Watermelon Ice Lollies

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 ūüėČ 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…

You’ll need:

  • 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! ūüėČ

I have to say that my favourite is always, always the dinosaur! ūüôā

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! ūüôā

PS: Please note that the blog

will be closed for the month of July.

But, don’t worry, I’ll be back! ūüėČ
