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 😉 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! 😉

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! 😉
