Watermelon Blueberry Ice Pops

We made these as a treat when my niece was in town and they wanted to “cook”.  The process was easy and they had fun.  When it came time to eat, they loved the fact that this healthy treat was made by their little hands!  Also, the small portion of the “ice cube” treats makes it more “fun” for little people (and adults) to enjoy – not to mention this reduced the amount of food that is un-eaten.

2 cups watermelon (cubed and seeds removed)

1/4 cup fresh orange juice (juice from 1 large orange)

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (juice from 1 large lemon)

2 Tbsp honey or agave nectar

1 cup blueberries

Popsicle sticks or toothpicks

2 ice cube trays

In a blender of food processor, puree the watermelon, orange juice, lemon juice and honey.

Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray.  Put 2 -3 fresh blueberries in each cube.  Place in freezer for 45 minutes.  Then insert Popsicle sticks or tooth picks into each cube, freeze for 4 – 6 hours (until firm).

Enjoy!  These can be used as mini treats or even used to flavor your water.
