Cherry Watermelon Popsicles

All fruit, totally refreshing cherry and watermelon blend together in these popsicles. Frosty fruit treats take the edge off summer’s heat in a most delicious way.

Bring on the sunshine–so long as we have our freezer stocked with naturally sweet popsicles.  I really would rather steer clear artificially coloured sugar water, which somehow becomes popular once it is frozen.  Real fruit tastes so much better.  And I will offer these Cherry Watermelon Popsicles to my children gladly, without regret.  The only consequence of them tasting so good is that we could use more popsicle moulds to keep up with the demand!

Cherry Watermelon Popsicles


Ingredients:

  • Fresh watermelon cubes, seedless or seeds removed
  • Fresh or frozen sweet cherries, pitted
  • Fresh lime juice, to taste OR fresh pineapple cubes

Directions:

  1. Into a blender jar, place watermelon and cherries (at least half of the fruit should be watermelon to provide liquid for blending).  Puree fruits until smooth, pausing to push down fruit if necessary.  Add lime juice or pineapple to taste, blending again as needed.
  2. Pour blended fruit mixture into popsicle moulds.  Insert popsicle sticks.  (Or to make the popsicles colourful, I used thin wooden coffee stirrers partially covered with striped paper straws.)  Freeze until solid, remove from moulds, and enjoy!

  1. these look so good and I’m sure the kids will love them this summer!

    Thanks for sharing at the Wake Up Wednesday Linky Party!

    1. Thanks! They were made in a basic mold that I picked up at a local chain store here in Canada. I think you could find something similar at big box stores or dollar stores. The fun part was adding the stripey paper straws, which I got separately. 🙂

  2. I love that gorgeous deep red colour. So eye-catching! It’s not quite hot enough for popsicles yet (I like to wait until it’s at least 30C), but these are totally going onto my to-make list for the summer.

  3. I love these fresh fruit pops. (The artificially colored sugar water type make me cringe. ) Beautiful pictures! Sharing on pinterest. 🙂
