Sunset Watermelon Popsicles

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Claire de Luna

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.

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.
