  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Dice the seedless watermelon into small cubes. If you’re using mint, roughly chop the leaves.
  2. Blend: In a blender, combine the watermelon cubes, coconut water, agave syrup (if using), lime juice, and mint leaves. Blend until smooth.
  3. Strain: For a smoother texture, pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any pulp. This step is optional but recommended for a clearer popsicle.
  4. Fill the Molds: Pour the blended mixture into popsicle molds, leaving a little space at the top for expansion.
  5. Insert Sticks: If your molds have slots for sticks, insert them now. If not, cover the molds with aluminum foil and poke a stick through the center of each mold.
  6. Freeze: Place the molds in the freezer for at least 4-6 hours, or until completely frozen.
  7. Unmold: To easily remove the popsicles, run the molds under warm water for a few seconds, then gently pull the popsicles out.
