Popsicles are the perfect summer treat. Try out a new flavor combination with this recipe for blackberry watermelon popsicles!

Popsicles were one of my favorite summer treats growing up. Second to ice cream, obviously. From what I remember, my mom kept it simple and usually filled up the mold with store-bought juice. Nothing wrong with that.

I, however, decided to take use of the awesome summer fruit in season. I went for a new combo: blackberries and watermelon. This experiment was very successful if I do say so myself. The deep berry flavor combines nicely with the bright, fruity watermelon. Can you really describe a fruit as fruity? You know what I’m trying to say, right? It’s a good combination. Trust me.

The blackberries and watermelon also create the most beautiful color in these popsicles. That purple is gorgeous, right? I also love the speckles of sliced blackberries peaking from under the surface. They’re a nice, little juicy surprise.
