Nothing says summer quite like popsicles, am I right?
When I was five or six, my best friend had a pool in her backyard which I thought was so cool. We would spend hours out there jumping off the side into the four-foot water. After a while, our Moms would come treat us with a Chilly Willy or some other popsicle that reigned supreme in the 90s. Back then, that little treat was pure bliss.
Nowadays, I still love a good popsicle, only I prefer ones with a lot less sugar. Enter: these easy watermelon lime popsicles.
Bree and I made these super easy, healthy watermelon lime popsicles a few weeks ago while we were catching up about her adventures abroad. It was one of those hot DC afternoons where you basically needed a sweet treat of some sort to make it bearable, and these definitely fit the bill.
I didn’t have popsicle molds before, but picked these up at Home Goods for less than $6! They also came with a recipe book chalk full of fruit pop ideas, so I’ll be sure to let you know my favorites.
Of course, the guys who suggested I use the molds to make margarita pops in my building might be onto something even better…
– 2 cups of watermelon, chopped into 1″ cubes
– 1/4 cup lime juice
– 1 tablespoon all natural agave nectar
Freeze 1″ squares of watermelon for two hours, or until firm. Combine agave nectar, lime juice, and watermelon in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into molds and freeze for three hours. Enjoy!
