Homemade Popsicles, Perfect for Summer!


I recently bought some really cute popsicle molds at 5 Below and finally cleared enough room in my freezer to try them out! When the summer heat kicks in and you are looking for a healthy, cool snack, try these delicious treats:

Watermelon-Berry Popsicles (makes 6)

  • About 1 lb of seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1/4 lb strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 T lime zest
  • 1 T fresh lime juice
Equipment:
  • Popsicle molds

Working in batches, puree watermelon in a blender. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl (discard solids).

Puree strawberries. Add sugar, zest and juice and pulse until sugar has dissolved. Add to bowl with watermelon juice and stir to combine.

Pour mixture into popsicle molds.

Freeze until solid, 2 & 1/3 to 3 hours.

*Tip- to remove the pops from the mold, run the mold under warm water for a few seconds.

Enjoy!
