  • 1/8 whole fresh watermelon
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tsp sugar, or honey



Cut the flesh from watermelon rind and remove the seeds.

Blend the flesh until its liquid (you should have approximately 4 cups of liquid). Stir in the lemon juice and sugar.

Pour into 150ml paper cups, leaving space at the top so they don't overflow. Stick a wooden popstick into each cup. Freeze for several hours.

To eat, just peel off paper cup. Yum!



  • Try experimenting with different types of melon for different taste sensations, or even do a half watermelon mix with other fruits you have leftover. Watermelon and pear taste great together, or even try adding a few handfuls of berries.
