Watermelon is the official state vegetable of Oklahoma. Yes, I’m serious. (source) It’s also more or less the official fruit of late summer picnics, pool days, snack times and barbecues.

How can both of these things be true? It’s simple. While watermelon is part of the cucumber and pumpkin family – Cucurbitaceae (Citrullus genus) – it’s also classified as a fruit. It contains more lycopene than a tomato and is completely edible . . . even the rind, which is sometimes pickled, candied or made into gazpacho. (source 1, source 2)

But I’m getting ahead of myself. The most basic fact about watermelons – the one everyone knows – is that the summer season is just not complete without them. In honor of National Watermelon Day, which is coming up next week on August 3rd, I thought I’d share this refreshing recipe for mint-infused watermelon popsicles.

Popsicles don’t get any easier than this, y’all. I hope you love them as much as we do!

(And psst! If you haven’t picked one up yet, here are some helpful tips for choosing a ripe watermelon.)
