Watermelon Popsicles

What's Cookin'?

Halt! Don't throw away that 'past its prime' watermelon!  Use it to make watermelon popsicles - why, you can even use a fresh watermelon :).  This is what we did and it turned out fantastic.  Even dh liked it and wanted one of his own.


rapadura (optional)


1. Cube and seed watermelon and fill up the food processor bowl with the chunks (our cubes/chunks were about 1 in).

2. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of rapaduraor another unprocessed sweetener of your choice.  We didn't pick honey because, as youngest dd noted, it would just be a mix of flavors and wouldn't just sweeten it.

3. Whirl it until almost smooth.  Some texture is good.

4. Pour into your popsicle molds.  We used these by Tovolo and they are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.  My dream pops would be made in these stainless steel molds .


Dh had gotten a huge watermelon at the grocery store.  I used half of it for these pops but after we cubed and seeded it we only used 1/2 of that for our first batch.  The cubed watermelon stayed fine in the refrigerator for a day or two until we ate the first batch and were ready for more.  When I made the second batch there was just a little left so I poured it into paper cups with spoons for extras.

I had tried making 'fresco de sandia' for them years ago and dc didn't like it, but for some reason, the exact same thing frozen is delicious, lol.

What's Schoolin'?

We finished up the 1970s yesterday and had some fun with it (the day before had been the serious lesson!).  We watched Happy Days on youtube, decorated pet rocks, practiced typing, listened to disco music I checked out from the library, and watched Peanuts (also from the library).

Great fun!
