The Watermelon Effect
Watermelons are enormous… generally, you would want to use them before leaving them for days in the fridge and monopolizing all that precious space. Making a punch with it is a common solution or maybe next time try these popsicles. The famous pink fruit contains about 90% of water, making it a perfect candidate for the freezer. I’ve left the watermelon rind, for aesthetic reasons, but you could cut it off before freezing the pops. Another suggestion would be to pick up a seedless watermelon for… well… I believe no explanation is necessary here.
Let’s Talk Honey, Honey!
There is a whole world of different flowers out there, different nectars, resulting in different kinds of honey. Some are more popular than others like the multi-flower mix, thyme, rosemary or lavender. Although one of my favourites is the Flor de Azahar, or orange blossom, which is beautifully perfumed and you can feel the orange in there. I’ve used this one for this recipe which I recommend but it’s up to you! I’ve added the drizzle of honey once the pops are frozen, just before serving. It will freeze on the popsicles without making a mess and giving this extra fun texture to the popsicles!
You could use low-fat or vanilla-flavoured yogurt depending on your needs! Also, the choice of nuts could be switched to lovely soft almonds. The main idea here is to use the watermelon as the popsicle, no need of using a food processor or popsicle mould! You can simply freeze the watermelon and put a popsicle stick into it and nothing else! It’s a great way to use watermelon leftovers!
