Look who showed up at the photo shoot! Ella and Henry were very interested in what I had to photograph -- a delicious strawberry-watermelon popsicle -- and they were hoping for a taste. These fruity pops are a delicious summer afternoon treat, though I did find the prep to be a bit labor intensive, particularly the blending of the fruit. My blender doesn't work very well without liquid (I would love a Vitamix blender, but maybe they need liquid also in order to work well?). If I make these again, I might try a food processor. I also did not discard all of the fruit solids because I wanted a bit of it in the popsicles, for substance. I hope you give these tasty pops a try before the summer is over!
- 2 pounds seedless watermelon, diced
- 1/2 pound strawberries, hulled and cut in half
