Feeling the summer heat this month?

We’ve included the best summer treats great for the whole family!

To make your own icy watermelon mint popsicles, you’ll want to have fresh seedless watermelon on hand, along with fresh mint, salt, a little sugar, popsicle sticks, and a container for freezing the pops. As for containers, note that a variety of regular kitchen items will do the trick, so you don’t have to buy a special kit: muffin tins, Dixie cups, tall parfait glasses or ice cube trays. And really, it doesn’t matter what the popsicles look like, as long as they taste good and cool you down during the summer’s warm months!

Watermelon Mint Popsicle Recipe

Ingredients:
5 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1 tbsp. fresh mint leaves, chopped
1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice (about ½ lime)
optional: 1 tbsp. raw honey

  1. Add the cubed watermelon to the blender, followed by chopped fresh mint and lime juice. (If your watermelon isn’t too sweet or you just want to add a little extra sweetness, you could add a tablespoon of raw honey as well, but it’s optional.)
  2. Blend until well pureed.
  3. To remove the bits of watermelon and mint leaves, press the blended mixture through fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth. This will leave you with a smooth, watermelon liquid mixture.
  4. Pour the liquid into the popsicle molds and freeze for an hour in order to solidify enough to add popsicle sticks, then freeze another 3-5 hours to set.

Simply made with fresh organic pineapple, sugar, water, and a squeeze of lemon, this bright and sweet sorbet can be easily made with the help of a handy food processor or blender, and as long as the sorbet gets a good chill time in the freezer, no ice cream maker is required. Serving your cool treat in the actual pineapple is a wonderful presentation.

Pineapple Sorbet

Ingredients
½ Pineapple (about 2 cups)
4 to 8 Tablespoons of Sugar (the more ripe your pineapple is, the less sugar you will need)
½ Cup of Water
small squeeze of fresh lemon slice (optional)

·  Cut up ½ fresh Pineapple into cubes and place in a quality food processor or blender. Add the sugar, lemon juice, water and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into a covered freezer safe container and freeze for at least 1-2 hours.

·  Remove the mixture from the freezer. At this point if you have an ice cream maker begin using it now and follow manufacturers instructions.

·  Don’t worry, if you don’t have an ice cream maker then pour the Pineapple Sorbet back into blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Once that is done, spoon the sorbet into the final container you wish to freeze it in. Put back into freezer for 5 hours.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
