Melon Madness Honeydew Popsicle ~ Ice Pop Joy

Melon Pop
pops 10

This popsicle is way more delicious than I thought I was going to be - I looked at the ingredient list (melon, mint, agave, lime. . . cilantro? Hm.) and I had my doubts, but the finished product totally put them to rest. This pop is totally refreshing, unexpected, and delicious! It is SO good on a hot summer's day, barely register's as a blip on the calorie meter, and is loaded with vitamin C. It's definitely one of James' favorite pops, and I know we will be making this one for a long time.
