DIY Watermelon "Ice"


Now THIS is my kind of DIY: One that is simple enough that it doesn't require a full set of instructions, yet is impossible to mess up. Plus, It's just perfect for Summer, and we all know how I feel about that
It's basically a lazy girl's version of fancy fruit infused ice, but better because you can EAT THE FREAKIN' ICE AND IT'S DAMN DELICIOUS. Honestly, it doesn’t get any easier than this, just chop, freeze and serve. No ice cube trays to fill up, no pureeing, no crying because you suck at anything DIY.. It's a win-win.


These cubes work in so many different drinks. They absorb the flavour of whatever they're floating in - my favourite combination is frozen watermelon and lemonade. The watermelon at the end has that sweet lemonade zing and I can't even. They also go great with Vodka mixes, fruit juices, and it adds a refreshing hint of sweetness to water, too without adding masses of calories.


Or, you could just eat the frozen cubes on a hot day - you're not going to be disappointed either way. I promise.
