Woman's Weekly recipe Our easy melon ice lollies are a real family favourite. With just four ingredients and 15 minutes prep time, these healthy melon ice lollies couldn't be simpler to make. The only sweetener in these is a little pressed apple juice - perfect if you're trying to cut down on sugar - but they taste so good that the kids will still think they're a treat! This recipe makes 8 ice lollies, perfect if the kids have friends over from school and you're looking for an after school treat they can all enjoy.

Ingredients

  • About 500g watermelon flesh (1/4 of a watermelon), cut into chunks no need to deseed it
  • About 300g honeydew melon flesh (from 1/2 a melon, deseeded), cut into chunks
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 100ml pressed apple juice

Ice lolly moulds vary in capacity. If you have any mixture left over, use plastic cups as moulds.

Method

  1. Put the watermelon in a blender and whizz until smooth. Strain into a jug, then pour onto 8 lolly moulds to come about a third of the way up the moulds. Freeze for about 1 hour or until almost frozen solide.
  2. Rinse out the blender and add the honeydew melon with the lime juice and apple juice and whizz to a purée.
  3. Push the mixture through a sieve and pour into the lolly moulds, inserting a stick in the middle, and freeze until solid. Pour in remaining watermelon juice to fill the moulds, then freeze. Use within 3 months.
  4. When you want to eat the lollies, take the moulds out of the freezer and dip them in hot water for 10-20 secs to release the lollies.
