Happy Spring! Watermelons are usually a summer time treat, but they’re also a great when you're starting to get excited for warmer weather. Watermelons are a great source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C and can usually be found all year round because of how popular they are. Another year 'round treat is Watermelon Mint Lime Popsicles.
Watermelon Mint Lime Popsicles are a sweet and easy treat that can be eaten as an after school snack or a healthy dessert. We layered our Watermelon Mint Lime Popsicles and made simple Popsicles, but with this recipe you can get creative!
Watermelon Mint Lime Popsicles
Makes 6 Servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes | Freeze Time: 4 hours
Inspired by Satori
- 4 cups of cubed seedless watermelon (about 1/4 of a full sized watermelon)
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
- 1 lime
- 1/4 cup honey (optional)
- Wash your hands
- **Grown-up** With a paring knife, carve out sections of watermelon from the rind.
- With a kid chef knife or butter knife, cut the sections into small cubes.
- **Grown-up**: Set up blender.
- Measure out 4 cups of cubed watermelon, pour into blender.
- With a mezzaluna, chop the mint leaves into small pieces. (Don't have a mezzaluna? Just tear the leaves with your hands)
- Measure out 1 tablespoon of chopped mint. Add to blender.
- **Grown Up**: With a knife, cut a lime in half.
- Squeeze half of the lime over the blender.
- (Optional) Measure out 1/4 cup honey. Add to blender.
- Measure out 1/4 cup of plain Greek Yogurt. You can add it to the blender now, or wait and add it as a layer in the popsicle mold. Both are yummy, just personal preference!
- Blend the ingredients in a blender until the mixture is smooth. Make sure that the top on the blender is on!
- Pour the mixture into ice pop molds. (Optional) Layer the ice pops, one layer with the watermelon and one with yogurt.
- Place the popsicles into the freezer.
- Once the popsicles are frozen solid (about 4 hours), take them out from the freezer. Run hot water over the molds for 30 seconds. Remove the popsicle from the mold.
**Grown Up Tips**
- If your blender's having trouble blending the mixture, add coconut milk or regular water to allow for the cubes to blend more easily.
- The ice pops might separate in the molds, shake them for an even distribution.
