When I was a little girl my grandma worked out a daily deal with the “paleta man” (ice cream man who pushed a cart) where she’d give him ice water and he could sit on our porch to rest and in return he’d give me a free popsicle. It was pretty awesome, but on days that he didn’t come by we always had a backup of these ice tray popsicles.
You can totally make them in fancy popsicle molds, but in a pinch these ice cube trays work just fine.
Watermelon nutrition: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/2072/2
- 2 cups seedless watermelon
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/8 cup sugar (optional)
Add ingredients to a blender and blend until liquefied.
Pour into an ice cube tray and cover with a large piece of foil. After, I usually gently press down on the foil to get the indentation of the tray. Put toothpicks in the middle of each cube and freeze overnight.
