Rose and Watermelon Popsicles
A perfect little treat for princesses … and the princes will love them too – even if they are pink!
Recipe contains: –
- 300 grams (10 ½ oz) seedless watermelon, chopped
- ½ teaspoon organic rose water
- 400 ml (13 ½ fl oz) organic coconut cream
- 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder or organic pure vanilla extract
Purée the watermelon in a blender until smooth and fluffy. Add the rose water to the purée and pulse to mix.
Fill 6–8 popsicle moulds to the halfway mark with the watermelon and rose purée, and place them in the freezer for 1 ½–2 hours or until frozen.
To make the coconut layer, place the coconut cream, honey or maple syrup and vanilla powder in a bowl and mix well. When the watermelon layer is frozen, fill the rest of the popsicles with the coconut mixture.
Insert the sticks into the popsicles and return to the freezer for 6–8 hours.
Honey is recommended for 12+ months only.
If you can find them, add a small handful of edible rose petals to the watermelon and rose pureé before freezing. Another option is to add little pieces of mint. 5–6 small leaves broken up will be a perfect addition.
You can use the leftover watermelon pulp to flavour a smoothie.
