Musk Melon Ice Lollies
Ice Lollies / Ice Pops can be a mini version of popsicles.A month back when I was searching for interesting popsicle ideas, happened to see a picture of these ice lollies and got tempted by the cute look of it.They had used ice trays for freezing ice lollies and that seemed like a great idea.So immediately made these with musk melon / cantaloupe.These are very cute for serving kids, you can make use of any fruit juice to make these lollies.As I had 2 big muskmelons waiting, I used them up.

My Notes:

  • You can use papercups for freezing too.If you have popsicle moulds then use them.But usually lollies are mini version of popsicles so I used icetrays.
  • Freezing for atleast 8 hrs is required but I kept it overnight.
  • For easy demoulding - show the popsicle moulds in warm water, then pull the stick out slowly to get the ice pops clean.
  • Adjust sugar according to the sweetness of the fruit.
  • I used half of it for making these lollies and used the other half for juicing it.
