Make your own watermelon popsicles!
Nothing is as good in the summer as a frozen icy treat. And when you can make your own with just a few simple ingredents, life is extra sweet. Here's how to create popsicles so home-style you won't be surprised to see bluebirds land on your fingertips.

What you need:
3 lbs. seedless watemelon
fresh-squeezed lime juice to taste (roughly 1 Tbsp.)
regular or chili salt to taste (just a pinch or two)
What you do:
Puree the watermelon in a blender until liquified. Add lime juice and salt to taste. If you like your popsicles a little sweeter, blend in a little sugar. Freeze in popsicle molds--or use a paper cup covered with tin foil, with a popsicle stick inserted. You can also use an ice cube tray covered with plastic wrap, with toothpicks inserted.
