homemade popsicles

popsicles and chalk 003

I decided last weekend that we needed to make something to cool us off, from this weather we have been having lately.  It has been in the high 70’s, low 80’s this past week.  This may not sound extremely hot to some, but when you live in Santa Barbara the chances of having air conditioning are slim, so it’s hot!  We also had a horrible wildfire (“white fire”), which has burned thousands of acres.  The wind was also strong this week, which didn’t help.  Most of the fire seems to be contained, but please say prayers for the fire to be over, and that anyone affected is safe and sound.  Also, I had the adventure of feeling my first earthquake.  It was the weirdest feeling.  I was standing in a building, when the tiles on the ceiling began to shake, I quickly ran out of the building, confused.  I later learned you’re not suppose to go outside.  Looks like I need to do some catching up on my earthquake safety.  I’m from the Midwest, I know about tornadoes, not earthquakes.  I don’t really need to experience one of those anytime soon again.

On, a lighter note, make these yummy Popsicle’s.  I found my molds at Marshalls, but you can get them anywhere.  The molds I bought are actually the same ones that I have seen at Whole Foods.  Here you go…

1 1/2 cup watermelon

3/4 cup Fage 0% yogurt

pinch of salt

pinch of sugar

Put all of the ingredients into the blender, I use a Blendtec, and blend until smooth.

Pour into the molds and freeze.

So easy, so good.  Enjoy!!!
