Blueberry Watermelon Hibiscus Ice Pops Recipe
Blueberry Watermelon Hibiscus Ice Pops Recipe – sweet and refreshing, perfect for a summer snack.
Happy Monday guys! How was your weekend? Hibiscus Ice Pops anyone?
Mine was nice and quiet! My husband was out of town for work. I had planned to do so many things around the house and was only able to finish just a third of that I wanted.
Well, this happens to me all the time, because my “to do” lists are extremely long!
What I’m happy about is that I made these Blueberry Watermelon Hibiscus Ice pops.
Growing up I was never a huge fan of ice cream, but I did love popsicles. Especially the fruity kind. I sometimes make creamy ice pops, but the icy, sweet and fruity ones, made with juice are my favorite.
These are the perfect homemade snack for a hot summer day. I’ll definitely make them again!
In these pops I used watermelon juice, fresh blueberries, and hibiscus tea.
I make sure I always have watermelon at home during summer. It is one of my favorite seasonal fruits and my dog loves it, too. I’ve found that it tastes great when frozen, like in these popsicles.
I like to make my own tea with dried hibiscus flowers, rather than using tea bags. It has more intense flavor and color. I used to love hot hibiscus tea, but recently started making iced tea with it and it tastes refreshing! It is rich in Vitamin C, minerals and antioxidants.
Hope you enjoy this simple summer treat!

Hand me 4 of these please. It is hot, hot, HOT here today and I could just devour these. They look almost too pretty to eat though.
My to-do lists are always so long, too! But I think these pops would make me feel a lot better about not getting everything accomplished. I just love the flavor of these, Mira! I’ve never used hibiscus petals before, so I’m loving this creative twist. And these pops are such a gorgeous color, too! Love it!
Mira, these popsicles look absolutely perfect! Love that gorgeous, deep red color. Such a great idea to combine blueberry, watermelon and hibiscus into one pop. 🙂 Have a great week! Pinning this! 🙂
I love the combination of flavors here, Mira! I’ve never used hibiscus before but I’m stoked to give it a try!!
I bet these are as tasty as they are pretty. I could eat them all summer.
So glad you had a nice quiet weekend, Mira… although I’m not sure how I feel about you having a to-do list. 😉 Those things are over-rated. Plus you are pregnant – you should be relaxing!!! <3
LOVE these ice pops!! I just got a popsicle mold last week and have been popsicle-ing all the things. I can't wait to make these beauties!!! I just love all the flavors you have going on here! Refreshing, gorgeous and absolutely perfect for summer! Pinned! Cheers, dear!
It’s not really very hot here, but I would love to have at least 3-4 of these beautiful blueberry ice pops. Pinning!
I tend to be the same way when it comes to lists and end up with too much to do! But at least you ended up with these delicious ice pops! I love the flavors in these and they’re soooo beautiful too.
Our weekends are always jam-packed but I would totally ignore my to-do list if I had these popsicles! They’re so gorgeous, Mira! Love the refreshing flavors too!
These pops are so pretty, Mira, and the flavors sound amazing! I’ve never tried hibiscus, and think it sounds wonderful!
delicious flavors Mira, this looks like the perfect summer treat! Would love to give it a try 🙂
I think you’ll like these Manali!
The color of these ice pops is so gorgeous! And I Iove the whole blueberries! What a wonderful and perfect summer treat!
We are going through about 2 watermelons per week, we love it so much. And my 2 year old granddaughter is on a kick where all she wants to eat are blueberries. These are perfect for us. They look so refreshing!
These popsicles are SO pretty, Mira! Watermelon and berries are my EVERYTHING right now and I absolutely love the use of hibiscus in these!
Those look too pretty too eat (although my kids would probably have no compunction about doing it, anyway.) Stopping by from Monday Madness!
Wow they look so delicious, I am drooling here!!! Pinning, thank you so much for sharing!
I could eat popsicles all day on a hot summer’s day! I love it when they are homemade and full of healthy ingredients. The whole blueberries in here are wonderful!
I’m so excited – I just happen to have hibiscus petals! I never pick them up but I did recently because I think they’re just so pretty! Now I know what to do with them! Love this recipe, Mira! So tasty and refreshing!!
Thanks Annie! You can also make iced tea with them, if you happen to like the flavor!
Frozen watermelon is the BEST. I had no idea dogs would be into it, too! And as for those long to-do lists…do NOT get me started. So tough to get to everything!
While I love ice cream more than life itself, popsicles are another love. These are gorgeous!
These sound so refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day. I’m assuming the hibiscus tea adds a floral note to the popsicles, which sounds absolutely delicious to me!
These look amazing!
