Fight Imperial Heat with Rebel Alliance Chili-Lime Melon Pops

Rebel against the last days of summer heat.

We’re heading into the final days of summer and to make the dog days last as long as possible, take advantage of fresh melon by serving it up in the shape of an Alliance Starbird.

These chilled pops are the perfect way to beat the heat. Take the Phoenix to the next level by adding a bit of lime and a punch of chili to bring out the sweetness of the summer fruit.


Rebel Alliance Chili-Lime Melon Pops

Seasoning ingredients:

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

You’ll need:

1 watermelon

1 Rebel Alliance symbol template

Popsicle sticks

Limes, quartered


In a small bowl mix together the chili powder and the salt. Set aside.

Slice the watermelon into thick 1-inch slices. Use the template and a paring knife to cut out the symbols.

Place a popsicle stick halfway into the symbols. Squeeze some lime juice on top and sprinkle the chili mixture to taste. Now you’re ready to rebel.
