Everyone loves Popsicles! This is a delicious popsicle recipe that just uses fruit and no added sugars!
- 4.5 cups watermelon – organic if possible!
- 3/4 cup water.
- 3/4 cup fresh squeezed organic lemon juice – optional, but recommended. You could use the pulp – blend it up, but I just use the juice, because I don’t want to mess with the smooth, shaved ice texture of the watermelon. You can save the pulp in puree form and use it in place of some of the milk in cornbread (trust me, it’s amazing).
Blend everything in a blender. Pour into non-toxic popsicle molds. Freeze. Eat and fall in love with frozen watermelon.
In case you don’t have popsicle molds you can always pop them into ice cube trays and stick sticks in there for a quick treat for the kids!
Spice your ice pops up…
If your melon is a little mealy and less sweet, you may want to add a tablespoon of organic honey, but a nice sweet melon won’t need any added sweetener.
Optional – sparkling water or soda. If you go with soda, use organic like Santa Cruz Organic Sparkling Beverage, Lemon Lime. Note that this will add some calories to your low-cal pops, but as a once-in-a-while treat, sparkling watermelon ice pops are amazing. If you decide to add soda, allow the can to sit open in the fridge for a few hours before making these pops.
