Watermelon Ice

A great way to get your children to eat fruit on a hot summer's day … and not ice-creams!


  • 1 watermelon, rind removed

  • handful of mint leaves, finely chopped (optional)


  • 1.

    Cut the watermelon into large slices, removing pips as you go.

  • 2.

    Blend 2/3 of the watermelon in a blender or food processor into a puree.

  • 3.

    Roughly mash the remaining watermelon with the back of a fork.

  • 4.

    Mix together with the mint and place in freezer containers. Place in freezer overnight.

  • 5.

    Before serving, rough up watermelon ice with a fork. Serve in small cups.


Frozen fruit treats, such as frozen banana (spear peeled banana with icy-pole stick and then freeze) or other frozen fruit such as grapes, peeled mango cheeks, peeled orange and mandarin segments, are aslo a great alternative to ice-creams in summer.
