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!
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
