Watermelon Popsicle

Who doesn't love a cool popsicle on a hot summer afternoon? I absolutely do (anytime of the year) and thats what I chose for the fourth day of the marathon.
                        Mom made popsicles with all kinds of fruits for us in summer. She still does when I go home :) .Last year li'l IB had his first popsicle and he loved it. He kept asking mom everday to give him "oka popsicum please" and she would give him one. After coming back , he wanted one here too but somehow we couldnot make them.We made them yesterday as it was a little warm .Its the first time li'l IB helped me out in the kitchen and we both enjoyed it.  Li'l IB wanted to take some pics as well so I gave him the camera and he took some good snaps too. Later we were too busy enjoying the popsicles that I forgot all about my camera and now we can't find it coz li'l IB put it in a 'safe place' (he doesnot want to tell us where) and I can't upload the pictures.

Ingredients:
4 cups watermelon(seedless), cut into cubes
1 tbsp  sugar (I've not used sugar as the watermelon  I used was very sweet)

  • Blend the watermelon, sugar  till smooth.
  • Pour into popsicle molds, insert tops and freeze for atleast 6 hrs or till the popsicles are hard.
  • When ready to eat, take them out of the freezer and run them under warm water for 10 secs and pull the popsicle out slowly.
  • Enjoy!!!
