Last year, I wrote about the benefits of watermelon. Watermelon is not only filled with nutritious benefits, but it’s naturally sweet taste and high water content make it a perfect fruit for blending and making ice-pops (of course!) without any added sugars or even water.
Makes 10 popsicles. Each popsicle is ~20 calories.
- 4 cups of cubed, fresh watermelon - make sure to use the watermelon juice as you cube
- A handful of fresh mint or spearmint leaves
- ¼ cup of sliced cherries- about 8 cherries (in season as well!) (optional)
Place watermelon and mint in blender. Blend and stir as needed. Once blended, it should provide around 3 cups. Add to pop maker, leaving about 1 cm from the top. Add 1 tsp of sliced cherries to top and freeze.
These pops are super kid friendly! Little Fiana was enjoying every bite (or slurp, I should say ;)
