Weather: a lot cooler than California was yesterday
What I’m listening to: the hustle and bustle of a busy household
Watermelon always reminds me of the 4th of July. There’s nothing quite like a fresh, juicy watermelon on a hot summer’s day.
Except perhaps an ice cold, homemade Watermelon Lime Popsicle. Up here in Alaska, I’ve found this to be a perfect way to stretch my $10 watermelons into something fresh and tasty that will last much more than a couple of days. This recipe is extremely simple, with only a few ingredients, and the watermelon flavor really shines through. It tastes like summer on a stick.
Watermelon Lime Popsicles
- 4c watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/4c sugar (or more to taste according to the sweetness of your melon)
- popsicle mold and popsicle sticks
Toss watermelon, lime juice, and sugar into a blender. Whirl until smooth. Taste for sweetness. Add more sugar if needed. Pour into popsicle mold and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
