Watermelon Lime Popsicles Recipe

Watermelon Lime Popsicles

Prep Time 6 minutes Cook Time 12 hours freezing time

Looking for a healthful alternative to ordinary frozen snacks? Real fruit puree provides flavor and body to these easy to make frozen treats.

by Christina Stanley-Salerno

What you'll need

  • 5 cups seedless watermelon (about 1/4 of a large watermelon), diced
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Helpful Tip:

Can't find seedless watermelon? No problem! Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer set over a medium bowl. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, press the watermelon through the strainer to extract the most juice and pits out of the solids. Add 1/2 cup strawberries for a delicious Watermelon-Strawberry Popsicle.

Notes:

Serves 10 popsicles

How to make it

  1. Combine all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  2. Discard solids and distribute the puree evenly among eight (3-ounce) Popsicle molds evenly. Freeze overnight.
