Minty Watermelon Lime Popsicle Recipe // yield: approx four 2 oz. popsicles

2 cups 1-inch cubed watermelon

2 tbsp fresh-squeezed lime juice

6 mint leaves, chopped

*Optional: sweetener added to taste.

Instructions:

1. Blend all ingredients together in a blender.

2. Pour mixture into mold and insert stick.

3. Freeze until solid.

4. Run warm water over mold to release popsicle.

Notes:

This is a delicious and nutritious gourmet fruit pop! I used 2 oz. shot glasses for these popsicles. To get the stick to stand up without a mold, I covered the glass with foil and stuck the stick in the middle before freezing. I didn’t sweeten these and don’t think they need it, but if you want a sweeter flavor you can add your sweetener of choice to taste!

–Enjoy!Kylee
