My toddlers love popsicles and since the weather here has been in the 80's lately, we've begun making them a couple times a week! A few days ago, the kids were clamoring for popsicles and I was trying to decided what to make with the half of a watermelon sitting in my fridge. Why not watermelon pops?! An hour later, I was declared the 'best mom in the world' when I handed them these delicious, icy fruit pops right before dinner! Sweet, icy cold, and healthy, these are the perfect summer treat for any age! Watermelon Pops
lollipop or wooden popsicle sticks
1. Slice fresh watermelon into half inch thick slices.
2. Using your favorite cookie cutters, cut watermelon into shapes.
3. Insert a stick halfway through the bottom of the watermelon shape and place on a baking sheet covered wth parchment paper.
4. Place the baking sheet of watemelon pops in the freezer for at least an hour and freeze until firm.
5. Remove from the freezer and enjoy!
(You can store the leftover frozen pops with parchment or wax paper in between the layers, in a plastic tupperware, in the freezer for up to a week.)
