Ingredients
  • 4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 15 oz. can full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp. raw local honey (divided)
  • Zest and juice from 1 lime
  • 10 oz. frozen blueberries
  • ½ cup water
Instructions
  1. Add watermelon and mint to a blender and process until smooth. Set aside in a small bowl (with a pouring spout if you have one).
  2. In a second small bowl, whisk the coconut milk with the lime zest, lime juice and 1 tbsp. honey.
  3. Add the blueberries, water and 2 tbsp. honey to a blender and process until smooth. Set aside in a third bowl.
  4. In any order you like, SLOWLY fill the popsicle molds ⅓ full with each combination. In a ¾ cup popsicle mold, this equals a scant ¼ cup for each.
  5. Place the popsicle sticks in and freeze for 4 - 5 hours (or overnight).
  6. Run the popsicle mold under warm water to release the contents and enjoy!
Notes
I added the watermelon, coconut and then the blueberries for what seemed to be the best swirl.

This recipe makes enough for about 10 - 12 popsicles based on the size of your molds.
