Watermelon Pops

Watermelons are mostly water, actually about 92% H2O to be precise. But not only is watermelon hydrating, this refreshing fruit is soaked with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. There’s even a modest amount of potassium!

By the end of summer you might beginning to get a bit bored with sliced watermelon, so here’s a fresh idea to have a healthy refreshing treat – make watermelon pops with fresh watermelon juice!

This is super simple, all you need us watermelon and pop makers (found at most dollar stores).  ((Warning: you might be inspired to make many other types of fruit/veggie pops after this!))

I used my juicer to make these treats, but if you don’t have a juicer you can just cut up watermelon, purée it in your blender, and pour into molds – this isn’t rocket science!

Nothing beats a totally natural, 100% healthy frozen treat with one ingredient!

1) buy watermelon

2) cut watermelon into cubes

3) put cubes through juicer/blender

4) pour juice/purée into molds

5) freeze overnight or until frozen through.

Enjoy!

In health,

  1. Wonderful information and pictures! Watermelon has become a staple in our home. Watermelon is the Lycopene Leader among fresh produce. In addition to its healthy properties and effects on women, children, men and pregnant women, watermelon is an important part of a healthy diet. Huge for detox. Learned not to throw the skin/casings away this summer. They are full of nutrition with amazing health benefits too!
