Summer is watermelon and strawberry season and there is nothing like tasty delicious fresh fruit picked from the farm or local farm market.

Syrupy sweet watermelon hits the spot on a hot day. 

Fresh ripe strawberries that are bursting with that delicious strawberry flavor are hard to resist.

So imagine how refreshing and delicious it would be to combine watermelon, fresh picked strawberries with a little lemon juice and fresh mint into healthy homemade popsicles.

There’s no better way to cool down in the heat of summer than with a frozen treat.

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.

How to choose the best and sweetest watermelon

It seems we go through a watermelon a week in the summer months.

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.

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

That means its full of sweet water and ready to eat.

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

It should thump.

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.

Fresh picked strawberries always tend to be more flavorful that what you buy in the stores. 

I love to come home with more than we need.

There is nothing tastier than enjoying the fruits of your labor.  

For this easy recipe you will need a silicone popsicle mold and sticks.

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

Simple Ingredients  

This is what you will need to make this fun snack.  

Watermelon. Find a sweet melon. Even the smaller or mini watermelons are sweet and available all year round at the grocery store.

Whole Strawberries. Fresh is best. If making this recipe in the winter months, grab frozen strawberries for the sweetest option.

Sugar. I use granular white sugar for this recipe. Or use simple syrup instead. 

Lemon. A lemon helps balance out the sweetness.

Mint leaves. I always have this fresh herb growing in my garden, but it’s always available at the grocery store.

Chop watermelon into chunks and cut strawberries in half.

Using a blender or food processor, blend together the fruit, lemon juice, sugar and mint leaves. 

Pour the blended popsicle mixture into popsicle molds, ice cube tray or paper cups.

Add wooden sticks, using plastic wrap or aluminum foil to keep in place, if needed.

Freeze the pops for at least four hours.

How to loosen homemade popsicles

Once the popsicles are ready to eat, allow the mold to sit on the counter for about 10 minutes at room temperature. 

Give a tug on the sticks to slide the pops from the mold.

If needed, run water along the sides of the mold to speed up the process. 

Use patience when pulling the stick from the mold to prevent cracking or breaking.
