in this hot, hot weather, we’ve been enjoying slicing up watermelon and keeping it in the fridge for a quick cool snack.
last week, as i was doing this, i set aside a little bit of watermelon to make another flavour of icy pole.
the addition of mint made these fruity ices particularly refreshing during the heatwave!
