Refreshing summer snacks-Watermelon Popsicles

Updated: Dec 14, 2019

Nothing better than ice-cold pops of watermelon juice for a summer afternoon in Miami.


Cold and juicy, watermelon is a perfect summer fruit. Watermelon popsicles, best thing for a hot summer afternoon.

Watermelon Popsicles

Delicious, nutritious and easy to prepare; these watermelon popsicles are a hit with my 2-year-old.

Loaded with water, vitamins and minerals, watermelon is very refreshing. Among other nutrients, this fruit contains B vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, zinc magnesium, copper, selenium, lycopene, and choline. A powerhouse of nutrients!


This fruit is naturally sweet, so it is possible to reduce the amount of added sugar, it all depends on your family taste. As a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist I can tell you it is much better to add a bit of sugar to healthy food that your family actually eats. You can reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe as your family adapts to lower sugar intake. I like to taste the watermelon before making the recipe, to decide if I need to add sugar.
