Picture of Summer on a Stick

Nothing says summer more to me than watermelon. Sitting on the beach eating watermelon after a long day of swimming and building sand castles... Aaahhh! Watermelon also lends itself nicely to freezing into popsicles - either in chunks (just poke a stick in and freeze), or blended to mix with other flavours. In this instructable I'll describe the basic method for blended fruit popsicles then introduce a few recipes to make your summer delicious and refreshing!

Step 1: Method: Basic Watermelon Ice Blocks/Popsicles

Making popsicles from fruit is easy, healthy and refreshing. In six easy steps you can be sitting in the sun eating your own delicious guilt free treat

  • Start by peeling and chopping your watermelon.
  • Blend it with a leaf or two of mint.
  • Pour it into your molds.
  • Insert a popsicle stick. To hold the popsicle stick in place I cut a piece of heavy paper and made a slot in the middle of it to hold the stick in place.
  • Freeze for at least 5 hours, or until the stick is firm in the fruit.
  • Soak the molds in water for a minute or so to make extracting your delicious treat easy.

Store the popsicles in a plastic container, separated with wax paper.

Very colorful, healthy and yummy reciepe! i'm gonna try it out at home! Thanks for sharing your ideas! By the way, you've got a new Follower ;))
