Virginia Feature: Watermelon Pops

Inspired by the French way of making small delicious treats out of very few ingredients, these fresh watermelon pops, or Purée de Pastèque, hit the spot on a hot summer day.

This homemade popsicle idea was first introduced to me by my Mom. When my baby was about nine months old and teething, my Mom suggested mini popsicles as a remedy to help soothe my daughter’s aching gums. It was also a fun way to introduce a new food she could eat by herself.

Now that my daughter is a walking talking two year old, she not only loves to eat the popsicles. She loves to make them too.
