Clean Eating Watermelon Popsicles

     I don't know about you, but Summer is in full swing here below the Mason-Dixon line, and it has been hot! My thoughts are already firmly fixed on getting cool - what better way than popsicles? Even better - Clean popsicles!

To make real watermelon popsicles all you do is puree watermelon – because it’s mostly water it purees really well. Cut it into chunks and whiz it in the blender or food processor until smooth. Then pour it into popsicle molds, add some fresh fruit if you like (blueberries, halved grapes, chopped kiwi ) and freeze. If you don’t have popsicle molds, pour it into paper Dixie cups, cover the cups with plastic wrap (to hold the stick in place) and poke a stick through, then freeze.

Popsicle molds are definitely worth the investment. Check out the selection over at Amazon!

I own the Tovolo blue rocketship molds ( #8 on this list ) , and they are terrific.
