Watermelon Pops


A few years ago, when I was working full time, the owner of our company loved popsicles.  But he was always watching his waistline and sugar intake and had a love/hate relationship it seemed with popsicles. 

In an effort to cut back his sugar intake he started eating only real fruit popsicles that you can purchase in the store.  However, despite being “real fruit” popsicles, they still had a LOT of sugar in them. 

One day, his Executive Assistant and I were chatting about this and I made the suggestion of frozen fruit.  Why not eat frozen grapes instead? 

And that was it.  From that moment on, he ate frozen grapes for a snack.  Real fruit, no added sugar and frozen.  A win, win, win situation.

Personally, I love frozen fruit.  I love sucking on it until it softens and then chewing it up.  I love how it melts in your mouth.  I love how refreshing it is and portable too! 

So the idea hit me as I was standing in the grocery store, thinking about the amazing weather we are having and the obscene amount of popsicles my kids will be consuming this summer, that Watermelon would make a fantastic natural frozen popsicle!  Why not make my own watermelon pops?

You can cut your slices into any shape or size,  jab it with a stick, freeze it, and then enjoy a natural, no sugar added homemade watermelon popsicle. 

Seriously, doesn’t that sound refreshing and delicious?  It is!  Watermelon is mainly water anyway, so it freezes up nice and hard.  It’s perfect to lick until it softens and you can bite it or chew it {unless you have teeth made of glass and enjoy chewing ice cold things}. 

This summer, instead of spending gobs of money on sugary popsicles, why not create your own natural frozen watermelon pops!  Simple and delicious!
