These are Delicious! I concocted this from three different recipes for the most watermelon flavor. The orange juice paired with the watermelon gives these popsicles the color of a beautiful sunset, which is a great time to have one.
- Cut watermelon into chunks, and puree in a blender until you have 5 cups. Add orange juice and sugar; blend. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
- Cooking time is freezer time.
- This recipe will fill two popsicle molds of 10 each.
Well, I for one don't like orange flavor in my watermelon, but then that's just me. I've had good luck just pureeing watermelon and freezing it. It's a great way to extend watermelon season. I like to make dripless popsicles. For this recipe, you could cut the amount of puree down to maybe 3 cups and mix up a small box of watermelon-flavor jell-o according to package directions, and combine the two. Nothing more. These hold their moisture longer in the freezer too. You could puree cantaloupe and mix it with, maybe pineapple or lemon or apricot. I do like cantaloupe and apricot.
I did not care for these popsicles. They had an odd, bitter taste to them. My husband and I ate one, but I ended up throwing out the rest. I'm sorry I wasn't able to give this recipe a better review, but I am glad to see others here enjoyed the recipe.
These were great!!!!!! They were quite refreshing and great for a hot summer day. The only problem is, we made too many popsicles and eventually they weren't quite as delicious because they'd been in the freezer for a while. I'd say you should make a small amount because they'll eventually get a little less yummy in the freezer. But they're still very delicious, thanks for the recipe!
