This Vegan Honeydew Ice Cream bar recipe is my dairy-free take on Melona Bars with just three ingredients and the signature shape you love.
Melona Bars are a classic Korean frozen dessert. They’re creamy, sweet and always hit the spot on a hot day. Every kid in Korea can recognize the classic rectangular shape of a honeydew green Melona Bar. Since I’ve been missing this nostalgic treat, I decided to make my own vegan version of honeydew ice cream.
It has all the sweet, summery flavor without any dairy. Whether you love Melona Bars or you’ve never tried one, you’re not going to want to skip this refreshing popsicle recipe.
How to Make Vegan Honeydew Ice Cream
Despite the intense melon flavor and creamy, rich texture, these bars are made with just three simple ingredients.
All you need to make your own honeydew ice cream is:
Fresh honeydew. When honeydew is in season, it’s perfectly ripe, juicy and so sweet. I always pick it up at the farmers market and this is a perfect way to use it up!
Raw cane sugar. Choose organic sugar to ensure it’s vegan.
Plant-based milk. Choose any kind of unsweetened dairy-free milk. I love soy, but you could also use almond, coconut, or oat.
Shaping Melona Bars
You can certainly eat this honeydew ice cream straight out of the container once it’s frozen. But if you want the classic nostalgic shape, all you need is a flat mold that you can cut through. I used a Medjool date container!
Simply smooth the soft ice cream into a flat layer in your mold. Cut holes in one side of the container and insert your popsicle sticks, leaving about 1 1/2 inches of space between each stick. Place the mold into the freezer. Finally, when the ice cream is fully set, cut away the mold and divide your ice cream up into cute little bars.
You can store your ice cream or bars in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month.
