Happy Watermelon Day, girlfriends!
Today, as my seasonal sisters know, is Watermelon Day!
Here in sunny LA we have a very, humid and hot Thursday. It wasn't hard to convince me to create a cooling little watermelon snack. This one is the perfect thing if you want a quick, easy, and yet very festive healthy snack. I am bringing these beauties down to the pool with a book to end this Thursday with a little self care.
Here comes a quick tutorial:
- Pick a watermelon.
The best tip for picking a perfectly ripe watermelon is to simply knock on them. If it sounds hollow with a hard shell, that's your girl!
- Grab a sharp knife and some popsicle sticks.
Don't you love a recipe with two ingredients?! #easyglam
- Cut the watermelon across the middle into 1-inch thick rounds. From these rounds, cut triangle pieces.
- Make a slice in the rind about half an inch wide. Then do another one right next to the previous cut to create a home for your popsicle stick.
- Then simply pop the popsicle sticks into the melon pieces and put them in the freezer for a few hours.
You have now created your very own, totally healthy, watermelon popsicles. Perfect as an after dinner treat while watching your glamflix or as a little pick me up while enjoying the last lazy days of summer.
If you wanna make them a little extra (extra delicious and an extra caloric investment), you can melt chocolate and dip the frozen popsicles. Roll them in shredded coconut, sprinkles or cocoa nibs before you re-freeze them for an hour. A little something for you fellow chocolate lovers out there!
Hope you are having a beautiful, seasonal week and this quick recipe can serve as an inspiration for tonight's dessert or tomorrow's snack-time.
Were you able to squeeze in a Watermelon Day celebration? I'd love to hear how you celebrated!
Lots of love from LA!
P.S. Can you tell I'm making a comeback? Two blogs, two videos, and quite a few instastories this week! I'm on a roll, sisters. ;)
