Yesterday I was determined to make homemade popsicles out of ingredients I already had at home. I searched online and was inspired by a recent article by Real Simple.
Part of me decided as much as I love Las Paletas this was so fun, so easy and fast to put together it may be a long while before I buy one again (just saying that out loud I’m sure I will be standing outside of Las Palates with an avocado paleta in the next two weeks).
Watermelon, Ginger and Lime Popsicles
1/2 of a seedless watermelon
Juice and zest of 1-2 limes
1-2 inches of ginger grated
1 Tbs. sugar (taste your watermelon, if it tastes sweet then this is not necessary)
1/3 c. Water (just enough to get it moving in your blender)
Pour into popsicle molds
Pour remaining into a glass over ice with a squeeze of lime. Drink. (Booze optional)
Put in freezer, add Popsicle sticks after 1 hour(ish). Freeze for several more hours.
I am already daydreaming about other popsicle recipes! What are your favorites?
