Melon Splices

Makes a lot Prep Time 10 minutes   Rated:


We love collaborating with brands for our Insider Club offers, so joining forces with Conscious Candles was an interesting challenge as far as food was concerned. But we did it. They have a lovely Scents of Summer range, and so a Melon Splice (as per one of their fragrances) was easy to duplicate into food. I remember eating splices as a girl. In Australia they are a frozen treat, with icecream in the centre of a fruit flavoured icy coating. We didn't go that far, as great as the Alyce Alexandra moulds are, filling the interior of a frozen icy outer with ice cream was a bit extra, so we went with a dual layer of both frozen watermelon and a coconut nice cream. These are completely dairy free, vegan if it comes down to it, low sugar and really very tasty.

If you want a further good reason to make these, watermelon has a high water content, over 90%, which is great for maintaining optimal hydration levels. Packed with vitamins A and C, watermelon also supports immune function and promotes healthy skin. Additionally, watermelon contains antioxidants like lycopene, known for its potential to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body.

Then there is the coconut section...

Coconut cream provides a rich source of healthy fats, including medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which can enhance energy levels and support weight management. Additionally, the lauric acid found in coconut cream may have antibacterial and antiviral properties, contributing to immune system support. SO, icy poles that are good for you and taste amazing and you would be happy to give to the kids. Our work is done here.
