I know, I know…there have been quite a few frozen treats here lately. I just cannot help myself! All of the amazing fruit that is in season and the sunshine blazing makes me feel the need to freeze. The past few weeks my CSA box has been showing up with huge watermelons, but we can’t eat them fast enough. Before I know it, another week’s gone by and there’s a new watermelon at my door!
So, I have been coming up with some pretty creative ways to serve it up. There has been fresh watermelon and feta salad at dinner, along with frozen watermelon wedges on popsicle sticks for dessert, and most recently watermelon and lime juice. Man, that juice is good! So good in fact that our kids keep asking for it…over and over. A few days ago I made a another huge batch of juice and decided to give my new ice pop molds a try.
I always cringe when I see the big bags of plastic wrapped, brightly hued, ice pops hit the store shelves in summer. I mean seriously, what is in those things anyway? All I know is that kids go crazy for them…my kids included and this year I am determined to offer better ice pop options at home than they can ever hope to find in a plastic tube at the store.
This recipe only has 2 ingredients, tastes amazing, and is probably the most refreshing thing you will put in your face on a hot day. Get a few molds and freeze some homemade juice! You will be so glad you did.
- 2 cups fresh watermelon juice
- 1 lime zested and juiced
- In a pitcher combine the watermelon juice, lime zest, and juice. Stir to combine and pour into molds. Freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.
If you do not have a juicer simply puree the watermelon in a blender and strain through a fine mesh sieve for juice.
