I’ve actually been having a pretty tough day skin-wise. It’s been irritating me all day. I think I may be taking issue with bananas. Oh no! Or…it might just be my hormone levels at this time of my cycle. Anyway, I decided I needed a bit of a treat, so I pulled out one of my nectarine and watermelon ice blocks and had a little indulge-sesh.
I always have my cravings for ice creams, ice blocks and just all around sweet stuff! With the diet, I need to get creative. Then again, how creative can ice blocks get? Well, I tried! Instead of using regular ol’ water or sparkling water, I used some sparkling honey water! YUP! I wasn’t so sure when I smelt the bottle, but then I took a swig because The Mr. insisted it tasted incredible. Well, don’t tell him, but he was right!
Fascinating! Chopping up fruit! I usually take some “before” photos of what everything looks like, but this is more of a “during” photo because I forgot about them! I was too eager to make and get these in the fridge!
After you chop up all your fruit into little pieces pop them into moulds. I alternated between the watermelon and nectarine pieces. I also actually used slightly under-ripe nectarine to give the ice block a little tartness to it, so it wouldn’t be too sweet. And that’s the delicious honey sparkling water I used!
And that’s what she looks like! Ooooooohh she was tasty with the extra honey!
Not really sure why you would need a recipe for this, but here you go!
- 1 cup diced Watermelon
- 1 diced nectarine
- fresco sparkling honey
- Cut up the watermelon and nectarine into small pieces
- Add them to the moulds alternating between watermelon and nectarine
- Fill with sparkling honey
- Place in freezer to set for at least 2 hours
