Watermelon Rosemary Lemonade Popsicles

2012 June 1

There I was, lying in bed dreaming about recipes (yup, I do that) and the thought of cool refreshing popsicles floated into my head. It might have been the stuffiness of the dark bedroom or the fact that its getting entirely too hot to still be using our down comforter, but either way popsicles sounded heavenly. Earlier that day I ordered the Watermelon Rosemary Lemonade from Lemonade and was head over heals in love with the flavors. Do you see the light bulb coming folks?

The next day I made Watermelon Rosemary Lemonade Popsicles. They were tart and sweet, just like good lemonade should be, and all grown up with a subtle hint of rosemary. This recipe will be on heavy rotation this summer!

Watermelon Rosemary Lemonade Popsicles

Makes 10 Standard Sized Popsicles

The juice from 4 cups of diced watermelon pureed and strained
2/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 5 lemons)
1 cup rosemary simple syrup (recipe follows)


1. Place chopped watermelon in a food processor or blender and process until watermelon is juiced. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, saving the juice and discarding the pulp.

2. Combine watermelon juice, lemon juice and rosemary syrup in a bowl and stir to combine. Fill popsicle mold with watermelon lemonade.

3. Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for 2-3 seconds.

Rosemary Syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cups sugar
1 heaping Tbs fresh rosemary leaves


1. Place sugar, water and rosemary in a pot over heat and stir until sugar dissolves. (This is quick) Allow mixture to cool to room temp. Strain liquid and discard rosemary.
