Watermelon Lime Popsicles

Watermelon Lime Popsicles

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.

Watermelon Lime Popsicles

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.
