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.

4 cups of cubed seedless watermelon (about half a medium melon)
12 fresh mint leaves
10 large strawberries (leave four whole and cut the rest into bite-size chunks)
- Blend watermelon, mint leaves, and four whole strawberries in a food processor or blender until smooth.
- Put a few chunks of strawberries in the bottom of each popsicle mold. Fill halfway with watermelon mixture and then add a few more strawberries to each mold. Fill almost to the top with the mixture and place the sticks on top.
- Freeze for at least three hours and enjoy!
Makes about eight popsicles.
