Watermelon, Ginger & Lime – Two Ways – Agua Fresca & Popsicles! 

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)

Blend together.

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?
