Picture of Sour Watermelon Ice Pops

Summer is here! With Summer comes two things. One I dislike which is the Heat. :( The other which I adore is watermelon season! (YAY!) This recipe came into being on a hot summer day years ago when I was inspired by Bhawya's HOMEMADE SOUR PATCH WATERMELON instructable. I had ordered way to much citric acid online and finally it had arrived unfortunately so had a heat wave. *pause for dramatic effect* Well there was no way I was turning on my stove top to boil anything that was for sure. So gummies were out of the question. However I still wanted to sate my desires for sour watermelony goodness. Inspiration struck and sour watermelon ice pops were born. These ice pops only have two ingredients and have no added sugar! So if you want to beat the heat with some tart frozen treats read on.

Step 1: Tools and Ingredients

Picture of Tools and Ingredients


  • Blender with tamping stick (or wooden spoon)
  • Cutting board
  • Large knife
  • 1/4 teaspoon or metric equivalent measuring spoon!
  • Ice pop or Popsicle molds
  • A freezer with enough space for your molds
  • A pint glass if you have molds like mine


  • Watermelon
  • Citric Acid( I got way too much but it doesn't go bad so...)
Sounds like an interesting frozen treat!
Thanks. The flavor is very reminiscent of a hard watermelon candy. If I froze it in ice cubes I could probably make a slushy like your watermelon slushy. I guess I'll have to do a mashup one of these days.
