Recipe ReDux Post # 23 Strawberry Watermelon Popsicles With a Hint of Rose






“Floral Flavors” is the June Recipe ReDux theme and the challenge was to develop a recipe using edible flowers or products made with them. Now this was totally foreign territory for me and I was definitely intrigued and a bit intimidated to say the least!  Rose extract seemed like a fun ingredient to try so I decided to go with it and create a healthy popsicle recipe to celebrate the start of summer.  This recipe is clean, easy, delicious and super low calorie! Plus the hint of rose goes a long way to add a unique, almost royal flavor.  Try it out and check out these flowery creations made by the awesome Recipe Redux folks!

Ingredients:

1 generous cup of cubed seedless watermelon
1 heaping cup of sliced strawberries
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of honey
1/8 teaspoon rose extract (optional)
6 3-4 ounce popsicle holders

Directions:

Add the watermelon, honey, lemon juice and rose to a blender and blend for 30-60 seconds. Then throw in the strawberries and blend another minute or so until a smooth mixture is formed.  Add about 1/3 cup to each popsicle holder for a total of 6 popsicles and freeze for 6-8 hours.

Makes 6 popsicles, six servings

These look lovely,although a little too chilli for us below the equator at this time of year - I'll pencil them in for summer =)
