I have dabbled with sesame in sweet dishes before, and this recipe stemmed from wanting a watermelon frozen treat that looked like it had little watermelon seeds inside. —Emily | Cinnamon&Citrus
4-6 popsicles (depending on your molds)
of a large watermelon, fruit cut away from the rind
black sesame seeds
toasted sesame oil
small pinch of salt
In This Recipe
Place your watermelon (seeds excluded) into a blender and blend into juice. You can alternatively use a juicer for a smoother final product depending on your preference.
Make a simple syrup by combining the sugar, water, and black sesame seeds in a small saucepan and bringing to a boil, stirring just until the sugar dissolves. Take off the heat and add the toasted sesame oil. Let the simple syrup cool to room temperature.
Combine the watermelon juice and simple syrup with a pinch of salt and freeze in popsicle molds, about 4 hours to completely set. Enjoy!
