Watermelon-Lime Popsicles

My favorite niece in the world came over for our first summer afternoon at Deep Eddy Swimming Pool. Before we left, we whipped together this nice refreshing Watermelon-Lime treat. When we got back we had an almost frozen popsicle. We couldn’t wait for them to be totally frozen, so we ate them straight out of the dixie cups with a spoon. Oh they were good. The next day I tested them out and they froze well for a nice popsicle snack.

Watermelon-Lime Popsicles
2 cups watermelon chunks
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup agave
8 basil leaves (optional)
3 Tablespoons water

Place all ingredients, except for the basil, in the blender and puree. Or, place all ingredients, except for the basil, in a bowl and use your hand-held immersion blender. It should be pretty well blended, but still have a couple of chunks of watermelon here or there. Add the basil and pulse until the basil is chopped but still makes nice green specs.

Pour into 3 ounce dixie cups, put a popsicle stick in the top, or leave as is and eat it with a spoon out of the cups. These stay good in the freezer uncovered for about 5 days.


About Salts Kitchen

I write. I eat. And I cook. I write about what I cook and eat. I love finding new foods, being inspired to make something I've never made, and most of all I love feeding other people things that they have never tried before. I like disproving myths about food and what it means to eat well, to eat healthy, often on a budget, and for some of us- to eat with a bunch of food allergies (and still eat well!).
