How to Pick a Good Watermelon

My tactic of eeny meeny miney mo has served me well but it’s not really scientific. This article from Fifteen Spatulas has some awesome tips to help you snag a good one.

Here’s How to Make These Cooling Treats

Place your watermelon, lime juice, and mint in a blender or food processor. Blend!

Pour into your popsicle molds of choice (these are the ones we have but they’re so much cheaper at TJ Maxx or Marshalls) and freeze until solid. That’s it!

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • There will be some separation during the freezing process; totally normal. That is the watermelon “meat” (that can’t be the right word, can it?) and the natural juices (it is called WATERmelon after all). It all tastes delicious.
  • Keep some mint in the freezer to make sure you always have the ingredients on hand for these. Related: Freezing Mint.
  • Most popsicle molds will need to be run under hot water for a few seconds after coming out of the freezer. This will help you release the popsicle without cracking the mold.
