Watermelon Aloe Popsicles

     Well, it’s certainly been awhile!

I’ve been through a great transition recently in terms of my job position and I couldn’t be happier (albeit very tired).  I know the last post was Memorial Day weekend.  Don’t hate me!  I’m back for this last patriotic holiday before the school year starts again with a farewell summer recipe for your get together (or singular enjoyment). ^_^

I grabbed a personal watermelon today before they stop becoming so readily available and pumpkins begin to take their places in the markets.  I love watermelon for it’s refreshing quality and sweet flavor.  It pairs so well with salt. 😉

In these popsicles, I combined watermelon with aloe juice to maximize the hydration to 200%.  Aloe is great as a supplement to water if you need to quench your thirst and soothe your skin.  I think its mellow flavor is easy to pair with anything.

This recipe is very easy if you have your own reusable popsicle molds.  If you don’t, an ice cube tray and some popsicle sticks will do the trick!  Or, you could make ice cubs sans sticks and put them in cocktails or mocktails! =0

Either way, I’ve got you covered.

I hope you have a relaxing, rejuvenating and hydrating weekend.  Also, if anyone is on the East Coast like me, I hope you stay safe during the storm.  Just have a party inside with your cat.  Well, that’s what I’ll be doing, anyway.

​See you for back to school!

Watermelon Aloe Popsicles

​Ingredients

  • 2 cups cubed watermelon, frozen (preferably seedless)
  • 1 cup pure aloe juice (preferably organic)
  • pinch stevia/sugar, optional
  • pinch salt
  • zest of 1 lime, optional
  • water, to thin out

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender or food processor.  I used the tamp on my Vitamix to get everything blended smoothly.
  2. Blend until smooth, adding sweetener and salt to taste, if you prefer.  Add a little water if the mixture is too thick.
  3. Pour the slush mixture into ice pop molds with sticks, or use an ice cube tray if you like.  You can also drink it; it’s delicious. 😉
  4. Freeze overnight, pop out of the mold, and enjoy the refreshment!  ^_^
