Spicy Canteloupe Popsicles


I had some ripe canteloupe and no idea what to do with it. I decided to make popsicles, it sounded very refreshing. I love my canteloupe with a sprinkle of Chile Con Limon, so I decided to add it to my popsicles.

It is a refreshing taste with a little spicy zing on the back end, I loved them and will be making them again.

1 very ripe canteloupe skinned and seeds removed, cut into chunks
1/8 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp Chli Con Limon

Place into a blender and blend until thouroughly liquified, pour into molds and freeze

Canteloupe is just so refreshing, I'm dying to try these! And I love that these are spicy... a fantastic pairing.

Thanks for the comment on Chef Dennis’ site. Glad you enjoyed the recipes. Gluten free is something that's hard to find, so I really enjoy making dishes that are. Feel free to head on over to my blog for other recipes: http://www.athoughtforfood.net.

Best,
