It was super hot the last few weeks here in Melbourne… so I was giving all the ice cream recipes a bit of a whirl…

This one was quite a hit – I am not actually a watermelon fan myself but the rest of the family loves it and this is a pretty yum way to get some hydration happening and feels like the perfect summer treat.  I reckon there are still a few scorchers ahead so give this a whirl with your littlies…

WHAT YOU NEED:

1kg watermelon

1/4 cup caster sugar

Juice of a lime

(this makes enough for a whole family who have invited a few kids over for a play 🙂 )

WHAT TO DO

Cut watermelon into small chunks

Freeze in zip lock bags for about 2 hours

Blend the watermelon in a food processor until smooth

Add sugar and lime and blend again

Transfer to a container and freeze abour 3 hours

Scrape into bowls (this makes it granita like with ‘crystals) and serve.

Yummy!
