What’s better than watermelon in the summer? Okay probably nothing but these Watermelon Ice Pops come pretty close.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m kind of obsessed with these Zipzicle bags I found on Amazon. I don’t know how many times I’ve purchased ice pops or the drinkable yogurts for my son. But now that I’ve found these, the possibilities are endless.
Now that is close to summer, fruits and veggies are at an all time low. $3.00 for a whole watermelon? Do you know how many watermelon ice pops you could make with a whole watermelon? Enough to freeze for at least a month. Or at least use half of it and slice the other half to eat.
How to make Homemade Watermelon Ice Pops
To get started you’ll want to rinse off your watermelon, cut it in to wedges, and cut the rind off. Then place about 3 cups of watermelon in a blender with a couple tablespoons of water and puree until smooth. Place the bottom of your funnel into the top of your Zipzicle bags and pour the pureed watermelon into the top of the funnel until you reach the recommended fill line. Zip your bags closed and place in the freezer for about 3-4 hours or until frozen.
When you craving watermelon and you don’t want to go through the hassle of cutting one up, just take one of these yummy Watermelon Ice Pops out of the freezer and enjoy a cold treat.
