Coconut & Watermelon Popsicles

There are few things that say summer more than popsicles. I still remember my mom’s old Tupperware popsicle molds filled lovingly with homemade popsicles. (Ahh, nostalgia.) Another thing that automatically comes with summer in my mind is watermelon. And down here in the south, the watermelons are plenteous. So we’re takin’ advantage of ’em.

Last summer my kids spotted these little popsicle molds at our local grocery store and begged for them. Of course my husband and I caved, because what kind of crunchy parents would we be if we didn’t let our kids experience homemade popsicles? Not only is making them is soooo much cheaper than buying them, but when you make your own they won’t be filled with sugar, food coloring, and whatever other garbage is in those store-bought ones. (Sorry all you otter-pop lovers.)

These little beauties have only two ingredients in them. Yep, you heard that right: two. I’m pretty sure you can guess what they are by reading the title…

In the happiness of learning and popsicles, my nerdy little 6-year old had to read up on the frozen treats. She discovered that they were invented by a little boy named Frank who lived in San Francisco in the early 1900’s. Unfortunately she thought this meant we had to move all the way to California in order to make popsicles…

She was quite glad when I assured her we could stay right here in South Carolina. 😉
