Paletas de Sandía (Watermelon Popsicles)

  • Yield : 16 cubes
  • Prep Time : 5m
  • Cook Time : 24:00 h
  • Ready In : 24:05 h

When I was a little girl my grandma worked out a daily deal with the “paleta man” (ice cream man who pushed a cart) where she’d give him ice water and he could sit on our porch to rest and in return he’d give me a free popsicle. It was pretty awesome, but on days that he didn’t come by we always had a backup of these ice tray popsicles.

You can totally make them in fancy popsicle molds, but in a pinch these ice cube trays work just fine.

Watermelon nutrition:


  • 2 cups seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/8 cup sugar (optional)


Step 1

Add ingredients to a blender and blend until liquefied.

Step 2

Pour into an ice cube tray and cover with a large piece of foil. After, I usually gently press down on the foil to get the indentation of the tray. Put toothpicks in the middle of each cube and freeze overnight.
