Hydrating Electrolyte Watermelon LMNT Popsicles

I love to know I'm staying hydrated and I love having fun with my kids even more.  Last week, we explored using LMNT in popsicle molds to beat the heat wave passing through. It was SO easy and a huge hit! 

Have you looked at the amount of added sugar in popsicles at the grocery store? It feels like we’re averaging 15g a pop! That’s why I feel great giving my kids these YUMMY electrolyte, no sugar added, easy, homemade popsicles.

Side note: we tried two methods - blending the watermelon and using watermelon chunks.  The blended version lasted frozen longer on the popsicle sticks but my kids preferred to see the watermelon chunks so it was a WIN-WIN!

Ingredients

2 cups watermelon

6 cups water

1 watermelon LMNT packet

Directions

If you're looking to create two different types of popsicles like we did, blend 1 cup of watermelon with 3 cups of water and half a watermelon LMNT packet in a blender or by hand with a whisk. Fill half of the popsicle molds with this blended mix.

Take the remaining cup of watermelon and chop it into large chunks.  Place the watermelon chunks evenly throughout the remaining 3 popsicle molds.  Separately, dissolve the second half of the watermelon LMNT packet into the remaining 3 cups of water.  Once dissolved, fill the remaining 3 popsicle molds that have watermelon chunks with this salty mixture. 

Insert the popsicle sticks into the mold and freeze for 2 hours or until frozen.
