Watermelon Popsicle Bouquet

Refreshing Watermelon Pops will keep you cool on a summer day. Simply puree watermelon in a blender. Strain using a medium sieve. If the melon is sweet enough for your taste then pour into a popsicle mold, add a few mint leaves and pop in the freezer for a few hours. If they are not as sweet as you like, then sweeten with agave, honey or a mint-infused simple syrup.

For simple syrup bring 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a boil until the sugar dissolves. For the mint infusion place a half bunch of mint into the hot syrup, cover the pan, turn off the heat and let steep for 30 minutes.
