I'm linking up with Kelly at Kelly the Kitchen Kop for Real Food Wednesday. I have been wanting to link up to this for months and finally decided to go for it!
I spent most of my weekend in the kitchen cooking & baking since I had a lot of produce to use. I have had to get creative in how I use our produce since B doesn't eat much of it, and it is too much for me to eat in one week!
I had 1/2 a watermelon and another type of melon that I have no idea what it was. It tasted like a mix between a cantaloupe and honeydew. Maybe a cantalodew! Sorry folks, long day at work.
There was no way we were going to eat up all the melon before it went bad, so I had to find something to do with it. I found a recipe online for watermelon popsicles that sounded fabulous. When I cook from recipes I usually make changes to it before I even try the original recipe, that is just how I roll!
So I took the watermelon popsicle recipe and made some changes. I removed the sugar because fruit is sweet enough by itself. Since I had more then just watermelon to use I mixed in the unknown melon and some frozen mixed berries. Here is the recipe:

Here are some photos of the popsicles

The finished product....so good!
This recipe is very flexible...so be creative and enjoy making your own popsicles. They are MUCH healthier then the ones sitting in the freezer isle of the grocery store.
