Someone else’s great idea: Strawberry-Watermelon Lemonade Popsicles

Making popsicles was on our summer to do list. One off day when I happened to have a watermelon on hand I went searching for a watermelon popsicle recipe. I found this gem: Strawberry Watermelon Ice Pops from Super Healthy Kids.

To make them just a little extra lemony, I zested the lemon prior to using the juice and put all of the zest in the mix.

I poured the mix in the kids’ popsicle freezer molds and had a little bit extra left over. I poured the remaining mix in an ice cube tray and stuck some popsicle sticks in. Now we have some mini popsicles on hand as little treats that have been perfect for after dinner. And enjoyed by kids and parents alike.

There was a little extra leftover after that so I decided to go ahead and freeze in it a plastic cup for thawing later. I’m thinking on our next pool day I’ll be blending that with some rum for a quick daiquiri. Moms need treats too.

Happy cooking!
