100% Fruit Popsicles

It's July. Which I'm sure is a fact that's not surprising to anyone. And it's hot. Also, not surprising.

The "lovely" heat has put me in the mood for popsicles quite a bit lately. Except whenever I go to buy them at the grocery store, I end up leaving them on the shelf because I can't help but wonder how much of the popsicle is good for you and how much is processed sugars and other junk.

So I decided to make my own! 

Confession: I've been consuming a massive amount of watermelon lately (we're talking eating an entire seedless one by myself in a few days) so I thought it would be perfect to start off with watermelon popsicles.

And y'all, these couldn't be easier.

All you need to do is chop up some seedless watermelon (the white seeds will puree up so don't worry about removing them if you have some), place it in your blender, and blend away.

Pour the puree into your popsicle molds and freeze. That's seriously it! 100% fruit and a refreshingly icy cold treat for your hard-playing kiddos (and you!).

My baby was too sweaty to actually eat hers outside so she just stood in the doorway gazing out. :)


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
