Homemade Strawberry-Watermelon Popsicle


easy summer time treat
After weeks of gloomy days, we are finally getting sunny warm days. This inspired me to make some icy treats for the family. I am not against little man having some sugar or store bought pops but with berry season in full swing, these are so easy to make at home and I can control the sugar content. We are all about smoothie in this house since little man is rather picky with his veggie and fruits. But with a smoothie, he will drink everything down. I see this as smoothie on ice.

Instead of exact measurement, I simply blended watermelon cubes and fresh strawberries (about 60/40 in ratio) with a hand blender. You can adjust to fit personal taste. There is no need to add water since watermelon is so high in water content. I did add a little lemon juice and some sugar, else the taste can be slightly bland. I basically made a batch to fit the taste of the whole family.  But, for very young ones, it may not be a bad idea to just use fresh fruits. What about you, what is your favorite icy treat in the summer? ~xoxo Angela
