Watermelon Sweet Tea Popsicles

watermelon sweet tea popsicles

I love taking hot trends and putting my fun twist on them like with these watermelon sweet tea popsicles.  As many of you know, this blog is dedicated to my grandmother so she drives a lot of inspiration for the majority of my recipes.  The food I grew up on was soul food or “southern cuisine”, which is the more widely used term.

To me and to most, no soul food meal is ever complete without a glass of sweet tea.  But as it gets hotter and hotter this summer, I find myself gravitating towards frozen desserts that leave me refreshed and cooled off.  That feeling led me to combine sweet tea and popsicles into watermelon sweet tea popsicles, which everyone loves during the summer.

I added a bit of seasonal watermelon and created the perfect summer treat.  I think my grandmother and the South would be proud.
