Hi friends! Happy Thursday.

This is my 500th blog post on Running in a Skirt!ย  Kind of exciting huh?ย  I’ve come a LONG way sinceย that first post announcing I was running the Chicago Marathon AND starting a blog almost three years ago.ย  My how times change, yet everything stays the same. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thank you’all for stinking with me.

Moving onto the topic of the day… yummy and homemade popsicles.

One of my favorite parts of summer is all the fresh fruit and frozen desserts like popsicles.

I decided to combine two of my favorite summer foods in my watermelon popsicles recipe.

Watermelon Popcicles Recipe

Making your own popsicles is so simple.ย  Just pick up an inexpensive Popsicle Molds. I like this one HERE.

Watermelon Popcicles Recipe

Mix your fruit up in blender, just like a smoothie and pour into the molds.

Let them sit overnight and enjoy the next day!

Watermelon Popcicles Recipe

My only trick is to run the popsicles under hot water for just a minute before you try to pull it out of the most.ย  That loosens it up a bit.

Simple and delicious!ย  And the perfect way to embrace these last few weeks of my favorite season.

    This is a great way to use up both watermelon and blueberries that are going to go south if you don’t use them. I swear my kids will eat anything that’s pureed and frozen into a pop. Beautiful!

    Fruit-filled popsicles like this recipe are always so pretty! We’ve got so much mint growing in our backyard, and I LOVE the idea of throwing them in a popsicle concoction. Looks refreshing!

    I’m more of a summer person, but I LOVE the fall transition. When it starts to get too cold, I’m out.

    I have those same popsicle thingies, and use it to freeze homemade baby food (which I sometimes end up having as a Popsicle myself!). I hadn’t tried watermelon yet, it sounds delicious!
