I'm all about having a sweet treat in the evening. Truth is, I have a horrible sweet tooth. The reason or at least the person I am going to blame is my Dad. I'm guessing there's a malt shop in heaven and my Dad is the number one "soda jerk" as they used to call them. When I was kid, every night, I'm remembering pretty much without fail, I had a dish of ice cream or a malt. My Dad made the best malts, the kind that used the malted milk powder and lots of ice cream and syrup. So you get the picture? You see why I have a sweet tooth!!
In an effort to try and manage the calories in those sweet treats, I dusted the ice crystals of the Zoku and made Popsicles. If you're not familiar with how the Zoku works, you pour in the liquid and in 5 - 9 minutes, you have Popsicles. Easy!! The directions say you can make a second batch without refreezing but I never had very good luck with making a second batch. These make a perfect summertime treat and a super nutritious snack kids will love to eat.

- In a blender, add a heaping cup of watermelon.

- After filling the Zoku maker, I poured the remaining in regular freezer pops mold.
