Watermelon Strawberry Ice Cups

Ok, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is, I made some fabulous 4th of July cupcakes and cupcake jars to share with you guys! The bad news is, I didn’t have a chance to upload the photos yet, so I have to wait til tomorrow to share the recipe. I know, bummer! But don’t worry, I still have a great summer recipe to share with you.

Watermelon Strawberry Ice Cups! Sound good, right?? Well they are beyond good –  in fact, they are down right addicting. In Florida it has been around 100 degrees outside so these are the perfect cool down treat. They are really simple to make too. Enjoy the recipe!! Xo

Fruity and Delicious

    I bet they taste fantastic, Summer is a few months away here in Australia, I can assure you I will be trying these out once the weather warms up.

    I also love your previous posts on 4th of July Cuppies, gorgeous vibrant colours, Half my Family is American and we do celebrate the 4th even if we are ‘down under’ 🙂
