Super cooling and hydrating on a hot summer’s day these are fruity ice lollies that the whole family can enjoy together. Suitable for babies as young as 6 months and cooling on little sore gums.
I created this recipe to help the thousands of people who tend to urinary tract infections or kidney stones as watermelon pulp has been traditionally used to support and protect kidney health and has been found to have the ability to clear cloud infected urine. Watermelon pulp has also been used to help hypertension, diabetes and diarrhoea.
Coconut water is also protective of the kidneys and liver and maybe used to help hydrate children with mild diarrhoea. It is rich in mineral contents (sodium, potassium, phosphorus, chloride, magnesium), vitamins, natural sugars, amino acids and antioxidants.
- 3 slices Watermelon (seeds & skin removed)
- 100 g Cucumber (peeled)
- 150 ml Coconut Water
- 225 g Raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2 tsp Maple Syrup (optional and not for under 12 months)
- Slice the watermelon and cucumber into large chunks and whizz up in a blender with the coconut water and two thirds of the raspberries for 20 seconds until well combined.
- Pour gently into your ice lolly moulds, filling them up to about ½ cm from the top.
- Chop up the rest of the raspberries roughly and pop them into the ice lolly moulds, pushing them down with the ice lolly sticks so they are evenly scattered through the mixture.
- Freeze for three hours and then devour. Can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
