Watermelon popsicles

Q and I have been enjoying a yummy treat lately....

These watermelon popsicles have been good to have in the freezer with this August heat! The best thing about them is that they are super-healthy because they're full of natural ingredients and don't have very much sugar. I found the recipe here while searching for a way to use up tons of watermelon that we just couldn't eat all by ourselves.

Enjoy!

Watermelon Popsicles

1-1/2 pounds seedless watermelon without rind, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 4 cups)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup mint leaves, minced
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
pinch of salt

In a blender, puree the watermelon with the sugar until smooth. Stir in the mint, lemon zest and salt. Pour the puree in 8 popsicle molds or in 2 standard ice cube trays (insert popsicle sticks halfway through freezing) and freeze until hard, about 3 hours.
