Watermelon Orange Popsicles

For the perfect, refreshing treat for a hot summer day, what could be better than watermelon? How about a watermelon popsicle?! This delightful blend of watermelon and orange juice is sure to please, so make a double batch to have lots on hand!

Notes

Watermelon has many nutritional benefits, including being a good source of lycopene, beta carotene, and citrulline. 


According to a recent study done by Bhimanagouda S. Patil, PhD of Texas A&M University, the citrulline in watermelon may have Viagra-like effects on the body.  Dr. Patil has found that this particular nutrient relaxes blood vessels, which is similar to what Viagra does.
