Are you feeling the heat already? Mumbai is getting hot and humid by the day and these frozen watermelon Popsicles is all I want to cool myself down!
Speaking of things which help you cool down, you must try my home-made Thandai recipe which has ingredients like fennel seeds, poppy seeds and melon seeds with natural cooling properties. Also Mocha Banana shake is cold, insanely chocolatey and banana in it provides instant energy and keeps you full for long time.
Coming back to this popsicle, do you often eat watermelon with kala namak? How yummy know! Well these popsicles are even better - iced cold, spicy, minty with right notes of sweet and sour. Such a treat in summers!
This popsicle is best eaten when you are thirsty and tired and want something refreshing and energising. Since it doesn't have any added sugar, its also great as a dessert. You can even serve these instead of welcome drinks to your guests.I am sure they are going to love it in this heat.
Kids love popsicles and they are going to absolutely flip after tasting these. Fruit popsicles is an amazing way of increasing fruit intake of kids.
While I love watermelon and I have used it before in other recipes too like Watermelon Gazpacho, Watermelon and tomato salad with basil vinaigrette and Watermelon Jalapeneo Lemonade, this watermelon popsicle is my new favourite way of eating watermelon.
They are so yummy that you won't be able stop at just one!
