Parsley-Infused Watermelon Popsicles Recipe

These unique watermelon popsicles are infused with parsley for a refreshing treat on a hot summer day.


| June 2012


Three friends in New York City have greeted every summer with out-of-the-box ice pops since 2008. Their store, People’s Pops, has since featured flavors like Raspberries & Basil and Cantaloupe & Tarragon, and now they are sharing their DIY ethos in the breezy cookbook People’s Pops (Ten Speed Press, 2012). The following recipe for Parsley-Infused Watermelon Popsicles is excerpted from the chapter “Late Summer.” 

Parsley-Infused Watermelon Popsicles Recipe

• 1 2/3 pounds whole watermelon (about 1/2 of a bowling ball-sized watermelon)
• 3/4 cup (6 fluid ounces) simple syrup (see the following recipe), or more if needed
• 20 leaves fresh flat-leaf parsley

1. Peel and coarsely chop the watermelon. You should have about a quart of watermelon pieces. Purée the watermelon, leaving chunks if you like, as long as they’re small enough to pour into the molds. You should have about 2 1/4 cups (18 fluid ounces) of purée.

2. Transfer the puréed watermelon to a bowl or measuring pitcher with a pouring spout. Mix the simple syrup into the puréed watermelon until it tastes quite sweet. Chop the parsley very finely and add it to the mixture.



3. Pour the mixture into your ice pop molds, leaving a little bit of room at the top for the mixture to expand. Insert sticks and freeze until solid, 4 to 5 hours. Unmold and transfer to plastic bags for storage or serve at once. MAKES 10 WATERMELON POPSICLES
