Watermelon Sangria Popsicles
These popsicles are easy and delicious when you need a refreshing break. Also included is a kid friendly non alcoholic variation.
At home 24/7 with your kids, significant other or by yourself, these are challenging times for all.
Many people seem to be taking more cocktail breaks at home and drinking to relax the nerves with demanding kids constantly needing something or just personality conflicts as we are all on edge!
One way is to enjoy these refreshing popsicles. Make a non alcoholic kid version at the same time, so that you can each be enjoying a popsicle. No one will know yours has a little extra kick. I certainly won’t tell!
Once you have these popsicle molds, Watermelon Sangria Popsicles are easy shmeezy to put together. Just make sure you have enough room in your freezer to put the stand. My freezer is usually packed so this can sometimes be a challenge, which is why I have so few popsicle recipes posted.
These Watermelon Sangria Popsicles can easily be adapted to what you have on hand!
- Use regular orange juice if you don’t have any blood oranges.
- Make a kid friendly version and replace the wine with lemon-lime soda like Sprite or 7-up and omit the simple syrup!
- Use other melon if you don’t have watermelon. Cantaloupe, Honeydew or Canary Melon are all great substitutes.
- Berries can also be substituted for the melon.
Although many of us are still spending most of our days indoors, if you have backyards or go for daily walks, the days are now getting warmer.
Frozen treats is what we all crave when the warm weather comes. Here are some refreshing ice cream and other coolers for you to enjoy!
