Watermelon Lime Paletas

10 minutes (plus freezing time)
Serves 8 paletas
These Watermelon Lime Paletas are so simple to make, and extra small square Ziploc® containers make the process even snappier—they're the perfect size and shape for freezing and serving, plus the lid makes a built-in drip catcher!


  • 2
    small watermelons (about 4 cups diced)
  • 3
  • ½
    cup agave nectar, to taste


  • 1 Cut and slice the watermelon into 1 inch pieces. Reserve 1 cup of the watermelon chunks and cut them into ¼ inch pieces and set aside.
  • 2 Place remaining watermelon into a blender. Juice the limes, making sure to remove the seeds, and add the lime juice to the blender. Add the agave nectar to the blender and puree until smooth. Pass the juice through a strainer.
  • 3 Pour the juice into extra small square Ziploc® containers, leaving some room at the top of the container. Add a few pieces of fresh watermelon to each.
  • 4 Using a sharp knife, carefully cut a small slit in the center of the Ziploc® container lid. Slide a popsicle stick through the slit and place on top of the container, sealing it shut. Repeat for remaining popsicles.
  • 5 Freeze the paletas for about 4 hours or until fully frozen. To release, quickly dip the paleta into a cup of warm water, then gently pull out from the container. Enjoy immediately. The lid serves as a handy way to catch any drips!
