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.

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.

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. Try my ginger peach ice pops for another refreshing frozen treat.
