Watermelon Popsicles

Once a week, we have a playdate lunch with our dear friends B (my kindred spirit), J (C’s alter ego), and Miss C (K’s future wife, obviously).  We rotate homes so we treat one week and get treated the next.  This week, I had somethin’ special planned for the boys!

Adapted from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz

  • 4 cups watermelon, scooped out of the rind with a big spoon and kept in big chunks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • juice from 1/4 lime (about 2 tsp)

Place watermelon chunks in your blender, testing each piece to make sure it’s good.  J scooped the sugar and poured it on top of the watermelon.  C smashed down the ingredients with the 1/4 cup.  Each boy got his chance to squeeze the lime right into the blender, and neither were interested in licking their fingers afterward!

Ready

Testing

In it goes!

Remove skittish small boys to the playroom while pureeing the watermelon mixture.

Using a turkey baster (and lots of help to prevent ridiculous messes), the boys sucked up the watermelon puree and emptied it into their popsicle molds.  We have a Zoku 7-minute popsicle maker, so we set the timer for 7-minutes, popped them out, and enjoyed immediately.  If you don’t have one of these amazing things, you’ll probably be having them for dessert at suppertime.

Delicious!
