Growing up, I always considered myself an ice cream girl.

Every year when summertime hit, I would beg my parents for a lift to the local ice cream shop — where a cookie-dough-stuffed cone would be waiting for me. Yum!

Although I always loved the cool, rich taste of ice cream, I learned early on that I shouldn’t make a habit of snacking on the fat-filled food. Instead, my parents encouraged me to incorporate more fruit into my diet. My dad and I began preparing fresh fruit smoothies during the summertime, and I began to slice strawberries instead of scooping ice cream.

As a long-time fruit fan, I only wish I had come into contact with creative recipes like this one much sooner.

These homemade kiwi-watermelon popsicles would have been the perfect alternative to fat-saturated desserts like ice cream and summer cakes. Not only are these pops delicious and refreshing, but they have no unhealthy additives — only natural sugars and nutrients! Who knew eating healthy could be so tasty, too?

To learn how to make a batch of these sweet treats, check out the ingredients and step-by-step directions below. Then, watch the video for extra preparation tips. Even if you are the biggest ice cream fanatic in the world, prepare to be instantly converted to a popsicle lover — just like me!
