Watermelon Lime Popsicles

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…

  22. Freeze in the freezer at least 8 hours or overnight. And, with only four ingredients and 15 minutes of prep time, why buy popsicles when you can make them them easily at home?
