Healthy Watermelon Ice Blocks – the perfect nutritious Summer treat
Summer has well and truly hit Australia! So, what better way to celebrate the warm balmy nights ahead of us, than to create some seriously delicious and healthy super green watermelon ice blocks!
These healthy watermelon ice blocks are perfect for those fussy eaters (kids or adults) who simply refuse to eat their greens. I for one, have an extremely fussy father in-law who is old school, and avidly avoids my cooking when he knows he will be staying the night. To put things in perspective, the “weird green stuff” never gets eaten and my dogs are always left to help hide the evidence of his inability to devour nutritious food.
So, I am always on the hunt for ways to disguise healthy food. Enter, my healthy watermelon ice blocks – father in law approved!
My secret weapon? No it isn’t blending kale until you can’t taste it, and no it isn’t going to the supermarket and spending hundreds of dollars on ingredients.
Using just a few ingredients, each ice block has over 18 servings of vegetables and your fussy eaters will not be the wiser.
I have used Nature’s Way SuperFoods Greens + and Greens + Wild Reds which are packed full of antioxidants and nutrient dense superfoods. Perfect for those busy bodies who want those essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids, in one hit.
