Cook Time: 10 minutes

Healthful and refreshing, these ice pops combine the ripe flavors of summer watermelon with a hit of fresh basil. Taste the fruit juice before you freeze it; if it’s a little on the tart side, stir in a small amount of agave syrup to boost the sweetness.


  • Leaves from 8 fresh basil sprigs
  • 1/2 seedless baby watermelon, peeled and flesh cut into large chunks


Juice the basil and watermelon in an electric juicer according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Stir the juice with a spoon. Working in batches, pour the juice into the wells of an ice pop mold and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Makes 8 pops.
