Watermelon Lime Popcicles

Here is a fun recipe for the whole family to enjoy this coming labor day weekend. I've been getting creative in the kitchen trying to find ways to beat the heat. I came up with this great popsicle recipe and it has been a delicious way to cool down. An added bonus is that these little gems are anti-inflammatory and full of vitamin C and lycopene, which is great for your cardiovascular health. 

 

INGREDIENTS

1 small watermelon (or half of a large one)

Juice of 1 lime

Sprigs of mint

* optional to add honey to taste; or leave it out to keep it tart.

 

DIRECTIONS

Slice the watermelon up into cubes

 

Combine in a blender with the juice of the lime and 2-3 mint leaves

 

Pour into popsicle molds leaving an inch of room at the top.

 

Freeze overnight

Then the next time things heat up, cool down with this treat!


Hope you like it!
