Easy strawberry melon popsicles
I love summer, I love watermelon, and I love strawberries! But sometimes you can’t eat all the freshly picked strawberries and huge watermelon right away. So I like to turn leftovers into healthy smoothies or fruity ice cream treats!
Anyway, today I would like to share this idea for using up leftover fruit with you. So I share this strawberry watermelon popsicle recipe, which also works great with any other type of fruit. It’s super easy to make and the result is just perfect when you need a cool, refreshing and low-calorie snack. Of course, if you have an ice cream maker, you could also turn this into a fruit sorbet.

For this strawberry watermelon popsicle recipe, all you need is fresh fruit. I use:

Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake or Yogurt popsicles
If you love my vegan New York Cheesecake or the best Strawberry Cheesecake, you can also turn this recipe into Strawberry Cheesecake popsicles. To do this, simply purée just 8.8 oz (250 g) of strawberries and then layer it with 8.8 oz (250 g) of cashew cream (see vegan Magnum recipe) or vegan coconut or vanilla yogurt in the ice cream molds.
