These ice-blocks are something a little different for summer. They look so ‘cool’ and are sure to suit majority of dietary requirements. Packed with wholesome ingredients, there is no need to worry about additives, preservatives and sugar which are usually plentiful in store bought ice-blocks.

Also, papaya is a wonderful fruit and definitely underrated, it is packed with nutritional benefits. Like most tropical fruit, it is of abundance in summer cheap to buy! To name a few health benefits, papaya is particularly high in vitamin C and betacarotene, the pre-cursor to Vitamin A that is found in plants. Papaya is also loaded with antioxidants that can reduce inflammation through out the body, as well as containing an enzyme called ‘papain’, which can help support digestive function.

Feel free to make adjustments to these ice-blocks, adding other tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango to the papaya layer works very well!
