Sweet Watermelon, plump berries and fresh mint shine in my Watermelon Popsicles Recipe!
Hi friends! Happy Thursday.
This is my 500th blog post on Running in a Skirt! Kind of exciting huh? I’ve come a LONG way since that first post announcing I was running the Chicago Marathon AND starting a blog almost three years ago. My how times change, yet everything stays the same. 🙂 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.
Mix your fruit up in blender, just like a smoothie and pour into the molds.
Let them sit overnight and enjoy the next day!
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. That loosens it up a bit.
Simple and delicious! And the perfect way to embrace these last few weeks of my favorite season.
- 2 cups watermelon roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoons mint
- 1/2 lime juiced
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- Put watermelon, mint and lime juice in a blender.
- Pour watermelon 1 inch of watermelon mixture in molds. Carefully place the blueberrys on top. Slowly add more of the watermelon mixture. Layer in more blueberries. Repeat until molds are full.
- Add the top.
- Freeze overnight.
- To remove run under warm water for 30 seconds.
I didn't add any extra sugar, but you could add sugar or stevia if you don't find just the watermelon sweet enough!
Thanks for stopping by today! It’s Fashion Friday tomorrow and I’m sharing a great new outfit I found at the outlet mall. You can also find out how to help me win a contest 🙂 Hope to see you then.
