What do you need on a HOT day in August? Something you can hold in your grubby fingers. Something cold and sweet and sour all at once. Yup! You need a Pink and Yellow Popsicle!
These popsicles are the easiest thing in the world to make. It's a great way to use of the last of that watermelon that you are so tired of eating. Why did you buy that big thing anyway?
Add some lemon juice, some sugar, and you've got yourself a perfect treat on a hot summer day. Better hurry because summer's almost over.
Pink and Yellow Pops (Makes 10 pops)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup hot water
2 cups cubed and seeded watermelon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
7 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup hot water
2/3 cup lemon juice
1. First make the watermelon layer. In a blender combine sugar and water until sugar is mostly dissolved. Add watermelon and lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Divide among 10 popsicle molds. Watermelon layer should only fill half of mold.
2. Freeze for about 1 and 1/2 hours. When almost set, remove from freezer and push a wooden stick into the mixture. Return molds to freezer and freeze until hard, at least another hour.
3. Next make the lemon layer. Combine hot water and sugar in a bowl or large measuring glass. Stir until sugar is almost dissolved. Add the lemon juice. Refrigerate lemon mixture until chilled.
4. Remove popsicle molds from freezer. Divide lemon mixture among molds. Freeze until completely frozen, at least 2 more hours.
