They're visually appealing, but I don't actually like my fruits mixed like that.

They look yummy! I think they would taste even better with coconut milk instead of juice.

It's so easy!

Take a watermelon and remove seeds.

Cut into pieces and puree it

Put in Popsicle molds

Let freeze a few hours and done!
