DIYSpiked Watermelon Popsicles

Hi guys! Ashley from Sugar and Cloth here again, back with an amazing recipe to beat the end-of-summer heat! Just when you think watermelon couldn’t make the summer any better, they go and get a little makeover and come back looking cute as ever … and with a splash of rum. I don’t know about you, but that’s just as good as a cabana boy in my book.

These spiked watermelon popsicles are sweet, refreshing, and fully equipped with a clever little rind drip tray built in!

Ingredients, yields 12 pops:
  • 2.5 lbs of fresh, seedless watermelon (basically half of a small melon)
  • 4 tablespoons (or 2 oz.) of watermelon Monin syrup
  • 8 oz. of light rum (or the same amount of orange juice for non-alcoholic)
  • splash of Sprite
  • small, rectangular cuts of rind the same size as your popsicle molds

Cut the watermelon away from the rind and blend it in a blender. Pour it into a bowl or a pitcher with a spout to make it easy to pour into the popsicle molds, then add the rest of the ingredients and stir. ​Pour the mixture into the molds, and insert the popsicle sticks through the rind by making a small slit with a knife. Be sure that the rind fits into the mold just enough to touch the mixture (to be able to freeze into place), but isn’t so small that it falls through the top opening. Then freeze the pops overnight.

Before trying to remove the pops from the mold, run the tips of the popsicles in the mold under warm water for about 20 seconds. The popsicles will have a soft texture (as does watermelon), so pulling too hard on them will make them break if you’re not careful.  Before serving, you can drizzle a little dash of sugar for extra punch and cuteness!

CelebrityCrush of the Week: Chris Pratt!

Chris Pratt

2014 has officially become the year of Pratt. If you didn’t already love him as the oh-so-adorable Andy Dwyer on Parks & Recreation, there is NO doubt that you are positively drooling over Chris Pratt as Star-Lord in the summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy! This lovable actor takes charm to another level and has become a household name in recent months, taking the helm of one of the most highly-regarded comic book movies! And next year is going to find him as the lead in the much-anticipated Jurassic World, which means a lot more eye candy in our future! So there you have it, LuLu*s loves. Enjoy your weekend with a little bit of Chris Pratt on the brain!
