Cool down this summer with our Watermelon Mint Ice Pops! These tasty treats are perfect for pool days, after-dinner desserts, or picnic dates with your family. Not only are these ice pops full of fresh flavors, but they are also packed full of nutrition! Watermelon is a great source of vitamin C, lycopene, and phenolic compounds such as flavenoids and carotenoids, which makes it an important fruit to consume in the summertime. Thanks to lycopene, studies have shown that watermelon consumption can help reduce inflammatory response, and as the watermelon ripens, the lycopene content increases (1). So go ahead and enjoy this juicy fruit while it’s in season–it’s a refreshing snack during these hot months!
