It’s hot out there, people, which is why both recipes featured here on What About Watermelon this month will be ice cold and refreshing. Let me repeat – ice cold and refreshing. As if watermelon isn’t refreshing enough, right?



  • 3 cups pureed watermelon
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice


In blender, process chunks of seeded watermelon until liquefied. In large shallow pan, stir all ingredients together until sugar is dissolved; place pan in freezer. Stir watermelon mixture every 20 minutes until frozen, about 2 hours. Cover; store in freezer. To serve, break mixture up with fork.

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.



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


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.
