Who doesn’t love watermelon? I so look forward to my first bite of watermelon every year and can’t wait to see that nice big bin full of them in the grocery store. If I could buy them by the bin full I definitely would! Unfortunately, my kitchen barely has room for two people to stand in, let alone a giant bin full of watermelon!!
Watermelon is full of nutrition! Each slice packs a vitamin punch of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin B6. It also contains the highest concentrations of lycopene – more than any other fresh fruit or vegetable! And if that’s not enough, it also hydrates and is low in fat.
I’m not the only one in the house obsessed with watermelon; Riley goes bananas for watermelon! Kiko and Millie like it as well, but Riley gets very excited when I bring the watermelon out.
Since Thursday is Independence Day, I decided to make some frozen watermelon in star molds to celebrate the holiday! Simply mash some watermelon, pour into molds and freeze. Super easy! You can eat them as is or place one or two in a glass of cold water to give your water a subtle kick of flavor. If you’re having guests over, they will love this!
