Chile pepper gives this frozen pop recipe an irresistible (but optional) blast of heat. Jalapeño intensifies the green of the honeydew, but a pinch of ground Aleppo chile can let you feel the burn in a more sophisticated-tasting way. Source: EatingWell Magazine, July/August 2016

  • Combine melon, honey, lime zest, lime juice and jalapeno to taste in a food processor. Puree until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, then transfer to a 4-cup measuring cup. Stir in enough limeade to yield 2 1/4 cups.

  • Freeze in six 3-ounce (or similar-size) pop molds until solid, about 6 hours. To unmold, dip the forms into warm water for 10 to 20 seconds. If necessary, use a table knife to break the vacuum and pry the pops loose.


Make Ahead Tip: Freeze for up to 1 month.
