Recipe: Watermelon-Blueberry Ice Pops

by Watermelon pops

Watermelon and blueberries are a perfect combo in this healthy ice pop recipe.

 

They’re both in season during the summer. Both are low-calorie fruits that taste great together. They even pair well visually, the blueberries’ deep hue a sharp contrast to the bright red of freshly sliced watermelon.

Turns out that watermelon and blueberries also work wonderfully together when frozen. Here’s a recipe for watermelon-blueberry ice pops. When you make your own ice pops, you create sweet cold treats that appeal to children, especially on a hot summer day. Adults are happy to eat fruit ice pops, too. Try these ice pops instead of fat-laden ice cream or mass-market ice pops that typically contain much more sugar and less fresh fruit.

These ice pops can stay frozen for up to 3 weeks.
