It’s not really summer until you’ve eaten your first watermelon. Preferably by biting straight into a piece way larger than your head, juice running all the way down to your elbows, followed by a watermelon-seed-spitting contest. Which, you’d probably lose if you were competing against me. Just kidding. Kind of.
But if you want to eat watermelon in front of a more, er, sophisticated? crowd, then look no further. Because these popsicles, well they’re just plain awesome. They’re pink and icy and sweet and sour, so obviously your kids (or your inner child) will love them, but they’ve got a little something special that makes them grown-up. Seriously. Trust. It’s the fanciest watermelon pops you’ll ever have.
These popsicles are awesome not only because they taste uh-may-zing, but also because there is no sugar. Like, none. So, yes, you can totally eat them for breakfast. Duh.
- 2 cups watermelon cubes
- juice of 1/2 lime
- a few basil leaves
- Stick everything in a tall cup and blend. Pour into dixie cups or popsicle molds, pop a stick in the top, and freeze for several hours or overnight.
- Pop out and enjoy! Easiest things ever! Makes 6 dixie-cup size popsicles [probably 4 popsicle mold-sized pops].
