My kids LOVE watermelon. It can be messy but on a hot summer day enjoying juicy watermelon in back yard is the best! We love these super easy watermelon Popsicle with just one ingredient – WATERMELON!
Yep, just watermelon! You don’t need to add any ingredients or even break out the blender to make these super easy watermelon Popsicle. All you will need is a big ripe watermelon, some fun cookie cutters, and Popsicle sticks.
I love to make these for the kids since they are so simple to put together and there is nothing added to them. They are getting a completely natural, no sugar added, summertime treat. Nothing fancy is needed to make them and they only take a few minutes – of course you can eat the fun shapes right away but if you want them frozen you’re going to have to wait a little bit.
To make them just slice your watermelon into disks. Lay them flat on the cutting board and punch out your shapes with the cookie cutters. And don’t worry, we don’t let any yummy watermelon go to waste – just cut he remainder into cubes and toss them in a bowl to enjoy later.
Using a sharp knife and any cookie cutter you’d like (we used the Wilton Comfort Grip Star cookie cutter ), slice the watermelon into 1-2″ thick pieces and punch out shapes with the cookie cutter. See, wasn’t that easy?
Take your sticks and place them into the bottom of your cut out watermelon shapes. Freeze and serve for a nice, cold, all-natural treat!
These easy watermelon popsicles are always hit when I serve them for birthday parties, BBQ, or for the team after one of the kids sporting events (we’ve been known to make football shaped popsicles). They love getting a fun treat and I don’t feel guilty about serving it to them!
