Frozen Watermelon Skewers
Anyone who's read my (Emily, here!) recipes before knows that I love ones that throw together quickly, are nutritious, and above all make me want to do a happy dance. This recipe does it all. It also couldn't be easier to make. These are perfect for hot hot hot days or times when you want a sweet treat but don't feel like putting in the effort to build a sundae.
Why do we love watermelon? First, it's 92% water? What?! Yes. Talk about hydration station. The rest of it is packed with significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants, amino acids, and some potassium for good measure. And you thought watermelon was just fruit. (Psst it's okay, I did too before this post!) Read on for the recipe!
Ingredients & Instructions
+ cubed watermelon // between 1-2 inch cubes or rectangles like mine ;) + skewers // any kind or length works
note: I purposely left the amounts above blank, because it really depends on how much watermelon you have :) -- I used five skewers with a little over a quarter watermelon
Take your cubed watermelon and slide it onto your chosen skewers, filling it up with as many as you'd like. Lay them flat on a baking tray or plate, and pop them into the freezer. Leave them in there for about 4 hours - depending on the temperature of your freezer - or overnight. Once they are at your desired level of frozen, take 'em out and enjoy!
