It’s popsicle time! How do I know this? My kids have been asking for them constantly. As soon as the weather warms up my youngest starts thinking of watermelon popsicles. They are so easy to make and there is no added sugar or food coloring.
I’m constantly shocked at the amount of sugar and added ingredients like food coloring found in what pretend to be all-natural fruit popsicles. Most popsicles’ listed ingredients include sugar, corn syrup, gum and stabilizers. Some of them do not even contain any real fruit and instead use artificial flavors! I don’t know about you but that does not seem like a healthy snack to me.
These popsicles here are 100% fruit. Nothing added! My kids love them and I don’t mind giving them seconds or thirds on a really hot day. You can make these popsicles out of any kind of melon or fruit. Melons work best because of their high water content and natural sweetness.
All you need is a blender, a watermelon and some popsicle molds. The popsicles are extra special when you add some blueberries, kiwi or strawberries. Oh, and a little fresh mint from the garden brightens the flavor!
