Wooo!! It is hot hot hot! Minneapolis is practically on fire (to me) and I need anything to beat the heat! One of my top things for cooling off is popsicles. So, this post will be all about popsicles! Enjoy, and try not to drool!

1/4 cup superfine or regular granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1 (3 1/2-lb) ripe honeydew melon, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (4 cups)
2/3 cup fresh lime juice
Dissolve sugar in water by stirring if using superfine or by heating in a small heavy saucepan if using regular granulated (then cool).
Blend half of melon and half of lime juice in a blender until smooth. Add syrup and remaining melon and lime juice and purée until smooth. Force purée through a fine-mesh sieve into a 2-quart glass measure or bowl, pressing on solids and then discarding them.
Pour mixture into molds and freeze until slushy, about 2 hours.
Insert sticks, then freeze Popsicles until completely hardened, at least 6 hours

These are my favorite not homemade popsicles. There are some other yummy flavors like pink lemonade! Check out their site, your local grocer may carry them and if not-you should ask!
Egads! Ok, I said no drooling but I can’t help it! I need to get a cool treat stat!
