Recipe Corner: Watermelon Popsicles

Posted by Dan Doss on

Popsicles are one of the easiest way to get the kids to get some fruit into their system. Instead of serving them the frozen artificially sweetened and colored popsicles you can buy in the store, blending up real ingredients and freezing them is a simple and quick option to give your kids a healthy alternative. And let's be honest, we also love some popsicles especially in summer when it is hot outside. Enjoy!


Watermelon Popsicles

Recipe makes 6 servings

Time: 10 minutes active, 5 hours passive


Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Watermelon Juice

2 Kiwis

a few leaves of Spinach

1/2 scoop TRU Hydrate Watermelon Cucumber

6 tbsp Yogurt, unsweetened

_______________________________


1) If you cannot find watermelon juice, you can also blend fresh watermelon and strain it to make juice yourself (or use a juice if you have one), Mix watermelon juice with TRU Hydrate.


2) Divide the watermelon juice into the popsicle molds. Do not fill it up to the top. Leave about 3/4 -1 inch space. Make sure you add the popsicle sticks now. Freeze for 4 hours or until frozen solid


3) Add a tablespoon of yogurt into each popsicle. Spread evenly or if the yogurt is softer you can tap the counter or tap it on your hand to get the yogurt to spread.


4) For the green layer you peel and blend the kiwi with the few leaves of spinach until smooth. You can also strain this if you do not like the little black seeds of the kiwi but it is fine to leave it as is. Top the popsicles with it and put it back in the freezer for a few hours or overnight until solid.
