Raspberry Ribbon Watermelon Pop

Our raspberries are in full swing! I was a little worried as we went out to pick some that looked almost ready a couple days earlier and the birds had eaten them. I got some pinwheels out there to keep them away before the berries fully came in and we have buckets and buckets of berries! The girls and I have been out there picking them and of course we just picked over 5qts of blueberries the day before we started going out there and picking our raspberries but that is perfectly fine as according to my daughter we are fruitivores, yep we love our fruits (and veggies). Speaking of that we have been going through watermelon like crazy for over a month now! I have been buying at least 2 a week and I try to freeze some for smoothies and slushies but every time I turn around the bowl is empty! As we picked a lot of berries I have been eating them daily for breakfast. One morning I was eating the last of one bucket and at the bottom there were a bunch of smashed berries. Probably from the weight of all the berries and they don’t last too long anyways. I also noticed there was some watermelon that was in the fridge and one still on the table. It looks like the watermelon consumption has tapered a little with all the berries in the house (it also could be the fact that we have cherries, a flat of mango, a dozen peaches, grapes…. ) so they have lots of options. I decided to clean out the fridge a little and whip up some raspberry watermelon popsicles. These can be blended or layered with raspberry ribbons. My oldest likes them blended together, my youngest and I love the layers so we get the watermelon and than the tart raspberries. Either way they are delicious and healthy! Healthy quick popsicles are a must in the summer and when the girls get hot from jumping on the trampoline, playing outside, playing soccer, or after gymnastics they can grab a quick snack that I always say yes to. I even let them have them for breakfast, yes because really it is the same as having fresh fruit or a smoothie but we all know sometimes things are just fun and taste better on a stick! They also work great when you have a sweet craving and you just want a popsicle instead of getting sucked into eating a big bowl of fruit! We really can’t be the only ones that do that and polish off a whole watermelon in an hour.
