It’s not summer until you have watermelon juice dripping down your chin and all over your hands, right? These popsicles are my alternative to that quintessential summertime experience.
Domestocrat’s Watermelon Strawberry Popsicles (makes 4)
3 cups fresh watermelon, juiced (should yield about 1.5 cups of juice)
1/2 cup or 1 handful of strawberries, sliced thin
1 tbsp. Strawberry Rosemary Honey Simple Syrup
This recipe is based on my popsicle mold and should be adjusted accordingly to whatever mold you have by tweaking the amount of juice, syrup, or strawberries used.
The first step is to juice the watermelon. I’ve done this two ways before: with my juicer and by hand. The juicer is infinitely easier so if you have one, do that. No matter what method you have, you should end up with about 1.5 cups of watermelon juice. When you have the juice, stir in the simple syrup.
Slice up the strawberries real thin.
Fill each popsicle mold 3/4 of the way up with watermelon juice mixture. Slide the strawberry slices in on the sides until the mixture comes to the top of the popsicle mold.
Slide in the sticks and freeze for at least 5 hours.
After they have frozen solid, slide them out of the mold and enjoy!
This is summertime in a popsicle. Sweet, juicy, fresh. Plus, you can always make a boozy adult version too by adding your favorite liquor to the juice mixture. Bonus round!
Nice! I am an impatient person so I usually use my Zoku and have the pops in like 7 minutes. Have you made Joy the Bakers stawberry coconut pops? Slightly more prep w/ roasting the strawberries and coconut but holy crap, they are freakin’ amazing.
I haven’t but they sound amazing. I really gotta get on that!
i LOVE how these came out – so easy and so gorgeous!
a note on boozy freezie things, if you add more than a teeny bit of alcohol, they’re never going to freeze. (ain’t nothing wrong with a booze slushie, but popsicles you will not have.) you should also use wooden sticks so they freeze better. you can also make regular virgin popsicles, and when they are half frozen, cram in some booze-soaked gummies! :)
Thank you! Right!!!! I always forget about freezing boozy things. Derp.
