A fantastic, healthy refreshing snack for kids (and adults). Great for a hot summer day’s after school snack.
Thanks to Maria Trussell for sending me through this one this one.
You can replace the watermelon puree with honeydew melon or cantaloupe puree. Use any fresh organic fruit you have on hand.
3 cups watermelon puree (about 1/4 to 1/2 a SEEDLESS watermelon)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 peach or nectarine, diced small
handful fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
Cut the watermelon into chunks and then puree it in a blender until smooth. Set aside.
Set out about 1 dozen popsicle molds (amount needed will vary depending on size of molds). Fill each one with the chopped fresh fruit. Then pour in the watermelon puree until each mold is full to the top. Place a popsicle stick into each one. Place into your freezer and freeze for about 6 to 8 hours.
When ready to serve, run the popsicle molds under warm water for a few seconds and then pull each one out. Enjoy!
