Is watermelon good for you?

Watermelon is low in calories and high in water, but it’s also great for your health!

It contains Vitamins C and A which are good for your hair and skin. As well as Potassium, Magnesium and Vitamins B1, B5 and B6. And it has Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant with numerous health benefits.

So it’s not just a refreshing fruit with high water content but a healthy little snack to enjoy too!

Can you freeze watermelon?

Watermelon can be frozen so that you can enjoy it for longer so these watermelon balls can last in the freezer.

Make your watermelon kebabs by scooping out balls of the watermelon. Remove any seeds, thread them onto sticks. They can be stored in an air tight container for up to 3 months.

Ingredients:

  • 1 small watermelon
  • 100 grams coconut flakes
  • Drizzle honey (optional)

Equipment

  • Wooden skewers
  • Melon baller

 

Instructions

  1. Cut your watermelon in half.
  2. Take a melon baller and carefully scoop out 15 watermelon balls. We have allowed 5 balls per watermelon kebab. If you want to make more then just adjust accordingly.
  3. Take 5 watermelon balls and thread them onto one of your wooden skewers. Place them in a tray or storage container, so they’re ready to go in the freezer. Repeat for your remaining skewers.
  4. Add a little drizzle of honey over the watermelon kebabs.
  5. Sprinkle them with coconut flakes until the watermelon balls are coated.
  6. Freeze them for several hours or overnight.
  7. When you’re ready for your snack take them out a few minutes beforehand so that they thaw a little and enjoy!

Notes:

We recommend giving these to children over 3 years of age only. For younger children the balls can be halved or quartered to make them safer and easier to eat.

The watermelon balls can be quite hard when they come out of the freezer so give them a few minutes to de-thaw before serving.
