Watermelon Popsicle
How to make Easy Watermelon Popsicle with step by step photos - It’s been hot and sunny here in Bangalore and I’ve been craving cool treats most afternoons so I’ve made this refreshing fresh, bright, healthy Watermelon Popsicles are such a great summer treat! They’re made of 100% fruit and completely delicious and satisfying for hot summer days.

These wonderful treats are very simple to make and there are only 3 ingredients and I can pronounce them 😉 This fresh watermelon popsicle recipe has only require 5 minutes of prep work! It's the best low-calorie frozen treat to enjoy on a hot summer day! All you really need is a Popsicle sticks / Popsicle molds and a freezer. That's it !!

There is nothing like enjoying popsicles and ice-creams on a scorching hot day. Unfortunately, a lot of store-bought popsicles contain quite a bit of added sugar, artificial flavors and color. 

Watermelon is in season too, so this recipe is good for your health, taste buds and wallet! In Bangalore watermelon are always available in all 12 months, but during summer time watermelon is more juicy as well as more sweet. This is the best time to make it.

Healthy benefits of Eating Watermelon 

Watermelon is a delicious and refreshing fruit that's also good for you. The green outer rind is hard and fleshy, and rarely eaten, while the interior is soft, red or pink flesh containing many seeds; this is the part of watermelon which is typically eaten. The healthy or beneficial effects of watermelon are mainly derived from its unique nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds.

1. Watermelons contain a lot of potassium, which is very helpful in cleaning out the toxic depositions in the kidney. 

2. It also helps hydrate your body during the hot summer. 

3. The high amount of water in watermelons also stimulates a release of excess liquid in the form of sweat, which cools your body further during hot summer days.

4. Watermelon is made up of 92% water and is effective in reducing both your body temperature and blood pressure. 

This isn’t something we want to be giving our kids all summer long, so I thought why not to make it at home. Making your own popsicles allows you to take control of what goes into them. 

These Watermelon Popsicles are made with only watermelon. You can be happy knowing you are giving your little ones a refreshing and delicious treat that is also packed full of goodness.

HOW TO UNMOLD THE POPSICLES

Run the molds under warm water for around ten seconds. Slowly, and carefully, remove each popsicle from the mold. If the popsicle still doesn’t remove easily then run it under the warm water again, checking every couple of seconds.

Popsicle or ice lolly's are the best treat during summer. With Popsicles you only need to put a small amount of fruit in to get a lot out. Layer and mix your popsicles any which way you like because remember there are no rules.

Notes**

** You can use whatever type of Popsicle sticks and Popsicle molds. Also, you could replace the watermelon with just about any other fruit. Just be aware that sweeter fruits will tend to taste better and other’s will need more added sweetener.
