Cantaloupe Strawberry Popsicles! The "perfect consistency" sorbet popsicle. Filled with all-around sweetness with no added sugar that tastes like healthy cotton candy. Only 3 ingredients. Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, paleo, and nut-free.
Every Summer, my nephew has requested we make these popsicles. This recipe has been a long time coming! I chose the cantaloupe, he chose the strawberries. A win in flavor town because the combo together pairs beautifully.
On a particular Summer day, we made this popsicle recipe and my nephew wouldn't even wait for them to freeze. He kept opening the freezer and taking spoonfuls out. Clearly kid-approved!
IS CANTALOUPE CREAMIER THAN BANANA?
Did you know that cantaloupe also makes a super creamy popsicle? When blended together cantaloupe makes an uber-creamy base for any smoothie or popsicle recipe in replace of banana! While bananas are never overlooked in the fruit department, cantaloupe is. Plus if you cannot eat bananas you now have a new fruit substitute that will blow your mind.
Use this fruit when it is in season and at its ripest, and you'll learn as I did just how wonderful melon is. The riper the fruit, the more it tastes like cotton candy! In case you didn't know, Cantaloupe is a colorful fruit providing tons of vitamins and beta-carotene. This is what makes your skin so vibrant! Colorful fruits (and veggies)!

While I am more team chocolate than team sorbet, one lick and I was sold. Naturally, I'm now team sorbet, and in one short week, these popsicles were finished. I cannot wait for you to make them!
