Syrupy sweet watermelon hits the spot on a hot day so imagine how refreshing it is paired with fresh picked strawberries, lemon juice and pungent mint in Popsicle form.

The key to this recipe is making sure you pick out the right watermelon. You want one that is sugary sweet and melts in your mouth.

It seems we go through a watermelon a week in the summer. Even the dogs come running when I am slicing the red, juicy fruit. I just absolutely love the flavor and even add it to salads and beverages all summer long.

How to choose the best and sweetest watermelon

No matter the size, the watermelon should feel heavy when you pick it up.

Look for the buttery yellow spot where it sat on the ground during its growing season and finally, give it knock.

While it’s important to pick the right watermelon, picking the sweetest strawberries is easy, especially if you have a strawberry farm near your home.

Lucky us…We do!

There is nothing tastier than enjoying the fruits of your labor.  Don’t these strawberries look delicious?

How to make Strawberry Watermelon Popsicles at home

Five easy ingredients is all you need, including watermelon, strawberries, fresh mint, sugar and lemon juice. These fruit popsicles are a healthy alternative to ice cream.

I decided that blending sweet watermelon and summer strawberries with a burst of lemon and mint would be refreshing and a better alternative to what you get in the frozen section of the grocery  store.

If you don’t have a popsicle mold, pick one up at any home store along with food safe popsicle sticks.

Watermelon and strawberries are perfect fruits to turn into ice pops as are peaches and another stone fruits.
