Chili Lime Watermelon Pops // The Year in Food

Guys. Hi! I can’t believe that the official start of summer is this weekend. I’m heading to the woods on a backpacking trip – where it’ll be hot and summery and full of bears and unbelievable views. Lots of bears + no electricity means no popsicles for me this weekend. I can hang with a little short-term sacrifice. These things are so good. They’re vibrant and spicy and a little tart and kinda puckery. They’re more savory, and the heat from the chile probably wouldn’t go over well with most five year olds. But I bet that they would go over well with the big kid set. Happy Summer! Hope you make the most of it.
