Summer Fruit Popsicles Made With Melon And Watermelon

fruit popsicles


In summer, what could be fresher, better and more colorful than a fruit popsicles?
I like to use seasonal ingredients to create simple recipes. I love traditional Bolognese and Romagna cuisine, but I don’t eat tortellini everyday.

What I offer you is a treat that seems more a sorbetto then a popsicles even if made only with fresh fruit (and water) and no sugar.

They only take a few minutes to blend the pulp and half an hour of patience, waiting for the right consistency of the fruit popsicles.

Fruit popsicles are a true summer ode to the freshness.

They are perfect for a garden merenda, served on a dish, on a bed of ice cubes!
But I serve these popsicles yet at the end of a meal, like fresh and sweet treat, or during the dinner like an Italian sorbetto. In this case, do not use the chocolate drops.

Versatile, healthy and so fresh!

Buona cucina, xo

Italian Melons

Well, I use cantaloupe melon variety, but you take your sweet fav. In Italy there are many (summer) melon varieties. The producer regions are Sicily, Campania, Puglia, Lazio and, in the north, Veneto and Emilia-Romagna. In Emilia-Roamgna, where Bologna is the capital and where I’m living, there is a famous typical variety called melone di San Matteo della Decima that Italian Ministry of Agriculture’s includes in the traditional food products list.
