Summer is probably one of my favorite seasons of the year. I live and work in the Pacific Northwest where the summers are beautiful to begin with, but even more so because the winters can be quite long and cold. When the temps heat up, though, it can be a challenge to find refreshing snacks that aren't sugar-laden and full of questionable ingredients.
My kids, much like myself, love cold and tasty treats when the sun comes out in full force, which is why I took a page from my grandmother's recipe book. She always created fun, homemade Popsicles in the summer when I was a child, so I created these Watermelon Fruit Pops. With only three ingredients, they are easy to make, full of flavor and good for you! They taste sweet without added sugar, are loaded with antioxidants thanks to the Barlean's Strawberry-Kiwi Superfruit Greens, and make me feel good as a mom about giving them to my girls. If you don’t like watermelon, mix it up with other fruits you love!
