Mmm, what’s better than a cool, refreshing and fruity dessert? One that costs next to nothing to make! Get the watermelon on sale and whip up a batch of this.
(This recipe is part of The $7 Dinner Challenge.)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3 lbs watermelon, cut into chunks
juice from 1 lime
Make simple syrup: Heat the sugar and water together on high heat until sugar dissolves into the water. Remove from heat and let cool.
Combine watermelon and lime in a blender and whirl until smooth. Alternatively, use an immersion blender and blend the mixture smooth in a large bowl. Add the simple syrup and lime juice and blend again.
Pour the mixture into a 9 by 13 baking pan and freeze. Scrape with a fork every half an hour until all the liquid has frozen. This takes from 1-3 hours.
Spoon into glasses and serve.
