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. 🙂
- 5 cups cubed watermelon
- 1 cup lemonade (simple syrup could also be used)
In a blender, puree the watermelon and lemonade. Freeze until firm. Enjoy in lemonade or seltzer.
