Ingredients

  • 1 mini seedless watermelon, rind removed and chopped (yields approximately 5 cups of fruit)
  • 5 large mint leaves, finely chopped (or use 10 small mint leaves)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest

Instructions

  • Put the watermelon, mint, lime juice, and lime zest into a large food processor. Blend until a smooth puree is created. Stop the processor and scrape down the sides with a spatula if needed.

  • Pour the puree into a spouted container and distribute it evenly between your pop molds. I was able to fill 10 molds.
  • Put the tops/sticks on the molds and freeze for several hours (or overnight). Delicious and ready for you whenever you want a cold treat!

Notes

This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). The exact calorie count of this recipe will depend on the size you dice the watermelon and the size of your pop molds. I was able to make 10 pops, so they ended up at 25 calories each. That means you could have four popsicles for a 100-calorie snack if you wanted. (Wow!)
Watermelon is not a low-carb fruit, but like other melons, it is relatively low in calories and high in fluid volume. Unless your strategy is low-carb, I would consider watermelon to be a good dietary choice if you are looking for fat loss. Melons and berries were my top picks for fruit when I was on my weight loss journey.
