Herstarr Honeydew Popsicles


This recipe was invented by none other than Svea Herstarr Pierson, when on a  hot summer week in Southern California the Pierson’s came together and got a dud honeydew melon.  Svea stepped up for the picky Pierson palette and with the  un-wasteful gene embedded in her, created these healthy, simple and totally delicious, not to mention gorgeous popsicles!  These are also amazing ice cubes for sparkling water and grapefruit soda as Ivin proved!

The beet honey syrup was a last minute idea added by Nissa who was making pickled beets in the kitchen at the same time and used the beet peels to make a pretty syrup for the coloring!

Makes 9-12 popsicles


½ honey dew melon, cold and cubed small
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 3 limes
Beet Honey Syrup*, chilled


In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds or ice cube trays, freeze and enjoy!

*Beet Honey Syrup- combine  raw beet peels from 1-2 beets with ¾ cup water and ¼ cup honey and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat  to simmer for about 5 minutes.  Take off the heat and cool completely. Strain and refrigerate!
