Serves: 8
Ingredients
For Melon Spinach Otter Pops
  • ½ c. coconut milk or homemade nondairy milk of choice
  • 4 c. melon, cubed
  • 1 c. fresh spinach
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup or agave
For Cantaloupe Cardamom Otter Pops
  • 4 c. cantaloupe, cubed
  • ½ c. coconut milk or homemade nondairy milk of choice
  • 1 cardamom pod (or scant ¼ tsp. cardamom spice)
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup or agave
Instructions
  1. For either flavor, place all the ingredients into a high-speed blender and mix until completely smooth. The consistency should be easy to pour. If it is not, add more nondairy milk by the tablespoon until desired consistency.
  2. Taste test at this point and see if you need to add any additional sweetness. My melon was very ripe so I didn't need a lot of maple syrup for flavor.
  3. Place into popsicle pouches (I found mine at Cost Plus World Market) or popsicle molds. Each pouch took up approximately ½ c. of the Otter Pop liquid so if you are using popsicle molds, please note that your serving amount will be different.
  4. Freeze for a couple of hours until they set.
  5. Each flavor separately serves 8.
