Watermelon Ice Lollies

Artisanal food is a term that we hear a lot, and now it has been extended to popsicles (fruit ices). On hot days, especially at the beach or around the pool, there is nothing better. Artisanal popsicles are homemade ices combining fruit and herbs, like mint with watermelon or strawberry, basil with peach or mango, lemon thyme with grape, orange or pineapple, and dill with kiwi fruit. By using fresh fruit and natural sweeteners (honey) children can enjoy sweet treats without refined sugar.

What you need:

2½ cups of diced watermelon
1 tablespoon of mint leaves
1½ cups coconut water
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon honey

To make Minty Watermelon Popsicles:

Blend diced watermelon, mint leaves, coconut water, lime juice and honey. Pour the mix into ice-lolly moulds (available from Yuppiechef) and insert the popsicle sticks (keep in place with a piece of tape). Freeze for at least six hours or overnight.
