Watermelon Fruit Popsicles

I'm always on the lookout for healthy alternatives to sweets, so I was pretty excited when I came across this recipe for homemade watermelon fruit popsicles.
I mean, how good do these look?  If you're anything like me and absolutely LOVE watermelon, then you have to give these a try.  They're the perfect treat for a hot day, and best of all, they're made with 100% fresh fruit.  Delicious, refreshing and healthy!
 1/2 small - medium seedless watermelon cut into chunks (makes 4 popsicles)
handful of strawberries, diced
handful of blueberries, sliced in half
1 peach, kiwi and/or nectarine sliced very thin

put watermelon chunks into blender and puree until smooth
fill bottom half of popsicle molds with cut up fruit
pour pureed watermelon into molds
tap molds on counter top a few times to ensure the puree reaches the bottom of molds
insert popsicle stick 
freeze for 6 - 8 hours or overnight
to remove popsicle from mold - simply run under warm water for 15 - 20 seconds
