Watermelon Popsicle

Advertisements

I can’t possibly be the only one who slices up a watermelon only to think – “How in the world are we going to be able to eat alllll of this?!” Don’t get me wrong, I love watermelon but sometimes it is just so much.

To use some of the extra, before it goes bad, I love to throw together these super simple and hydrating Watermelon Popsicles!

These only require 2 ingredients: watermelon and lime.

They can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months so it really helps extend the life of all that leftover watermelon and reduces food waste.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of watermelon
  • juice of one lime
  • OPTIONAL: 1 tsp of the sweetener of your choice (honey, agave, date paste)
  • also optional but highly recommended: Tajin to sprinkle on top as you eat – so yummy!

Directions:

Put both the watermelon and the lime juice into a high powered blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Pour the liquid into popsicle molds and add your popsicle sticks. Place in the freezer for 4-6 hours or until frozen solid. To remove from the molds, turn on the sink and let the water run along the outside of the molds. This will loosen the popsicles enough after about 10-20 seconds that you can remove them easily. Then store in the freezer either in the molds or a freezer bag for up to 3 months. Enjoy!
