Desert Island Pops

A sports drink freezes into an icy blue sea. The treetops are a blend of ripe honeydew melon and simple syrup, frozen in plastic molds for making candy. Eat the top first, then push up the bottom or pull it out of its plastic cup by the stick.

  • Yield: Makes about 1 dozen

  1. Fill pyramid molds with honeydew syrup. Freeze about 30 minutes, until mixture starts to harden, then insert a wooden pop stick into each pop. Freeze until hard.

  2. Fill each 3-ounce cup with the blue drink. Place cups on a small metal baking pan; freeze until almost frozen, about 50 minutes. Unmold each frozen pyramid pop, and insert its pop stick into an almost frozen blue base. Freeze until entire pop is frozen solid; overnight is best.

Cook's Notes

If you don't have pyramid molds for the treetops, any one-quarter-cup mold may be used for the tops of these pops. The bottom is a 3-ounce white plastic bathroom cup.
