Cool Cantaloupe Popsicles – Sugar-Free

These cantaloupe popsicles are delicious; they are very healthy with no added sugar.  And so simple to make.  Cantaloupes’ many health benefits make it one of the fruit superfoods.  Eating a superfood in the form of a popsicle makes it fun but you are still being healthy!

Cantaloupes are a delicious, juicy fruit!  Get the health benefits of the carotene in cantaloupes and much more in your popsicles today.  They are an excellent source of carotene, and the high water content with electrolytes keeps you hydrated.  Cantaloupes are one of the alkaline foods; they help bring the pH level of the body back to a balance. As they only have 60 calories per cup it makes them great for weight loss.

Cantaloupes are a hydrating fruit, with a high percentage of water which helps the digestive system which needs to be hydrated and is good to use for detoxing and great for a cooling cantaloupe popsicle.

As I don’t use sugar for my recipes, I often use stevia which is a healthy alternative to sugar.  The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you.  The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. This is a great way to add healthy sweetness to you  The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based.  Liquid forms will be less processed.  Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.  The stevia adds some extra sweetness to these cantaloupe popsicles.

I use these Onyx Stainless Steel Popsicle Molds for my popsicle recipes:

Onyx Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold

  • Made from 18/8 stainless steel, BPA-Free

  • Designed so that one ice pop can be removed (or re-filled) at a time
  • Simply hold the mold in your hand for a moment, or run under warm water briefly, release quickly
  • Fast freeze mold is easy to use, easy to clean, and will last you a life time

The oxy stainless steel popsicle molds need sticks so I use these Norpro Wooden Treat Sticks, the package comes with 100 Pieces of Ice pop sticks so you can make lots of popsicles all summer long.

Here Are Some Other Flavour Options, You Can Try As Well:
