#MMHM: An Easy Memorial Day Treat: Watermelon Popsicles

It is hard to believe that this upcoming weekend is Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer!! The weather looks like it is going to warm up and hopefully we will get a nice warm long weekend. Typically, during summer BBQ’s my kids will go after the treat table, patriotic cupcakes. cookies and candies are always a hit, although not always the best choices. Sugar rush kicks in and the kids go from hyper playing to crashing meltdowns. I am not one that forbids any food group, although I try to teach my children balance between healthy and the occasional treat food. I have made these Watermelon Popsicles for numerous summer BBQ’s, birthday parties or just a poolside treat and they are always a popular choice for both kids and adults.  I originally saw the recipe on Skinnytaste and knew that it would appeal to my kids. I don’t know what it is about putting food on a stick, but it always makes it seem more fun!

This is so easy to prepare. All you need is a large watermelon, cut into triangle shapes (keep the rind on and do not cut too thin). Then make a small slit in the middle of the rind on each triangle, stick large popsicle sticks inside the rind and serve 🙂

Happy Monday 🙂 Jenn
