Easy Watermelon Lemonade Ice Pops has to be the easiest recipe ever! With only two ingredients, fresh yummy watermelon, and frozen lemonade concentrate, and two steps you can have a delicious, light and refreshing after school snack that your kids will love.

Even though it may be cooling down in some parts of the country, It’s still screaming hot in North Florida, and nothing tastes better on a hot day than an ice pop! They are also the perfect snack for your little kids, coming in at only 95 calories, and they can also be a delicious treat for the big kids in your house too! So why not cool down with these fun, quick and easy, frozen and healthy homemade treats today.
Wondering why I am calling these frozen treats “ice pops” instead of “popsicles®”? Well, it’s because the term “popsicle®” is actually trademarked and has been since 1923! So like “Coca Cola®” and Realtor® even though most of us probably think “popsicle” when we think of ice pops, just like not all real estate sales persons are Realtors®, not all ice pops are popsicles®!
As I told you, there are only two ingredients in this easy recipe: fresh watermelon and a can of frozen lemonade concentrate. That’s it! You can make them look fancy by using an ice pop mold as I have, but no worries if you don’t have one. Simply use small paper cups and ice pop sticks which you can find at any hobby store, and you will be in business.
When you are ready to make Watermelon Lemonade Ice Pops, gather your ingredients and place the watermelon and lemonade concentrate in a blender or food processor. Process for 10-20 seconds or until the mixture is smooth. Pour this mixture through a wire mesh strainer to catch any seeds or solids.
Fill up your molds leaving a little bit of room at the top because the mixture will expand when frozen. Place the molds in the freezer for an hour to partially freeze and then insert the ice pop sticks. Freeze for an additional 3 hours or until solid.
*To make it easy to remove the ice pops from the mold, briefly dip them in warm water for no more than 3-4 seconds. They should then pop right out.
