Ice Pops

Leave it to Martha Stewart to come up with these incredible pops that will make you one very happy person.  It's a grown up ice pop which will let you feel like a kid again.

Honeydew and Cream Ice Pops with Pistachios
Martha Stewart Living, June 2009.

1 honeydew melon (3 lbs), halved, seeded and cut in to 1 - inch chunks
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup roasted, salted pistachios, roughly chopped

Working on batches, puree melon in a blender until smooth.  You should have about 4 cups puree.  Add honey and cream and stir to combine.
Sprinkle about 1 tsp chopped pistachios into each ice-pop mold.  Pour melon mixture into molds. Freeze until slushy, about 2 hours, add pop sticks and continue freezing until completely frozen, about 6 hours, or overnight.

I'm planning on making a honeydew ice cream later today and was looking around for inspiration. The idea of these pops sounds fantastic! Love the salty pistachios in them. Your photos are great too.
