Watermelon Strawberry Pops ~ a Raw and Vegan Recipe for Kids!

makes about 8 pops ~ $.49 per pop


ingredients

  • 2 cups watermelon chunks ($2.00)
  • 1 cup strawberries ($1.00)
  • stevia or sweetener of your choice (optional)
  • juice of 1 lemon ($.60)
  • 1 cup green juice (I used Dave’s Alfalfa Juice Powder) ($.30)

This is fun, delicious, and easy enough for most kids to make themselves with just a little bit of help.

Using a high speed blender, puree the watermelon, strawberries, and half the lemon juice together. Sweeten, if desired. Pour into popsicle molds and insert sticks, leaving a half inch space at the top for the green layer.

Freeze for a couple hours, then mix up a cup of green juice with a couple tablespoons lemon juice and sweetener, if you’d like it sweeter. Pour this on top of the watermelon/strawberry layer. Freeze again until solid.

I’ve used plastic popsicle molds here, because that’s what I had on hand. But I’m moving away from all plastics … paper cups and wooden sticks would be easier, cuter, and safer.

  2. I hear what you are saying about plastics but I think you'll need to check out the paper cups quite carefully as they have waxes on to help waterproof them and this might be less than ideal.
