Giant Lemonade-Watermelon “Ice” Cubes


An article in the New York Times sparked this idea- but this was a much simpler take on the refreshing thought of frozen pureed watermelon. My only ice-cube tray has HUGE wells, so I made HUGE lemonade-watermelon ice cubes! We put them in seltzer water and in lemonade. The giant ice cubes took such a long time to melt that they kept the drinks nice and cold. Nice on a hot day. Slushy when melted. πŸ™‚

  • 5 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 cup lemonade Β (simple syrup could also be used)

In a blender, puree the watermelon and lemonade. Freeze until firm. Enjoy in lemonade or seltzer.

  7. So simple but such a great idea! The watermelon I got Friday was gone in 5 seconds. In my defense, it was only a little bigger than a softball. Need to get some more and try this!
