Recipe: Healthy Ginger-Cantaloupe Popsicles!

It's been a hot and muggy couple of weeks here in Columbus so any recipe that can help keep us cool is a win in my book! This DIY ginger cantaloupe popsicle recipe from Terra's Kitchen is the delicious, refreshing treat that we all need in our lives. It's a healthy, fruit-filled snack that is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth – and the best part is they are completely guilt-free!  


3 slices of fresh ginger
1/4 cup sugar
1 ripe cantaloupe
Sliced strawberries (optional)
Popsicle forms and popsicle sticks


1. In a small sauce pan, add the sugar and 1/2 cup water over medium heat. Cook just until the sugar has melted. Remove from heat and drop in ginger. Set aside until cooled. (Remove ginger when ready to use!)
2. Slice cantaloupe in half and scoop out seeds. Spoon cantaloupe flesh into a blender. Blend until smooth.
3. Add just enough of the cooled ginger syrup to sweeten as desired. Save the remaining syrup for another use.
4. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. For a variation, push a few sliced strawberries down into the popsicle molds before freezing.
