Melon Ice Candy

Recipe by  

"A frozen treat filled with shredded cantaloupe and milk, this makes a great treat on a hot summer day! Typically stored in long, thin plastic bags, this is probably the closest Filipino equivalent to the American Otter Pop (but could also be placed in molds as well)."

What a refreshing treat for the whole family! I used sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated milk, didn't use the sugar and used 1/2 the water. Poured it into popsickle molds for my daughter. Turned out to be a great snack without too much sugar.

I used to make this all the time as a little girl back when I lived in the PI. Thanks for the reminder. I'm gonna have to make it again!

This was pretty good. I didn't have molds so I used 3 oz. dixie cups with short popsicle sticks in them, and ripped off the paper when ready to eat. The pops were awkward to eat, so using a bowl underneath while eating it made it ok. A quarter recipe made 13 dixie cups.

I am not a cantaloupe fan, but my family thinks these are great. However, I can only imagine the recipe's originator must have ice pop molds that each are the size of a paint can, because I filled my 18 Tupperware molds and 35 of the 3 oz. paper cups before I ran out. Two quarts of water and four pounds of cantaloupe is a LOT.
