Watermelon smoothie popsicles

Watermelon Smoothie Popsicles

We can’t seem to get enough watermelon these days.  In fact, I just went out and bought two more this morning.  Parfaits, lemonade, ginger coolers, or just out of hand ~ each and every watermelon treat is refreshing.

I found a recipe for watermelon smoothie popsicles not long ago, and the world got even better.  The funny thing about it is that Jim and I have fallen in love with watermelon smoothies for breakfast, and the heck with the freezer!  So whether you have the patience to wait for these yummy popsicles or if you’d rather just go straight from blender to belly, I think you’re going to love this.

Recipe:  Watermelon Smoothie Popsicles

(adapted from Family Fresh Cooking)

1 1/2 – 2 c. seedless watermelon (or watermelon with seeds removed)
3/4 c. vanilla Greek yogurt
your favorite sweetener, to taste  (I use 1 packet of Stevia sweetener.)

Puree watermelon in a blender or food processor.  Add yogurt and sweetener of choice.  Blend well.  Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

Recipe:  Watermelon Blueberry Smoothies

(I don’t really measure out the ingredients, but just toss them all into the blender and mix it up.  This has become our favorite go-to breakfast!)

seedless watermelon
vanilla Greek yogurt
a handful of frozen blueberries
sweetener, to taste  (1 Stevia packet works for us.)

    I hate this weather. So, I’m gonna have Grandy make this tomorrow! Of course, I’ll help by “supervising.” =) Perfect strategy, huh?!

    These sound amazing!! I was just checking out another blog and read a comment from you that says you pre-measure and freeze your shredded zucchini. I tried it last year and I wrote on my bag how much was in there, but when I thawed it, I had way less and a tonz of water? So, I was wondering, when you thaw your zucchini do you use the new amount that’s in there or do you use what it would have been and add all that water too? I would love to try and freeze some again, but I am not sure how to go about it? Thanks for your help.

    Jenn – That’s a good question! I’ve never dumped in the water with the zucchini, but just used the zucchini that was there. I’ve had good results for the things I’ve baked with it, so I hope you do too!
