Sometimes you just want a little ice cold treat without the guilt. I know I find myself tempted to reach for some ice cream or a cookie every single week at some point, but then feel so bogged down and filled with junk food. I knew there had to be some alternative solution that is both sweet and easy to grab right out of the freezer when my sweet tooth itches…

Enter these Cantaloupe and Cucumber Pops! These easy, delicious popsicles are naturally sweetened with honey, and the best part is that they are chock full of fruits and veggies for a nutritious, guilt-free after dinner treat. Though spring still feels like it’s far away, the season is approaching faster than we think and  these ice pops are sure to become your new favourite once the warm weather hits!

I was so excited to partner with Half Your Plate for this recipe because I really identify with their food philosophy: filling half your plate with fruits and vegetables! I truly believe in making seasonal produce the star of every dish I make, and I love that Half Your Plate is a Canadian-run organization that is committed to improving fruit and vegetable consumption among Canadians.

These Cantaloupe and Cucumber Pops are sooooo easy to make and feel like a lightly sweetened cold-pressed juice in a popsicle. If you don’t have popsicle moulds already, I have some linked on my Shop page – they are reasonably priced and are a great way to inject a little bit of creativity into your kitchen.

Cantaloupe and cucumber are coming into season as spring is right around the corner. I absolutely can’t wait for all the other goodies that are seasonally available in Ontario come spring and summer. We are so lucky to be surrounded by all sorts of delicious, fresh fruits and veggies, and I definitely miss visiting farmer’s markets in the winter.

    This is actually pretty brilliant. When you have kids, it is a struggle to get them to eat their veggies, so I have to be tricking them with smoothies and other things. They absolutely love popsicles, so this would be a really good way to get more veggies and all those good stuff into their system. As you said sometimes you want a “little ice cold treat without the guilt.” The Kids could ask for pospicles and I would tell them eat as much as you want guys! 🙂

    Okay, I’m not going to lie: I’m not a huge fan of cucumbers or cantaloupe, but these looks so good that I might have to give them a try. 🙂 Definitely saving this for summer! Thanks Taylor. 🙂

    PS: I just read that you’re a journo grad too! How awesome. 😀

    I’m definitely going to try this come summertime! Cucumber is such a fun ingredient! I once made a celery sorbet. That was pretty awesome too 😉
