We’ve – hooray, hooray – got a heatwave approaching Denmark this weekend! Which means it’s already hotting up and I’ve (stone the crows) been able to wear my sandals and summery skirts several days in a row. Which means we’ve been down at the local beach and swimming in the Danish sea (current water temperature 15.5c or 60f). Which means icecream every day. Which means I bought a watermelon 😉 And one of the best ways to enjoy it (and, let’s face it, get it used up because these things are humungous), is making these Watermelon Ice Lollies…
- a watermelon (obviously)
- a good, sharp knife
- cocktail or lolly sticks
- cookie cutters
Slice the melon fairly thin – if you make it too thick, the cookie cutters won’t go all the way through. Don’t ask me how I know this…
Cut out shapes using cookie cutters and pop in a cocktail or lolly stick
If some of them don’t work out, just gobble them up immediately. No guilt and no waste! 😉
I have to say that my favourite is always, always the dinosaur! 🙂
Pop in the freezer for a couple of hours and enjoy. If you’re serving adults, you might want to soak them in some vodka first…
Have a marvelous melon-y Monday! 🙂
PS: Please note that the blog
will be closed for the month of July.
But, don’t worry, I’ll be back! 😉

Brilliant, thanks for sharing I am making these tomorrow night with my two!
A vodkasaurus sounds wonderful!
My favorite part was the separate instructions for adults. ;^)
You are SO COOL. I want to come live with you. Abigail would so benefit if you started a Mommy camp! I'd be a way cooler mom.
I feel bad for her. I do.
Diane, I know you like Star Trek, so check out my blog. I'm not a fan of the singer, but I do love what's been done. And it features Spock *sigh*
p.s. Sorry for the multiple posts this morning. Not enough coffee.
Glad you all enjoyed this post! 😀 DD8 was absolutely delighted with them and had a few for breakfast… I guess that's two thumbs up then?!
Those are fantastic! We eat lots of watermelon here in GA and I've never thought of making lollies. That's a MUST for 4th of July festivities! 🙂
