Healthy Dessert: Watermelon Strawberry Mint Popsicles

If Summer heat and humidity has you craving something cold and delicious, then reaching for a pint and a spoon could be the reason your waistline is expanding. These low-calorie watermelon strawberry mint popsicles are sweet, refreshing, and, with only three ingredients, a cinch to make.

You'll need a couple of BPA-free popsicle molds. I'm a fan of ones made by Tovolo because the brand has tons of fun designs including standard bar-like popsicles, twin pops (seen here), rocket pops, and star pops. They're about $12, so you can afford to buy a few and experiment with different recipes.
