Watermelon is a perfect summer fruit, it is super hydrating, containing over 90 percent water.  watermelon is also an excellent source of lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant which plays a role in cancer prevention and cardiovascular health. Cucumbers add quite a nutrition punch to these popsicles, like watermelon, cucumbers are super hydrating, contain insoluble fiber and have anti-inflammatory properties for cardiovascular prevention, anti-aging and neurological impairment.
