Refreshing Watermelon Popsicles With 5 Ingredients!

watermelon popsiclesAs a kid I used to love sitting on my old swing set and eating a yummy Popsicle after a summer dinner outside. The lightening bugs, the corn syrup, the brain freeze ... what's not to love about enjoying a Popsicle on a warm June night? I found this great do-it-at-home recipe for watermelon Popsicles that I'm really excited to share with you. My mouth is watering already!

Run to the drug store if you don't have popsicle molds because you're going to need them. The rest is super simple.

Makes about 8 and 1/4 Popsicles.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups seeded diced watermelon
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries or frozen unsweetened, thawed
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon crème de cassis (black currant-flavored liqueur) or light corn syrup

Preparation:

  • Combine all ingredients in blender; puree until smooth.
  • Strain into 2-cup glass measuring cup, pressing on solids to extract as much liquid as possible.
  • Pour puree into Popsicle molds, dividing equally.
  • Freeze overnight. (Can be prepared 1 week ahead. Keep frozen.)

Enjoy!

Oh YUM! My kids would love these. :) I've been thinking about trying a new recipe for popsicles too. Do you think I could replace the corn syrup with honey?

Sounds delish! My kids love plain ol frozen watermelon on a stick though - cut melon into thick triangles about 2" wide at the base, and stick on the plastic popsicle sticks that come with the moulds, and freeze... great for babies who don't need extra sugar!

Hmm is there something differant you can replace the corn syrup and sugar for???


I found a great recipe for breakfast popsicles that you blend fresh or frozen (I use frozen makes them more smoothie like) unsweetened fruit, honey and yogert together and then put a little bit of granola in the popsicle molds and fill them up....my kids LOVE these and with this texas heat they are perfect and they are good for them:)

I haven't made these, but I never add extra sugar to my popsicles. I usually use yogurt as a base though, and that can have sugar in it. Or I use a fruit juice base. Yesterday I made mango/peach popsicles with vanilla yogurt.

These taste great, but have too much sugar, and I only used 5 tablespoons. I would use 2 tablespoons next time or even none at all. Best to add one tablespoon at a time and taste for your own preference.
