whole frozen diced watermelons in the freezer.
We could barely shut the freezer and there are only so many margaritas one can drink on a weekday at noon. (Right??) After a bit of quick thinking, we decided to whip up a batch of popsicles, and thus this recipe was born!
We both love making homemade popsicles - they're so easy to whip up and they make for a perfect, refreshing summer snack. I particularly love grabbing one from the freezer after a hot summer run. You can load up your fruit popsicles with just about anything you have on hand.

For something more hydrating, we opt for coconut water. Or for a pop that tastes more like dessert, you can't go wrong with a classic chocolate fudgesicle.
And of course, there are plenty of options for add-ins: superfood powders, fresh berries, coconut flakes, chia seeds or whatever else your heart desires. Finally, don't forget about toppings - we're partial to a liberal chocolate drizzle.
These watermelon berry popsicles really couldn't get much easier. All you need is watermelon, mixed berries (fresh or frozen), a squeeze of lime juice and a touch of sweetener.
We opt for raw honey or agave - they both work well in this recipe. You could also use maple syrup, or you could leave the sugar out altogether. They're still pretty naturally sweet!
Finally, the key to perfect homemade popsicles is a great popsicle mold. We use a stainless steel mold and it has never failed us. The easiest way to remove these pops is to run the mold under warm-ish water for just a few seconds.
Alternatively (if you're more patient), leave them out a room temp for 10 minutes to soften up before removing.

There's nothing better than a refreshing, healthy popsicle on a hot summer day. These Watermelon Berry Popsicles (with an optional chocolate drizzle) really hit the spot! They're gluten free, vegan and just five simple ingredients.
- 3 cups frozen or fresh watermelon, cubed
- 1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries
- 1 cup frozen or fresh cherries
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 2 tsp honey or agave
- Optional: ¼ melted dark chocolate chips
- Blend watermelon, raspberries, cherries, lime and honey or agave until completely smooth.
- Pour into popsicle molds leaving a bit of room at the top (so they can expand) and freeze for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
- Let soften for a few minutes before removing from popsicle molds.
- Optional: drizzle popsicle with melted dark chocolate before eating. The chocolate will harden almost immediately!
If using stainless steel molds, you can quickly remove popsicles by running the mold under warm water for a few seconds.
