Paletas Heladas de Sandía (Watermelon Ice Lollies)

I remember when I was a child my mum used to make “Hielitos” which were like a sort of ice lollies but instead of being lollies with a stick, my mum used to used a little plastic bag, this is a very common way to make ice lollies in Mexico, I used to love them, but I remember that my mum used to use cool-aid, a sort of flavour powder, my watermelon lollies are much nicer and healthier, so, sorry mum! 

Makes 6 small ice lollies


  • Half a watermelon cut in chunks and deseeded
  • 1 tbsp Organic Agave Syrup or more if you have a sweet tooth

You need:

Ice lollies cases


Put the watermelon with the Agave syrup in a blender or in a jar and blend with a hand blender. Pour into the lollies cases and freeze until they are frozen. 

To take them out of their cases, just pass them through some hot water and they will come out with no problem.
