Watermelon contains more lycopene than many of the other fresh fruit or vegetables – between 15 to 20 milligrams per two cups of melon! Lycopene is the rosy red colour of the melon. It is related to a lower risk of cancer, particularly prostate cancer. Watermelon is a rich source of vitamin A and C, a great source of vitamin B6, and, of course, contains water for hydration. What better way than putting them into popsicles? Popsicles are the ones that are reminisced by everyone. Unfortunately, many of the store-bought popsicles contain some extra sugar, chemical flavourings, and colour. We don’t want to give this to our children or consume ourselves. Making your popsicles helps you to take control of what’s going on in them. These watermelon popsicles are made of watermelon and kiwi only. You should be pleased to know that you’re bringing your little ones a sweet and tasty treat filled with goodness.
Later, add the watermelon pieces to the blender or food processor and blend until pureed.
Leave enough room to add the kiwi puree and around ½ cm / ¼ inch of extra space at the top because the popsicles expand when they freeze.
Meanwhile, let’s get the kiwi puree ready.
Once the watermelon puree turns solid, top it off with the kiwi puree.
Run the moulds under warm or tap water for around 10-15 seconds. Remove each popsicle from the mould carefully and gently. If the popsicle still doesn’t slide out easily, run them under warm water for more than 10 seconds.
