If you’ve popped by PBF over the course of the past few weeks, you’re probably well aware of my ongoing love affair with watermelon.
It’s borderline ridiculous because I truly feel like at this point in my life I could happily exist on watermelon alone. Watermelon is simply the perfect summertime food. So sweet, refreshing and absolutely delicious! I’m convinced there’s nothing better than cold watermelon when it feels like it’s 1,000 degrees outside (which it does, yet again, in Charlotte this week).
Plus, watermelon is in season right now and always seems to be on sale at the grocery store, so I’ve been adding it to my grocery cart for months and eating my way through an embarrassing number of melons during my pregnancy.
Don’t worry, there is a point to all of this random rambling about this fabulous fruit.
Watermelon Pineapple Popsicles!
I used watermelon as the base for some simple three-ingredient popsicles that I made over the weekend and Ryan and I could not get enough of them. They may be one of the easiest (and healthiest!) snack recipes I’ve shared on PBF!
I simply blended watermelon, frozen pineapple and mint leaves together (there’s no need for additional liquid thanks the amount of juice that comes out of the melon!), poured the mixture in popsicle molds and forced myself to wait until they were completely frozen to dig in.
The result was a sweet, refreshing summertime treat that Ryan and I both absolutely adored. I am now on a mission to make watermelon popsicles with a variety of fruit flavors by swapping out the pineapple for everything from frozen strawberries or blackberries to mangos or peaches! Lots of possibilities!Print
