There are a few things in life you can be certain of. One of them is if it is watermelon season here in Florida, I have a watermelon or two sitting on my kitchen counter. I just so happened to cut one open to make these yummy Watermelon Strawberry Popsicles.
There is not much in this world that can beat the taste of a Fresh From Florida Watermelon. They are sweet, juicy and full of flavor. I love to just crack one open and eat it by itself, but there are so many yummy watermelon recipes too!
Before you pick up just any watermelon, remember to check your local store for the Fresh From Florida sign to know you are getting yummy Florida produce. You can also find the Fresh From Florida logo at your local restaurants. Check the menus. Don’t forget, head to Fresh From Florida to get more great recipes for yummy Fresh From Florida Produce.
I put a couple cups of diced seedless watermelon in my food processor with 1 cup of frozen strawberries. You can use fresh too. I was saving my fresh strawberries for a shortcake. 😉 Puree all the fruit together. I left a few chunks in mine. I like my popsicles with little pieces of fruit in them. If you want your popsicles to be a little sweeter you can mix in a little sugar to taste. My Fresh From Florida Watermelon was perfectly sweet enough. I didn’t add any sugar.
I poured the fruit puree into my popsicle mold an my favorite popsicle stick placer helped me get the sticks all in line. We popped these in the freezer over night.
Now when we come in from a fun afternoon outside in the Summer sun we can cool down with one of these mouthwatering Watermelon Strawberry Popsicles. PERFECTION!
