Watermelon is one of my all-time favourite fruits. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing like biting into cold sweet cubes of juicy watermelon to cool off. I decided to take it one step further, and created some Watermelon Popsicles!
It’s super simple to make, with just pure watermelon being the main ingredient. I threw in some fresh chopped mint and a squeeze of lemon to brighten up the flavours, but be careful not to add too much so that it’s not overpowering.
I also spiked these with some Samuel Adams Boston Lager beer, which you can usually get it at any local liquor store in Canada. I got mine from a BC Liquor Store here in Vancouver.
See below for the recipe!
-2 cups watermelon cubed
-1 tablespoon chopped mint
-Squeeze of lemon juice
-1/2 cup beer (I used Samuel Adams Boston Lager)
-1 tablespoon simple syrup (optional depending on how sweet the watermelon is)
1. Blend watermelon with mint and lemon juice until smooth
2. Add beer to mixture
3. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze
4. Add popsicle sticks after 20 minutes
5. Freeze an additional hour or until completely set.
Happy popsicle making!
