Watermelon is now at peak of the season and makes perfect sense to use it for making ice pops or paletas. In Mexico, we love paletas. We make them using fresh fruits in season resulting in a wonderful treat to enjoy by the kids and the grown ups too. Watch the video and get the scoop!

Did you know that August 3rd is National Watermelon Day?

We love this celebration so much because watermelons are sweet and are present in all our summer fun activities and grilling parties. Watermelons are mostly water but have nutritional properties with significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids.

Watermelon is perfect to eat alone, with a pinch of salt or chamoy. In salads, for making smoothies and agua fresca. And even grilled for savory applications. Cucumbers and watermelons are related as both are part of the cucurbitaceae family. Both are the perfect pair when combined in chopped salads, with cheese, for fruit and veggie skewers and appetizers.
