Some weeks back, I bought a not so red and sweet watermelon. When I end up with a watermelon like this, I usually juice them. But kids were asking for ice cream and instead of feeding them store bought sugar loaded ice cream, I decided to make some watermelon popsicles for them. A much healthier version ;-)
I saw this recipe by Williams Sonoma but adjusted the recipe a little. The sugar used seem too much so I went easy on it. And instead of using salt, I added some lime juice which DH commented was a great combination ^-^

4 1/2 cups watermelon chunks
1 - 2 tbsp sugar (you can omit this if your watermelon is sweet)
1 lime juice
- Cut the watermelon in chunks and remove any seeds you can see.
- In a blender, combine the watermelon chunks, sugar and lime juice. Blend the mixture till the mixture turns into liquid.
- Pour the mixture into popsicles mould and freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight.
- Run the molds under warm water for 30 seconds to release the pops. Enjoy!
