Can’t celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day without cookies…
Watermelon Fruit Popsicle Recipe
It’s a great day when National Watermelon Day falls during the absolute hottest and most humid week in California…
so we decided to celebrate with watermelon fruit pops!
We love watermelon and think it is the perfect summer treat, just try the Watermelon-Mint Detox.
3 cups seedless watermelon
½ cup chopped strawberries
1 peach diced small
* Kept the recipes simple based on the ingredients I actually had on hand.
However, feel free to add other fruits you may like.
½ cup blueberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
Handful of cherries, pitted and chopped
For people with Gastroparesis, proper nutrition is the main focus of treatment as some foods are more difficult than others for the stomach to digest.
Some foods to avoid
Normal Gastric Function vs. Gastroparesis
1. Place watermelon, lemon and lime into pitcher (avoid bitterness by peeling lemon & lime).
Lightly muddle watermelon, lemon, and lime. Crush mint leaves by lightly rubbing your hands together, then place in the pitcher.
2. Add 2 liters of still water.
If you prefer a sparkling detox water, add 1 liter of sparkling water and allow to infuse and then add the rest of the sparkling water when ready to serve.
3. After adding still water or 1 liter of sparkling water, place pitcher in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow the fruit and mint to infuse the water.
4. Take the pitcher out of the fridge, stir the ingredients well.
Optional: If you wish you can strain the detox water and discard (or eat!) the solids.
5. Add Colon Cleanse and drink immediately
6. Garnish with fresh watermelon, lemon and mint then serve.
