I think it’s safe to say we can all feel global warming taking its toll on our planet. The past few days have been hotter than ever. I don’t remember ever having a similar heat wave in Lebanon except for one time only, a few years ago. The best thing we can all do is stay in air-conditioned spaces until we can soak our bodies in water all day long on Saturday. I suggest you also make these refreshingly delicious popsicles to go with your floating air mattress.
The recipe is composed solely of fruits and requires 3 small and simple steps. The only thing you need to “invest” in is a Popsicle mold, which can be found in big supermarkets.
What you’ll need (for 8 medium popsicles):
- 1/2 watermelon
- 1 Plum, sliced
- 1 Peach, sliced
- 1 Kiwi, sliced
How to make it:
- Crush the watermelon with a blender handle (or with a manual crusher if you don’t have one).
- Place the sliced fruits in the molds and pour the watermelon juice over a sifter on top.
- Cover with sticks and freeze for 2 hours (or overnight if you’re making them in advance).
And that’s it! Three easy and simple steps to freshness!
Here's to hoping temperatures will drop soon. Until then, stay cool.
