I had to get rid of some watermelon the other day but I felt that watermelon pop in itself would be kind of weird…because the watermelon I had was definitely past its prime (starting to get sandy and gross).  So I mixed in some frozen berries I already had, this time blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries.  And the result was actually pretty good.  You could still taste the watermelony part of the watermelon and the past priminess was muted by the berries.  I’ll probably do this again even with watermelon not past its prime.

I would say that I had about 0.75c of berries and 2.5c of watermelon, cubed.  I realize that I really should have just weighed the fruit, because fruit does not conform well to volumetric measurements.  But I was lazy and didn’t want to wash a bunch of dishes.  Threw it all in the blender with maybe 0.25c of sugar, probably a bit less, and a couple tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to brighten the flavors, and puréed until smooth.  Made about 2c of fruit purée.

I have since found out that each complete fish pop mold (6 shapes in all) holds about 1c of liquid.  So this recipe filled both of my molds and I had like a tsp of extra, which I just ate on its own.  As I say, you should taste it before it freezes.
