Who doesn't love watermelon? Not only is it delicious, but it's low in calories, packed with vitamin C, and may even help relieve muscle soreness. Since Sunday is National Watermelon Day, we wanted to share this refreshing watermelon Popsicle recipe.

Actress, ZICO Coconut Water spokeswoman, and former Health cover star Jessica Alba recently hosted a cooking class in New York City with Casa Mono chef Andy Nusser to demonstrate how to cook with coconut water. One of the courses was this delicious four-ingredient ice pop, which creates a pretty ombré effect as it freezes. It will give your taste buds a mini tropical vacation. Enjoy!
