Fresh Watermelon Pops

Summer isn’t over quite yet even though the internet (this blog included) is FULL of fall fashion, back to school, and end of summer everything. Well, it’s still hot has Hades here in MA so I “cooked up” a little refreshing frozen treat for us to eat while it’s still uncomfortably hot! These Fresh Watermelon Pops are so easy to make and can be customized to your taste – you can make them sweeter, mintier, throw in some blueberries – whatever you like! Here’s how I made ours…

fresh-watermelon-pops-4Cube your watermelon and remove all the seeds – this is pretty tedious, but you don’t want the seeds blended into the pops!

 

fresh-watermelon-pops-3Blend the watermelon in a blender until is liquifies, then pour through a sieve to remove any remaining seed remnants and pulpy clumps.

 

fresh-watermelon-pops-8Pour the watermelon liquid back into the blender and add any other elements to the pops – I added very finely chopped mint and the juice of one lemon. The watermelon I used was extrememly sweet so I decided to not add any sweetner, but if you do, I recommend either simple syrup or honey.

 

fresh-watermelon-pops-7Pour the watermelon liquid into your pop molds. We are not fancy and ended up using tiny Dixie cups that I put in a baking pan.

 

fresh-watermelon-pops-6Freeze for maybe an hour or so until the pops have solidified just a bit.

 

fresh-watermelon-pops-5Stick your Popsicle sticks in or as I used, lollipop sticks.

 

fresh-watermelon-pops-2Freeze overnight. When you’re ready to taste, you can just peel the Dixie cup away.
