Recipe Wednesday: Watermelon Lemonade Popsicle's!




What says summertime to you?!

Happy you stopped by today, thank you! When you think of summertime, what comes to mind? A dip in the pool, going to the beach, family picnics. There are many things that come to mind, however, what seems to be a constant for us is: lemonade, watermelon and popsicles.

So today's recipe is in honor of those three summer traditions all wrapped up in one!



These Watermelon Lemonade Popsicle's were made without a recipe per say. We had halve of a personal watermelon left over and about 5 large lemons as well we did not want to go to waste. 

So to put it in a "non recipe" recipe form, here goes.

Watermelon Lemonade Popsicle's

1/2 seedless personal watermelon or about 3-4 cups watermelon
5 lemons juiced
1 cup coconut milk
Agave nectar to taste
Popsicle molds

In a blender place watermelon, lemon juice and coconut milk. Pulse several time. Add 2-3 tablespoons of agave nectar to start with and give it a whirl in the blender. Taste. Add more agave if needed. Blend. Pour into molds. Freeze.


The watermelon and the lemonade separate and make a really pretty looking popsicle.


You get a refreshing taste of lemonade and watermelon throughout the popsicle.


The coconut milk for us was very subtle in taste. However, it packs a lot of nutrition in a popsicle. 




Whip these up early in the morning and by late afternoon, when the family is ready for a cool, sweet and healthy treat.......surprise them with a Watermelon lemonade Popsicle!


Whatever images summer conjures up for you, we hope you will give these Watermelon Lemonade Popsicle's a try this summer. Be inspired. Get creative!

Wisdom is too lofty for a fool;
He does not open his mouth in the gate.
Proverbs 27:7
