It seems like watermelon and summer just kind of go together.
Have you ever wondered what to do with all that watermelon juice that seems to collect in the container with all the cut-up watermelon?? How about recycling it into homemade popsicles!!
Cathy has been "retired" from the paid workforce since 1996 to raise her family which includes one husband, one third grader, one teen and one stepson. She has been cooking and baking for as far back as she can remember for her family and friends in "Cathy's Kitchen." She is excited to be able to share her recipes as well as her cooking and baking hints with other home cooks. Please feel free to comment or ask a question about her recipes or about cooking and baking in general.
I went on the hunt for popsicle molds this past Tuesday and found some fancy ones for $3.99 at a home goods store, then went to Kroger and found the molds on sale for 70 cents!! With the price of some "fancy" popsicles, you can't beat the cost of these!
I like to buy seedless watermelon, so you don't have to worry about the seeds. To make these, just pour the juice into the mold, pop them into the freezer and in about 3 hours, they are ready to eat!! The best way to get these out of the mold is to put them into a bowl of hot water for about 20-30 seconds.
These popsicles are the perfect way to cool off during these hot summer months! If you don't have leftover watermelon juice, don't worry, just toss about two cups of chopped watermelon into a blender. Choose the puree and/or liquify setting to get it the consistency you want and then pour into the popsicle molds.
