Healthy Watermelon Ice Blocks

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.

Watermelon Ice Blocks


  • Watermelon Layer

  • ½ of a watermelon quarter (scooped out and deseeded)

  • 500ml H2Melon []

  • 60g Nature’s Way Greens + Wild Reds []

  • Coconut Layer

  • 1 can of organic coconut milk

  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup

  • Green Layer

  • 30g Nature’s Way Greens Plus (tropical flavour) []

  • 300ml Coconut Water


    1st layer:

  • In a blender, blitz all of the watermelon layer ingredients. Once blended, fill the ice block moulds until approx. ¾ of the way full.

  • Leave to set in freezer for 2-3 hours.
    2nd layer:

  • In a bowl, stir in ingredients.

  • Pour on top of the watermelon layer, half way of the remaining space.
    3rd layer:

  • In a bowl / or blender, mix the ingredients together. Taste, and if too strong, dilute with coconut water.

  • Pour on top of the coconut layer and leave to set overnight.

Optional: I used cacao nibs for the ‘seeds’ however mine seemed to drop down to the bottom! I would suggest leave your watermelon layer to set for 30 mins, then drop them in.

    Hey Sinead!
    You could use coconut water, or blend up more watermelon and strain

So I don't know if I should be thanking you or annoyed at you! My kids now are OBSESSED with me making the watermelon iceblocks like you do! If i just put in watermelon and no greens they become fussy because it isn't like the first batch I made! hahaha - but thank you I think is in order as my toddlers LOVE this healthy snack - better than zooperdoopers!
