RECIPE: SWEET WATERMELON ICE

June 18th, 2010 by The Watermelon Guy

Looking for the perfect way to cool down this summer? Of course you are. So am I. Which is what led me to this cool recipe (as if watermelon wasn’t cool enough). This sweet watermelon ice is pretty easy to make, which, if you know me by now, is a priority for me in the kitchen. Seriously, it’s harder to make coffee than it is to make this drink, so you have no excuse not to try it.

SWEET WATERMELON ICE

INGREDIENTS

• 3 cups fresh watermelon juice
• 3 tablespoons sugar
• 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

DIRECTIONS:

Pour the watermelon juice into a shallow glass baking dish. Add the sugar and lemon juice and stir well. Place the dish in the freezer and chill.

Remove the pan every 1/2 hour and stir. The juice will form light, grainy ice crystals as it freezes. Repeat this process until the juice is fully frozen, about 4 hours, depending on the temperature of your freezer. You can also use an ice cream machine, following the manufacturer’s directions.

Serve immediately, or store in the freezer in a covered container up to several weeks.
