Watermelon pineapple ice lollies recipe

Watermelon pineapple ice lollies recipe

or Popsicle or freezer pops, are the hottest frozen treats in summers. Not only the kids, but the grown ups love it as much.And these are so very easy to make , in hundreds of exotic flavours and are easy to stack at home for weeks , that you really don’t need to add  ‘ ’ to your grocery lists, or wait for the ice cream van to buy these.

Making ice lollies at home, is also a great way to actively involve kids in some creative activities. They will love making ice creams at home. Whipping up all the colourful fruits and ,and waiting for the liquid puree to freeze magically in the fridge is quite enticing and exciting for the kids.Though waiting for the ice creams to freeze in the freezer, is not something that the kids would want to do!!!That is the only thing my daughter hates!! WAITING for the ice cream to freeze or for the cake to bake.But I’m sure this waiting will help her learn the value of patience 🙂

Getting back to the topic, there are number of ways you can mix and match a number of flavourful fruits, and ingredients to make some awesome beautiful ice lollies.

This time I tried making two coloured ice lollies in pineapple and watermelon flavours and my little one just loved these. The best thing about making ice lollies at home is that you can make the ice lolly healthy by adding, fresh fruit juice, or blended fresh fruit, and  the sweetener of your choice.Also you can make variations by adding , fruit slices, some herbs, and of course there are infinite moulds available to make your lollies look different and more pretty every time.

For the watermelon pineapple ice lollies, you need but of course.. fresh watermelon, and fresh pineapple, a dash of lime juice, and sweetener of your choice.I used sugar this time, but you can use honey, maple syrup, or any other sweetener of your choice.

Making the first layer-

To make the first layer,whisk the watermelon with a little sugar /honey and a 2-3 drops of lemon juice as per your taste. Put it in moulds, so that the moulds are half full, and freeze for 3-4 hours.I wanted to have a diagonal pattern in the lollies, so I kept the moulds at diagonally, in a bread loaf tin,in the freezer. Something like this.If you want a straight pattern, you can keep them straight in the freezer.

Now that the watermelon lolly is ready, whisk some pineapple in a blender, add sugar/honey and a few drops of lemon. Now pour this mix on top of frozen watermelon lollies.

Once frozen, take these out of the freezer, and keep at room temperature for a minute.

These will easily slide out of the moulds.

Voila…. Your healthy ice lollies are ready to be served.
