The variations are limitless and it’s easy to customize to your family’s personal tastes. Better yet, let everyone mix up their own flavors.

Summer days mean kids wandering from fridge to pantry and back again look for snacks. Fresh homemade popsicles are the perfect option for satisfying those all day snack cravings!

It’s the perfect opportunity to get into the kitchen as a family and make healthier choices together. And just as important, it doesn’t take a fancy vacation to create summertime memories that we can all look back on with joy. These moments together preparing a treat are fleeting and so special.


Summer food memories always seem to include sweet, ripe watermelon. Made of 92% water, one cup provides 21% of the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C and 18% of the RDI for vitamin A. It’s also a good source of lycopene, which has been linked to lowering the risk of certain cancers.

Refreshing and satisfying, these homemade treats are our new favorite way to indulge, minus the preservatives and added sugar of store bought options.

Inspired by this iconic summer fruit, we asked Tess Masters of The Blender Girl to create this home-made DIY watermelon mint popsicle recipe.  It’s the right mix of sweet, fresh and tangy.
