Watermelon Creamsicles!

Alright Wayward Girls, here's my project:
(visit Flann's post for a recap of the Wayward Girls' craft challenge.)

Watermelon Creamsicles

Watermelon = Summer
Summer in D.C. = hot, humid & sticky

So, what do we need?!
Something cool, crisp & refreshing...

like Watermelon Creamsicles!

Everyone should try this...even those who are craft and cooking-challenged.  
It is so easy AND it took me no more than 5 minutes!

What you need:

3 different colors/flavors of ice cream or yogurt (I chose strawberry, vanilla & mint chocolate chip)
Popsicle molds (I got mine at Target!)






Instructions:

First, leave the ice cream/yogurt out for several minutes.  This makes it easier to mold the ice cream.  Start with your red/pink color and put that in first.  I used a baby spoon and a teaspoon to do this since the mold was pretty thin.  And FYI, you need to work quickly because once the ice cream melts into a liquid, it is hard to keep the colors separated. :)


Try to smush the ice cream in so that there aren't any gaps or air pockets.  
Then, follow with the vanilla layer and then the green layer.  




Once you are done, use a small spatula to smooth out the green layer and then (gently!) put the handles in!  Freeze until you are ready to enjoy...



Enjoy!





Next up?  Tomorrow Court will surprise us with her watermelon-inspired project.
Thank you Wayward Girls for the fun challenge!
