3-ingredient watermelon ice pops

As tempting as ice cream is at the time of year (I mean, just look at this and this) having ready-to-dig-in, healthy, cool snacks right in your freezer really helps keep a balanced diet during the summer months. These watermelon ice pops will do just that: you can make them in a matter of minutes, they’re jam-packed with fresh fruit and a great snack for both kids and adults alike.

I used this  ice pop mold to make them –it’s incredibly inexpensive, doesn’t take up too much room in the freezer and is really easy to wash. It’s definitely on my summer must-have list! 

Watermelon Ice Pops

4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
2 tsp liquid honey
10 fresh mint leaves

In food processor, combine watermelon, honey and mint; puree until smooth. Pour into ice pop molds; freeze until firm, about 3 hours. Chill any remaining watermelon to enjoy as juice.
