These Watermelon Popsicles with Cucumber and Lime are the perfect refreshing treat for hot summer days. They are easy to make, have no added sugar, and are kid approved!
Summer is meant for frozen treats. And nothing is more refreshing in the heat than popsicles. Especially these dairy-free, no sugar added, frozen pops!
All the sweetness of fresh ripe watermelon. All the hydration of crisp clean cucumber. All the tart citrus of juicy lime.
If you have a blender, you can easily make these icy treats in minutes (plus freezing time, of course).
So, what are you waiting for? Time to cool of this summer – go make these Watermelon Popsicles!
My kids love the Watermelon Cucumber Cooler from Trader Joe’s.
I buy bottled juice so infrequently that I didn’t really think to look at the ingredient list the first few times.
Did you know that sugar is the 2nd ingredient in this drink? Coming right after filtered water.
It would more accurately be called Sugar Water with a Hint of Watermelon.
I knew I could do better making it myself at home. And we did…several times.
But since it’s summer, I went one further and froze the delicious juice into homemade Watermelon Popsicles.
Homemade popsicles are so easy to make.
No need to waste your money on store bought ones loaded with sugar. Buying fresh fruit at their peak ripeness should give you all the sweetness you need.
If your fruit needs a little help sweetening, a couple tablespoons of pure maple syrup will do the trick.
