  • 6 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • tablespoons fresh sweet mint


Preparation Instructions:

1.Puree the watermelon in a blender or food processor. Strain the juice through a wire mesh sieve to separate the pulp and tiny black seeds. I don’t worry about the tiny white seeds that may get through. You will end up with roughly 6 cups of watermelon “water’.
2.Pour into a 13″ x 9″ metal or glass pan and place in the freezer.
3.Let the mixture freeze for about thirty minutes and then scrape with a fork to break up the frozen part around the outer edges creating shards of ice. Repeat every thirty minutes for about 2 to 3 hours or until it’s a completely frozen mass of crushed ice.
4.Serve immediately.

Kirby used half of a large seedless watermelon for this recipe. The half equaled roughly 6 cups, so your watermelon output may vary depending on its size.This is shared by humans and canines so we’ve never had any leftover but you can store it for a day in the refrigerator. Refreeze and scrape or strain the mint and drink it. Freezing at this stage will form a solid block of ice.
