Cool Treat: Watermelon Ice

One of my favorite summer recipes is for Watermelon Ice. This frozen treat is really refreshing on a hot day!

Watermelon Ice

1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. watermelon Jell-o mix (less than the small box)
3/4 c. boiling water
5 c. seeded, cubed watermelon that has been pureed in a blender

Combine sugar, Jell-o mix, and boiling water. Stir to dissolve.
Add watermelong, and pour into a 9x13 pan.
Free overnight.

This is actually done best as a double-batch. You just need a larger pan or two 9x13 pans.

My son is gonna flip over this! He is allergic to ice cream so we are always looking for neat treats to make in the summer for him.
