Watermelon lollies

Watermelon Lollies
Ice lolly are everyones favorite (specially children's). I usually make fruit juice  lollies and cubes to get relief from summer heat.  I still remember the childhood days, when we used to run out to get those colorful ice lollies from ice-cream vendor, coming to our door step every evening.
