How to make the watermelon popsicles-
Add the watermelon and Rooh Afza in the blender and blend it thoroughly. I used my Blendtec and used the smoothie setting.
After blending, add the drained basil seeds and mix them thoroughly.
Now add this blended juice into the popsicle molds and freeze until solid. I usually freeze it overnight.
Before serving, run the popsicle mold through running water or immerse it in a glass filled with water for 30 seconds or so and gently remove the popsicles from the mold. Enjoy!
I usually don't sieve my watermelon juice. We love it as is. But you can run the juice through a sieve and filter it and then add the basil seeds.
Make sure you remove the seeds before blending. Also, if you are watermelon is not sweet enough, then add sugar. If you are using Rooh Afza, keep in mind that it has sugar already.
Instead of Rooh Afza, you can add rose syrup or nannari syrup or honey and lemon/lime juice combination.
Adjust the watermelon and Rooh Afza measure according to your preference.
Basil seeds are optional. You can skip it or use chia seeds instead of basil seeds.
