Must-try: honeydew and mint popsicles

Candice Kumai, Honeydew and mint pops

I’ll be honest: I’ve never met a frozen dessert I didn’t love, particularly sweet and refreshing popsicles. So I’ve decided to put a contemporary (and grown-up) spin on this classic treat, combining fresh mint, honeydew melon with white wine. Not only are they super easy to whip up, but they also taste amazing.
