Fruity Melon Pops

I just can't seem to find enough ways to make popsicles this year.  Perhaps it is the heat or the age of my angels, but whatever it is, I always seem to have a variety of popsicles in my freezer.  Here is one with the kids favorite fruit right inside.

Fruity Popsicles
1 batch of Agua de Melon or Agua de Sandia
  (Canteloupe or Watermelon Water)
1 banana
1/2 C finely diced pear
1/2 C finely diced banana
popsicle sticks
paper cups

  1. Cut the banana into 1/4 inch thick pieces.
  2. Place a popsicle stick in the center of each piece.
  3. Put banana in the bottom of a small paper cup or other mold with the stick sticking straight up.
  4. Place pieces of finely diced fruit, such as banana or pear, in the mold about 1/4 way up the cup.
  5. Put all of the cups on a metal tray.
  6. Pour Agua de Melon or Agua de Sandia in the cup about 1/4" below the edge.
  7. Put the tray in the freezer and allow to freeze completely, about 6 hours.
  8. When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and allow to sit on the counter for 1 minute.
  9. Holding the popsicle stick, remove the popsicle from the mold and enjoy!

Popsicle molds:  You may also use popsicle molds to make these.  They are sold in many stores and online, especially during the summer months.  They usually cost only a few dollars.
