This weekend was extremely hot and I literally must have had 5-6 of these ‘Watermelon – Mint – Chia Popsicles (V-GF)’. Come summertime and all I want to do is eat mostly cold food, drinks and lots of ice-creams. My favorite is fresh, fruity ice lollies or popsicles that are so easy to make at home and packed with health benefits. More than me, my friends and their kids love it…and yes, you read it right, the kids love it as they can only see ‘sprinkles’ in these cuties as the chia seeds are hidden deep within the bright red-orange color. watermelon-mint-chia-popsicles-veganNow, who doesn’t love a nice, fresh watermelon and it’s one of my favorite fruit to use in summer recipes, like this ‘Watermelon Cucumber Detox‘, Quick Watermelon Salad with Feta Mint and Basil‘ or my recent popular recipe for a ‘2 Ingredients Watermelon Vodka Slushie‘ and I do have many more coming ahead too.watermelon-ice-pops-recipeThese ‘Watermelon – Mint – Chia Popsicles (V-GF)’ are so easy and also makes for a great dessert for your summer parties. I totally eat them for a light dessert after a heavy meal and since watermelon and mint have both detoxing effects, it actually cools down the tummy and also helps in the digestion system. They are a hit with all age group and especially kids because of the sprinkles. Now, I didn’t add any sweetener or sprinkle as a part of the ingredient. The sprinkle is only added once the popsicles are ready to serve.watermelon-mint-chia-popsiclesInfact, this time, we made them with one of my ex-work colleague and her daughter and the kiddo absolutely loved the whole experience. Also, as some of your kid’s summer vacation would have started or starting soon and this could be a fun daytime activity to do with them. Just get their favorite sprinkles and enjoy these ‘Watermelon – Mint – Chia Popsicles (V-GF)’ together.Watermelon - Mint - Chia Popsicles (V-GF)As I always request, please do send me pictures of my recipes that you tried or you can use #easycookingwithmolly to post them on Facebook/Instagram or Twitter and I’d definitely share them over my social media.

    It's true that kids love popsicles. But at my house, it's my husband who's the biggest fan! These are so cute. I'll have to give them a try.

    The sugar amount is that with the sprinkles or without? I am looking for how much sugar is in 1 without the sprinkles. Also does the coconut water have added sugar or just the natural sugar? Thanks , hoping to try this if there is not too much sugar in 1.

      Hi Lone, It's all natural sugar from coconut water (which doesn't have any added sugar). The sugar amount calculated is mostly from the sprinkles. Sprinkles are just a decorative ingredient and the popsicle is made of all natural ingredients.
