Watermelon Ice Lolly Recipe

In summer, Mila’s afternoon juice is freshly juiced watermelon. But I never have enough fridge space to store a large watermelon and it tends to go off before we can juice it all. Solution? Make watermelon ice lollies!

 

Watermelon Ice Lollies are refreshing and re-hydrating with loads of Vitamin C – perfect after along day on the beach, after exercise or to offer to your little one if she/he has a fever.

Make it a Superfood Lolly!

 

By adding some Camu Camu Powder and Baobab powder, you can significantly increase the vitamin C content. I tend to add a tablespoon of each.

Alternatively, add 2 tablespoons of this Berry C superfood mix from Soaring Free Superfoods

Mila's Meals Watermelon Ice Lollies

Yes, you can eat the seeds and rind of the watermelon (be sure to wash the watermelon thoroughly before you cut it though).

 

As I write in the 156-Ingredient Glossary of my book:

[blockquote text=”“The watermelon seeds contain magnesium, iron, zinc, protein, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and fibre while the rind is a good source of chlorophyll.”” show_quote_icon=”yes” line_height=”25″]

According to Dr. Mercola,

[blockquote text=”“the rind contains plenty of health-promoting and blood-building chlorophyll, and more of the amino acid citrulline than the pink flesh. Citrulline is converted to arginine in your kidneys, and not only is this amino acid important for heart health and maintaining your immune system, but it has been researched to have potential therapeutic value in over 100 health conditions.”” show_quote_icon=”yes” line_height=”25″]
