Popsicles are widely consumed in Cameroon although we call it Alaska (not sure why we called it that way) probably because it is a frozen treat…anyway no idea. Every pupil craves this frozen colourful, flavored goodie.I remember back in the days, if you had 100FCFA for instance to spend during lunch break, all you needed was to get some fish rolls and some Alaska.
Two weeks ago, I thought it was time to start some fall cleaning and getting out my winter jackets, but then the summer is not over yet! We are enjoying 31 degrees, still a good period to make use of my popsicles molds. The kids are so ready for this treat..
Now this is how to get it done; it is as easy as 1-2-3…(except for my little toddler who begins counting with 2..)
What goes in
½ kg watermelon
½ cup of sugar (completely optional, I do without the sugar because the watermelons are sweet enough but if you have a caramel tooth, go for extra sugar!)
How to bring these two into perfect harmony
Cut the watermelons and seed
Put in a blender(The kids and I love doing this together)
Blend, add in the sugar and just pulse.
Pour into your popsicle molds
Close and freeze for 6-8 hours or overnight
Enjoy this healthy goodie in warm weather!
