Watermelon is the quintessential treat for summer. We love that it's nearly calorie free, hydrates better than any soda or juice drink, and make us all feel like kids when we eat it. Watermelon isn't just for seed spitting contests. These recipes will show you how to make kid friendly ice pops, and grown up friendly boozy drinks alike. You are going to be thanking us all season long. Watermelon season is here!

If you want to make a show stopping, cool and fruity treat for kids or adults, try this recipe for watermelon popsicles. They have a cool layer of frozen jello on either side of the secret creamy layer. Hidden inside are the seeds (secret because they are actually chocolate chips!)
Enjoy these watermelon martini's after the kids have gone to bed. They are made just for the grownups! Leave out the booze and replace with your choice of fruit juice if you are sharing with the underage set. This just might change the way you think about that evening cocktail. Delish!
We may have saved the best for last. How about a cool, refreshing watermelon drink, with the tingly finish of a spicy jalapeno visitor. We want to drink these all up right now! Try adding a bit of fresh herbs to the mix. There are suggestions directly on the recipe page. So tasty, and incredibly different. Enjoy!
