Frozen Watermelon and Coconut Water Ice Cubes are unbelievably refreshing, naturally hydrating and an easy, fun summer treat for kids. All-natural and no added sugar!
Use silicone ice cube trays with fun shapes. You can also pour the watermelon juice into popsicle holders.
- 3 cups watermelon, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1/2 cup coconut water
- Supplies: Silicone ice cube trays, in any shape (see notes below)
- Blitz watermelon in the blender until it turns into a very smooth juice (takes less than a minute)
- Stir in coconut water
- Pour into silicone ice cubes trays and freeze for several hours
- If the watermelon has black seeds, you'll need to blend slowly to avoid chopping up the seeds.
- It isn't necessary to strain the juice, unless you need to strain out seeds (use a fine mesh strainer)
- For easier pouring into the ice cube trays, use a container with a small spout (like a glass measuring cup)
- Coconut water is optional, but adds natural electrolytes. You don't taste it when frozen.
Silicone Ice Cube Trays: It's surprisingly fun to make ice cubes in all different shapes. Small shapes are really fun and easy for kids to eat. My kids love this sea shell tray. The shells are the perfect size. Shapes that are really small (gummy bears) or have lots of sides (like stars) are harder to get out of the trays.
