Strawberry Watermelon Mint Elixir & Popsicles

Strawberry Watermelon Mint Elixir {Juice] & Popsicles // The Spicy RD I could have called this lycopene loaded liquid creation “Strawberry Watermelon Mint Juice”, but don’t you think elixir sounds way more exotic and enticing??? And, oh, yes, I have made popsicles for you too!

I hadn’t planned to post this recipe, seeing as it was a spur of the moment experiment to use up my overripe strawberries and leftover chunks of watermelon that we have been slurping up over the past few days, and I was also hoping to have my Hawaii photos up and ready to share with you by now, but you know what?  It takes an awfully long time to sort through 1065 photos.

Yep. I counted.

Don’t you just LOVE digital film?

Anyways, in the meantime, I thought you would definitely want to try making your own batch of this magical strawberry watermelon mint elixir, and popsicles, because it is SO easy to make, SO delicious, and SO nutritious and good for you too loaded with lycopene, potassiumand vitamin A & C. Plus you get a little bit of fiber since you blend the whole fruit, and there is no added sugar.

Yes, super nutritious, and hydrating indeed!

Strawberry Watermelon Mint Elixir {Juice} & Popsicles

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 2 cups of juice or ~ 6 popsicles

Calories per serving: 70 calories/cup of juice or 25 calories/pop

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh watermelon, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, stems removed
  • Juice from one lime

Instructions

  1. For the Elixir/Juice: Place all ingredients in a powerful blender, and blend on high speed until juicy and well combined, and mint is all chopped up. Enjoy straight up over ice, or combine with sparkling water for a Strawberry Watermelon Mint Sparkler.
  2. For the popsicles: Pour juice into popsicle molds and freeze.

Notes

I used my Zoku popsicle maker to make super quick pops, but you can use any popsicle molds to make these-they will just take longer to freeze, and your number of servings may change.

  1. I don’t know what’s more beautiful, the photo of Hawaii, or your popsicles!!?? Both. I need to get my popsicle molds out this year. I’ve only used them once. What’s wrong with me?! I’m too busy using my ice cream maker I guess!

    • Thanks Gina! You need to ust out your Popsicle molds and I need to bust out my ice cream maker to make some of your amazing Strawberry Cheesecake Ice cream :-)

  2. You had me a lycopene!! These look delish!!

  3. Yum!
    You know, I have a zoku and have only used it once!! I need to change that!
    I can’t wait to see more pics of your trip! It looks just amazing!

    • Thanks Kristen! I used my Zoku a lot when I first got it, but then haven’t used it in awhile, but I will definitely be making more of these pops (and others) soon :-)

  4. Love your elixir – so pretty and summery! Can’t wait for those Hawaii photos too :)

  5. Ooh I love this two in one recipe! And Hawaii is one of my favorite places on earth. Hope you’re enjoying your summer!

  6. I’ll take both! Sounds so refreshing EA! Can’t wait to see more about your Hawaii trip – that’s our family’s favorite destination!

  7. “Elixir” definitely sounds cooler. =) And this looks SO amazing – perfectly refreshing for these hot, humid days we’re having!

  8. GORGEOUS! Pretty linens, pretty straws…and how did you grow such pretty mint?

  9. I feel cooler just looking at this! Yes, it is finally hot here. And has been for nearly two weeks. But as only some public buildings -and no one’s house – have a/c we are having to drink loads to keep cool. Thanks for this. And I just know it tastes as good as it looks, too. I recently made a frozen watermelon, mint, lime and chilli cooler/cold soup for one of my nutrition groups. That is NOT something I can normally get away with doing. It is always hot soup and hot drinks! Anyway, looking forward to seeing a selection of your 1000+ Hawaii photos. Glad to have you back x

  10. looks like a great drink :-) and wow thats a lot of photos to look through

  11. Can’t wait for your take on the Big Island!!! I hope you loved it :) xo

  12. So summery and refreshing :)

  13. Those popsicles look so delicious and refreshing. I need to buy some Popsicle molds and try them out!

  14. this looks so refreshing must use mint more

  15. I wonder if I could use this to get my kids to eat something nutritious for a change.
