This week’s last popsicle recipe is for the kids. These melon-berry popsicles are made from fruit, a little sugar for sweetness, and some citrus juice. Then it all gets blended together and poured into the mold. Very simple and very refreshing to cool off on a hot summer. Plus, they are way better for your kiddos that those sugar water popsicles from the grocery store. What more can I say?
To make these melon-berry popsicles, you place some seedless melon, raspberries, sugar, and lemon or lime juice in a blender. You can use any kind of melon, but I used watermelon. Blend on high until smooth.
Pour the liquid into popsicle molds about 1/4 inch from the top of each mold. Place in the freezer and freeze for several hours or overnight until firm. There are so many fun molds out these that can make popsicles in all kinds of fun shapes. The mold I used to make these was just from the dollar store.
- SEEDED MELON (HONEY DEW, CANTALOUPE, OR WATERMELON – I USED WATERMELON)
- FRESH OR FROZEN RASPBERRIES (IF USING FROZEN, THAW THEM FIRST)
- LEMON OR LIME JUICE
