Watermelon Popsicles and Ice Cubes

Now that summer vacation is just around the corner, the kiddies will most likely spend most of their time outside riding bikes, swimming, running around etc. One thing is for sure with the summer heat beating down their backs....they will be hungry and thirsty for something cold and refreshing. Nothing says refreshing like popsicles! However all that sugar with little to no health benefits has some people shying away from giving too much to their kids. So why not try to make your own watermelon fruit popsicles at home? They are simple to make, look great, and taste even better! Here is what you need to get you started;
Chunks of fresh fruit - try grapes, strawberries, or kiwi fruit

Puree watermelon and pour into Popsicle molds. Drop in chunks of fresh fruit, insert caps and place in freezer. Serve when frozen.
You can also puree your seedless watermelons and pour into ice trays. Drop in a pretty cube into your juice or seltzer for a refreshing summer time drink. Enjoy!
