Watermelon Popsicles

Refreshing, delicious, and healthy too! These Watermelon Popsicles are the perfect summer treat!

Something really neat happened the other day.  I was reading through the comments on my blog (I love getting comments!) and came across one that said "we're neighbors".  I thought, yeah okay we probably live in the same state or maybe even the same town, I'm sure that's what she means by "neighbors".  I figured I would investigate a little bit so I clicked over to read the commenter's blog.  Hmm...that little girl and that dad look familiar.  A little more reading and I discovered that she really was my neighbor.  In fact, she lives just 5 or 6 houses down the road and we'd recently met them when we were out for a walk.  Small world!

That's one of the things I love about blogging!  You never know who you will meet!  I've met so many people while blogging and we've even become friends on Facebook, sharing our lives with each other.

Last summer I won a contest held by another blogger.  I didn't know my prize and a couple weeks later I received a package in the mail.  Inside were these fun popsicle molds!  I was just a little busy last summer (having a baby tends to do that to you!), and so these molds went in my pantry closet until a couple days ago.

Watermelon was on sale last week, and I can never resist buying one!  Then I get it home and realize that that's a lot of watermelon for one person to eat!  (Mike doesn't care for it, and Summer isn't a fan...yet...)  I decided I would put it to good use and try out my popsicle molds at the same time.

These popsicles could not be any easier!  I just put a few cups of diced watermelon in my blender, gave it a whirl, and then poured the puree into the popsicle molds.  After a few hours in the freezer, the popsicles were ready.

They're healthy and delicious.  And as a bonus for me, they're made from all real ingredients (watermelon!) and so I can enjoy them without the guilt.  These will definitely be a staple in our freezer during the summer, as well as many other flavors I've been dreaming up!
