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!

melon, mint and apple icy poles


9 tbsp finely cubed watermelon
6 tsp finely chopped mint leaves (we used native mint, but any variety will do)
apple juice to top up


  • place 1.5 tbsp of watermelon pieces, and one tsp of mint leaves into the bottom of each icy pole mould.
  • top up with apple juice
  • freeze overnight
