Real Fruit Popsicles

This isn’t much of a recipe, but I thought I’d share it anyway.  Just a fun, healthy summer treat.  I cut up a whole watermelon the other day.  And realized we could never eat that much watermelon before it goes bad.  Sometimes when I have a lot I freeze it.  I love to eat it frozen.  And Rebecca and I will both eat it when it has thawed.  But we already have some in the freezer.  So I thought about what else I could do with extra watermelon.  And I decided to try making popsicles with it.  And it worked!  All I did was puree some watermelon and freeze it.  That’s it.  Nothing added, no extra sugar.  Just pure watermelon.  And they are so good!  Rebecca devoured one last night.  I wish I had more strawberries now.  They would be even better with strawberry puree mixed in.  I have a little more watermelon to use up.  I think I’ll make a few more popsicles.  And I might see if I can make some watermelon fruit leather too.  Just thought I’d pass along this simple idea for a healthy summer treat.  It’s especially good for kids or for anyone trying to cut down on added sugar.  I think this would work for a lot of fruits.  And you can mix them too.  I’ll have to try different flavors.  Excuse the picture…Rebecca had already taken a couple bites 🙂

    I’ve made these just about every year of my life. My grandma and I used to make them together when I was little, with whatever fruit was in season. Then I’d get my mom to make them with me. I made some a few weeks ago, a few days after I made chocolate pudding popsicles. I used strawberries and bananas for that batch – yum!
