Super-simple frozen snack. Trust me, kids will love this!
Almost everyone loves popsicles, and these watermelon popsicles with a touch of lime are not only tasty, but super-simple to make. Not only that, they are only 25 calories a pop and full of vitamin C, vitamin A, and fiber. I make this frozen treat from only three ingredients: watermelon, frozen strawberries, and lime juice.
To make these watermelon popsicles, I start with a fresh-cut watermelon and fill a measuring cup to 4 cups. I do the same with the frozen strawberries only with 2 cups (this will not quite be 4 and 2 cups). You can make larger or smaller portions, but keep the watermelon to strawberry ratio 2 to 1. Next, squeeze juice from two limes as well, and add everything to a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix. This blender is good because of the ice-crushing ability and the tamper, which use may use to safely push down ingredients. This is especially effective on frozen fruits.
After blending pour the fruit mixture into molds and freeze before serving.
