A refreshing treat

Sometimes pretty things aren't just what we see, they are what we taste! With all of these hot summer days lately, I was in need of a cool and refreshing treat. After googling homemade popsicle recipes, I came across this simple recipe for watermelon-mint ice pops. YUM! I was also excited to find another use for the mint that is growing (ok – exploding) on my back deck.

Watermelon-Mint Ice Pops
4 cups cubed watermelon
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup mint leaves
juice of 1 lime

Combine all ingredients in a blender and purée.

Pour into popsicle mold and freeze.
