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.

Vegan Honeydew Ice Cream (Vegan Melona Bars)

  • Author: Remy Park


Vegan, dairy free honeydew ice cream made with 3 simple ingredients, reminiscent of Melona bars. Enjoy in nostalgic Melona bar shape or by the spoon.


Units Scale
  • 4 cups honeydew chunks
  • 1/3 cup raw cane sugar*
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plant milk (I used soymilk)


  1. To a blender, add honeydew chunks, raw cane sugar and unsweetened plant milk. Blend until completely smooth, and adjust to taste. Honeydew will vary in sweetness, so add more sugar as needed.
  2. Pour your mixture into an ice cream or sorbet maker and allow to thicken. If enjoying as spoonable ice cream, you can stop here!

To shape into classic melona bar form:

  1. Once your ice cream is ready, prepare a small, square mould (I used a plastic medjool date container) and add your mixture into the pan. Flatten and smooth with a spatula.
  2. Cut holes into one side of the mould, insert popsicle sticks through the holes and freeze until solid.
  3. To shape, cut and break down the mould and discard. Slice your popsicle shapes and shave off the sides to make a nice rectangle.

    If you don't have a ice cream/sorbet maker can this still be made?
