It's parade day! Hi there and welcome to the first week of Popsicle Parade! During the next three months we'll beat the summer heat together by trying a new popsicle recipe each week. The recipe of the week will be posted on Monday, and I'll be documenting our popsicle adventure on Instagram (@simpleanalogy) so check in for more pictures!
Let's start this thing off right by announcing the winner of the rocket popsicle molds. Sarah in the Woods who wrote that strawberry is her favorite flavor is the winner of the set of eight rocket shaped popsicle molds! You should have an email in your inbox!
And now for our popsicle recipe of the week:
When I buy a watermelon, I never know just how it's gonna be when I open it up. So when I bought my first one of the year, I mixed my thumpin' test (should sound very deep) with a little wish that this watermelon would be perfect. And it was!
Cubed watermelon, hulled and quartered strawberries, juiced lime, and a little sugar make a delightful combination! The ratio of strawberries to watermelon is perfect - neither flavor overpowers the other. One thing you should know... I NEVER strain my popsicles. It takes longer to make popsicles if you strain them, and I like the quick and easy method! Plus, I like the texture that the seeds and pulp add.
My husband is a landscaper and works in the heat all day long. My teenage sons help him during the summer as well, so these popsicles really hit the spot! They were a super good start to the popsicle parade at my house.
