Ah, summertime. One of my favorite times of the year.
Well, only since I moved away from my hometown of Mesa, AZ. Yeah. Growing up in Arizona? Not so much fun in the summer. It gets to highs of 120 degrees there! It is the desert, after all.
But thank goodness I was able to move away into the beautiful year-round weather of California. I am obsessed with the weather here. It really doesn’t get any better.
Speaking of childhood and growing up, I have fond memories of grabbing popsicles from the freezer when I was a kid and devouring them on a hot summer day. (Remember Otter Pops?? Those were my fave. My boys love those!)
I’m sort of excited about these popsicles. I bought a cute popsicle mold online at Target and I have been making popsicles right and left. It’s so much fun! I think the best part is tricking my boys into eating something healthy by putting it in the shape of a frozen treat.
Oooohhh yeah, I am totally that mom.
These are all-fruit popsicles and my boys actually ate them! See the proof above!
Nothing better than watermelon to cool you off on a hot summer’s day. Put it in popsicle form, and it’s even better. Well, everything is better in popsicle form. Right??
- 2 cups watermelon, chopped
- 1 kiwi, peeled and diced
- 1 tsp. fresh lime juice
- 1 Tbsp. agave (or more if necessary)
- Blend all ingredients in a blender (I used my Vitamix).
- Pour mixture into popsicle mold and place in freezer for a couple of hours. When hardened, pull out of popsicle mold and enjoy!
