Watermelon Italian Ice

Ashley Dawkins


I had gotten this recipe off of the Hallmark channel for lemon flavored.
I had lots of watermelon, so I changed the juices and added the salt.
So refreshing and summery!!

It's perfect if you're "Around the House" cleaning, and when you're done...you've got a great treat!!

How to Make Watermelon Italian Ice


  1. I get my watermelon juice by scraping chunks of watermelon through a colander. Set the colander over a measuring cup and mash it.
  2. In a freezer safe pan, combine the 1 cup of watermelon juice and 3/4 cup of simple syrup.
  3. Place this in the freezer and scrape it with a fork every half hour until it becomes light and flakey. (About 3 hours.)
  4. Puree the frozen mix with the cup of ice cold water and salt.
  5. Place the blended mix in disposable cups or soufflés and let them have a good freeze, at least another 3-4 hours. Enjoy!!
  6. NOTE:
    It's best to let the Italian ice sit out for about 10-15 minutes before eating. Makes it easier to scoop into your mouth!!
