Watermelon Popsicles

IMG_4742

The weather has been all over the place these past couple weeks.

In fact… last week I had both the heater, then the air conditioner on, then the heater again.

Over the weekend… the air conditioner went back on.

I think the AC is here to stay. We’re slowly falling into the classic DC summer. This means heat, humidity, and mosquitos.

When I think about summer… two things come to mind….

Watermelon, popsicles, and white wine.

Wait a minute… that was three things…

During the summer, there’s nothing better than an ice cold slice of sweet watermelon!

Its sweet, cold, and refreshing.

This past weekend I purchased a watermelon the size of my entire upper body.

Knowing that it would be impossible for us to eat it all without it spoiling, I decided to make us some popsicles!

These were so easy to make.

I just threw some chunks of watermelon in the food processor and pulsed away.

So easy and refreshing!

Ingredients:

  • Watermelon chunks

Directions:

Place watermelon in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.

Pour blending watermelon through a strainer to make sure you don’t get any seeds in popsicles.

Pour watermelon into BPA-Free popsicle holders. Place sticks/tops on. Freeze overnight or at least 4 hours.

Enjoy!

    Our weather has been all over the place, too! Hot, cold, HOT, freeeeezing. Ugh. Watermelon ice pops sound sooo good. Now, if I could only pry the fresh version from hubby’s hands, I could try this sometime, LOL.
