If you’re anything like me, a soon as the sun comes out and get us all hot and bothered all you an think about is some cold a refreshing watermelon….. Either that or you hear the ring-a-ling of the ice cream van and run out for your favourite ’99, Feast or Fab….
Here in London we don’t get much sun but when we do, we like to go all out. Barbecues planned as soon as there aren’t any clouds on our weather app, ice cream in the freezer at the ready and those freeze at home ice lollies for the kids where everyone just ends up with a blue mouth and tongue.
Why not quench your thirst and that craving for a sugary ice lolly with something natural? ‘But what?’ I hear you ask…. Take a look below….
Frozen Watermelon Lollies
These have to be the easiest ice lolly ‘make at home’ alternative treats to make ever! Simply slice your watermelon into your desired shape, pop on a skewer or lolly stick and leave in the freezer for a couple of hours. It really couldn’t be any easier.
Sure, fruit has it’s own naturally occurring sugars but it’s far better for you than a sugary ice lolly and atleast with Watermelon you know exactly what you’re eating. It isn’t a bad habit to get yourself into!
I’m not saying never eat a Fab or a Cornetto, but if you love an evening ice cream/lolly after dinner in the summer, maybe substitute it for Frozen Watermelon here and there and get one of your five a day at the same time! It kind of has a sorbet-y texture to it.
Give it a go it’s so delicious!
