Place 4 cups cubed Mexican papaya (from about 2 pounds fruit) in a food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and whisk in ¾ cup water, 3 Tbsp. sugar, 2 Tbsp. honey, 1 Tbsp. lime juice, and ¼ tsp. salt.
To finish, pour the mixture into molds and insert sticks. If using cups, freeze until partially frozen and slushy, about 30 minutes, then insert sticks. Freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.
