Looking for the perfect treat to refresh your party guests
this weekend? A watermelon ice is a simple, fruity dessert that’ll please every
palate. Toss in a hint of lemonade, and you’ve got yourself a fab party
1 3-lb. piece of watermelon cut in 1-inch cubes (that’s
about 5 cups of watermelon)
¼ cup of sugar
½ cup of frozen lemonade concentrate, defrosted
1. Pick the seeds out of the watermelon cubes and put the
cubes into a blender. Add the sugar and lemonade concentrate. You should spoon
in the concentrate straight from the can instead of adding water to make the
lemonade as directed.
2. Blend until smooth. If the watermelon gets jammed, shut
off the machine and use a spoon to loosen it.
3. Pour into an 8- or 9-inch square baking pan. Make room in
the freezer so it won’t spill, and carefully place the pan on a flat surface.
Freeze for one hour.
4. Remove the pan and stir the ice with a whisk. Place it
back in the freezer for another hour. Remove and whisk. Put in freezer for
another hour or so, then remove and whisk it again. If it’s still mushy, freeze
5. You can use a melon baller to scoop little spheres of
watermelon ice for your friends, or pour it into pretty glasses and eat away.
