    Yield:

    popsicles

    Units: US | Metric

    MOJITO LAYER

    WATERMELON LAYER

    Directions:

    1. 1
      MAKE THE MOJITO LAYER: In a blender, puree all of the ingredients except the xanthan gum on high speed until smooth and bright green, about 30 seconds. Pour into a bowl.
    2. 2
      Slowly sprinkle the xanthan gum over while quickly whisking, until slightly thickened and foamy. Let rest for 15 minutes, then skim any foam.
    3. 3
      Pour 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mojito layer into eight 3-ounce popsicle molds or paper cups. Freeze until almost firm, 1 hour. Poke a popsicle stick into the center of each.
    4. 4
      MAKE THE WATERMELON LAYER: In another bowl, combine all of the ingredients except the xanthan gum.
    5. 5
      Slowly sprinkle the xanthan gum over while quickly whisking, until slightly thickened. Let rest, then skim.
    6. 6
      Carefully add 1 1/2 tablespoons of the watermelon layer to the mojito layer in the molds. Freeze until almost firm, 1 hour.
    7. 7
      Pour the remaining mojito mixture on top and freeze until almost firm, 1 hour.
    8. 8
      Top with the remaining watermelon layer and freeze until firm, 2 hours. Unmold and serve.
    9. 9
      NOTES: The thickening agent xanthan gum is available at many supermarkets and on amazon.com. Simple Syrup: In a saucepan, simmer 4 ounces of water with 1/2 cup of sugar over moderate heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes; let cool. Refrigerate for up to 1 month. Makes about 6 ounces.
