Popsicle Recipes for Kids
Kids love popsicles…and who can blame them? There’s nothing better than a sweet, frozen treat after a spending a hot summer afternoon playing outdoors. Last week at my daughter’s end-of-the-school-year party, one of the moms brought in frozen watermelon pops. They were delicious, sweet, and the easiest thing ever to make. My kids LOVE watermelon, so I knew I had to try these.
Watermelon Pops – Easy Popsicle Recipes for Kids
- half of a seedless watermelon (use more or less depending on how many pops you want to make)
- Slice your watermelon into triangles. Do not remove the rind.
- Remove the little white seeds that are visible on the outside of the watermelon slice.
- Spread the slices on a cookie sheet. Make sure that they are not touching.
- Freeze for 3-4 hours or until they are frozen through.
- Serve now or save for later by wrapping each individual slice in plastic wrap and storing in the freezer.
It doesn’t get much easier than that, does it? If you leave the rind on the watermelon, it can be used to hold the popsicle. I’ve seen other variations online where the rind is removed and popsicle sticks are stuck into the watermelon slices before freezing. You can even get creative and use cookie cutters to cut your watermelon slices into shapes! Keep them in your freezer for when your kids are looking for a cool treat – or make a big batch and serve them at a summer BBQ or birthday party!
