Watermelon Ice
Share |

There are many varieties of watermelon with the rind varying from green to yellow to white. The flesh color also varies from red to pink and orange. Watermelons are a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A (beta carotene). Additionally, red watermelons have the phytonutrient, lycopene, which protects against prostate cancer.



Servings: 4


2 Tbsp. water

1 Tbsp. unflavored gelatin

4 cups cubed, seedless watermelon

2 Tbsp. lime juice

2 Tbsp. honey

Directions: Pour water into a small, microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over the water and allow it to soften for 2 minutes. Microwave on High for 40 seconds and stir. Let stand again for 2 more minutes, and stir until smooth. Blend one cup of watermelon, lime juice, and honey. Blend in melted gelatin. Add watermelon one cup at a time and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into an 8x8 inch square dish. Place into the freezer and freeze until almost firm. Transfer to a chilled bowl and beat with an electric mixer until fluffy and bright pink. Scoop into serving dishes and return to the freezer. Freeze until firm. Remove from the freezer 10-20 minutes before serving.
