watermelon agave popsicles

makes 12-14 popsicles depending on the size of your molds

8 cups of seeded, balled or cubed watermelon
1/4 cup of agave nectar

In a blender or food processer combine 8 cups of watermelon and 1/4 cup of agave nectar and puree. Then pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and freeze until hardened.


A few tips for inserting popsicle sticks:

~If using wooden popsicle sticks soak for at least 30 minutes before making the popsicle mixture.
~In the picture above I used a sturdy paper straw as the sticks. I froze the
popsicles until slushy and then inserted the straws so they would not float to the top.
