Honeydew, Mint + Cucumber Pregnancy Pops

It's official...Summer is in full-effect and my pregnancy is too! I love anything cold and frozen: ice water, slushies, popsicles, etc. you name it!  

My favorite new cold treat: honeydew, mint + cucumber popsicles. So clean, refreshing and guilt-free. I wasn't sure if my kids would think they were amazing, but they LOVED THEM! 

PREGNANCY POP RECIPE

makes 8-10 dixie cup size popsicles

1 honeydew melon, seeds removed and flesh scooped out

6 slices of cucumber {about 1/4 cup}

5-8 large sprigs of mint

squirt of your favorite sweetener {I chose agave, you can use stevia, too}

note: You'll need a popsicle maker or dixie cups, like I used, and popsicle sticks. If you use other popsicle molds, then this recipe might yield less popsicles. 

In a high speed blender combine all of the above ingredients EXCEPT mint until super smooth. No chunks. Add the mint leaves and blend on low until well combined. 

Pour mixture into dixie cups until full. Store in freezer for about 20 minutes or until icy. Then, you will want to insert the popsicle sticks in the cups {they will remain upright}. Let freeze for at least 6 hours {overnight} before eating. 

I had a bunch of leftover mint and cucumber after making the popsicles. So I chopped it all up and threw it in my water. I reused this water mixture for about 5-6 refills. It was so hydrating and refreshing! No lemon. Just cucumber and mint and ice! Mmmmmmm. Try it. 

Enjoy the Summer! It will go super fast! Stay hydrated and healthy!
