Fruit Ice Lollies are such a delicious, healthy alternative for the Summer. You can make an assortment like I have done here, or make one for a fun snack. I've used an ice lolly cutter for these, but you can cut them by hand too. Just cut a rectangle and then trim off the top with a small glass.

What you need

Instructions

From top left to top right:

Watermelon and Cantaloupe Lolly:

1. Cut slices of watermelon and cantaloupe. Try to ensure they are the same thickness. 

2. Use the ice lolly cutter to cut the top piece of watermelon, as well as the bottom piece of cantaloupe. You may need to trim the midsection straight so they fit together.

3. Stick them onto a lolly stick.

Kiwi, Mango and Watermelon Lolly:

1. Slice the fruit in somewhat equal pieces.

2. Use the rectangular cutter to trim three equal rectangles.

3. Stack them on top of each other and secure with an ice lolly.

Galia / Watermelon and Chocolate Lolly:

1. Melt the dark chocolate. 

2. Use the ice lolly cutter to cut the melon and insert the lolly stick.

3. Dry the melon with kitchen towel to ensure that the dark chocolate will stick.

4. While holding onto the stick, dip the tip of the melon into the chocolate. Lay it on baking parchment and allow it to set.

5. For the watermelon and dark chocolate version, dip the watermelon into the chocolate twice, and use a toothpick to scallop the chocolate a bit.

Notes

If you have any leftover fruit, save all the odd-shaped bits in a freezer bag for your next smoothie, or chop it up and make a mini fruit salad.
