PINE-MELON-ICE-BLOCKS-1

 

There is no better time for an ice-block than summer-time in Australia. However, store bought ice-blocks are usually high in added sugar and quite often contain colours and flavours. So, why not have a go at making your own, then you’ll know exactly what’s in them!

As the temperature rises, so does the availability of locally produced tropical fruit at pocket friendly prices. These Pine-Melon Ice-blocks are super refreshing and delicious. They are also extremely hydrating and full of vitamins and minerals, in particular vitamin C. Unlike purely juiced based ice-blocks, these beauties are made using the entire fruit so are packed full of fibre. Kids, and adults are going to love these as a snack by the pool, after sport or an easy dessert. Keep them in your freezer this summer and you will always have a cool and refreshing snack on hand!
