I always keep popsicles tucked away in my freezer for a hot day, or even a need for a ‘Wellness Popsicle’ day.
They are my favorite frozen dessert treats in summer; whether creamy popsicles or whole fruit popsicles.
Watermelon provides a great way to simply puree this sweet and juicy fruit with a food processor, pop into molds, freeze and done.

Watermelon Health Benefits
For the health of it, keep summertime watermelon frozen for wintertime cold, flu and other unkind germs.
It doesn’t get any better than the fruit juice of sun ripened watermelon to feel well fast in the dead of winter.
It’s perfect to relieve throat and coughing discomfort.
Also, the antioxidants, to support the immune system, are a delicious way to avoid illness.
Being mindful of less sugar in a sweet treat, makes fresh fruit all the more desirable to turn into desserts.
If more sweetness is needed, simply use a drizzle of honey, maple syrup, or agave along with a few simple ingredients.
Popsicle Flavors Are As Diverse As There Are Ingredients In Your Kitchen
The choices for a healthy popsicle mixture knows no limits.
Fruity popsicles can range from pureed fruits, to simply a favorite fruit juicy.
When making creamy ice cream bars, I often opt for using Greek yogurt or coconut milk instead of cream.
Looking for icy popsicles that are not cream, nor juicy fruits?
Then ripe bananas can be the best of both cream and fruit.

How To Make Summertime Watermelon Popsicles
- First – pick a really ripe watermelon from a farmer’s market or grocery store. Tap the watermelon for a deep hollow sound.
- Second – cut the fruit from the rind. Many cultures will pickle the rinds. Pick seeds out, if any, before crushing the fruit.
- Third – place the chopped watermelon and a drizzle of honey into a food processor or blender. Puree.
- Last – transfer the watermelon puree into popsicle molds, or disposable cups, sticks in, and freeze.
- Storing – once the popsicles are frozen solid, remove and store in a freezer bag, freeing up the mold to make more.
- Notes – if using disposable cups and wooden sticks, place the popsicle mixture into the cups, freeze just the freezing points, make a small slit in the center and slide the wooden popsicle sticks in, so it continues to freeze with the stick in the center of the pop.
