It’s Watermelon Time!!! Did you know July is celebrated as National Watermelon Month?
And because it is full of water;the fruit is called a WATERmelon.
About 91.5 percent of the entire food is water thus why it is probably one of the most popular foods during summer.
Every part of a watermelon is edible, even the seeds and rinds.so if you get a few seeds in the mixture,..no problem.
- 4 cups watermelon puree
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 2 chopped kiwi fruit (optional)
- 2 peaches diced small
- Handful of fresh cherries, pitted and chopped (optional)
After seeding the melon, puree the 4 cups of watermelon pulp in a blender . This will turn into juice; you are not looking to keep the pulp. You could actually use your hands and push the melon through a fine sieve/colander with small holes.Set aside.
Combine in a bowl the chopped strawberries,peach,kiwi fruit,and berries if using. If you like your fruit a little sweeter, you could add sugar or Splenda to taste.
Fill each cup with the chopped fresh fruit.
Pour in the watermelon puree until each mold is full to the top.
Place a Popsicle stick into each one of the cups.
Place in your freezer on a cookie sheet or muffin pan and freeze 6 to 8 hours.
