A nice and easy summer drink that is cool and refreshing. Its great for cooling off in the intense heat.

After everything is well blended pour the mixture into a baking pan and then cover with plastic wrap.
Then put in the freezer to freeze.

Step 8: Scrape the Watermelon Ice

Use a fork to scrape the watermelon to lighten the texture then put in a small glass. Then add more water to fill the glass or Sprite or some sort of alcohol, whatever you prefer. Then stir it a little.
Finish with a little slice of watermelon with the rind (watermelon skin) still attached.

Enjoy!

nllommertnl made it! (author)2015-07-12

nom nom nom gonna try to make it with strawberrys

nllommertnl (author)2015-07-11

can you also boil up 1/3 of a cup of water in a water boiler and then desolve the sugar in to so you dont need to use a pan?

nllommertnl (author)nllommertnl2015-07-12

if you boil some water throw it in a glass with the sugar and stir it it won't dissolve all the way but if you throw it in the microwave and stir every 30 seconds it will dissolve

lnblecht (author)2013-10-06

Where did you get the idea to make the syrup? could you use grenadine instead? Do you think it would work with another type of fruit such as peaches?

Blechmen (author)lnblecht2013-10-08

Try it and tell me how it works out

mollymoo2000 (author)2013-08-16

This is the best frozen fruit drink i have ever had thank you so much

Blechmen (author)mollymoo20002013-08-16

I'm so glad you like it

tleet59 (author)2013-07-23

Do you suppose you could substitute vodka for the water to make it an adult drink?

Blechmen (author)tleet592013-07-24

Of course but my suggestion would be to fill halfway with the watermelon ice then half with the vodka and wait a little for the ice to melt and then drink.

Might be easier to use an ice-cream machine? Will have to try that when summer is here again. Sounds dlicious

Blechmen (author)Dumblabrat2013-07-16

I agree with you, hmmm if only I had an ice cream machine.... Imagine the possibilities, lol I'll show you what I can do with one if I win the Frozen Treats contest, so be sure to vote.

Only took 5min of my time to make this, perfect!

Blechmen (author)Medcin2013-07-14

I'm so glad it turned out well, I still have some in my freezer to make into the drink. And a vote would be very much appreciated.

juliefv (author)2013-07-11

Winter in South Africa now but definitely a recipe for very hot African summers. Will think of you in January :)

Blechmen (author)juliefv2013-07-12

I'm looking forward to hearing from you

kokosalexa (author)2013-07-12

Blechmen (author)dogloverlaura2013-07-11

Thank you so much

nomnomnom.

Brightfield Farm (author)2013-07-11

I am SO going to suggest this to the brides we have to replace their little signature cocktails. THIS is great, pretty, and hey, surprisingly easy and could very well be on their "activity"list for guests. Watermelon stand down the road? CHECK! Honkin big fridge to store them and keep them chilled? CHECK! Blender, etc? Check! Wonderful recipe? CHECK!!!! thanks!

Haha thanks so much, I feel so honored, tell me if this works out and how it was, and I don`t usually do these types of Instructables so a vote is much appreciated and I will do more of these. thanks

hotstuff5721 (author)2013-07-09

Looks yum!

Blechmen (author)hotstuff57212013-07-10

Thanks and a vote is always appreciated, and tell me if you end up making it and how it was.

caitlinsdad (author)2013-07-09

I freeze my watermelon cubes in a ziploc bag. Lay it flat in the freezer. You can then get frozen chunks to use in the bullet blender. Take a meat mallet to hit the bag so the cubes break apart if needed. Fill the rest of the cup with liquid like lemonade or fruit drink. Blend to get a watermelon slushie. I almost burned out my bullet blender when I did frozen strawberries without chunking them up first and kept on running it to blend all the little chunks it missed.

Blechmen (author)caitlinsdad2013-07-10

Thats a really good idea thanks for sharing

amonj02 (author)2013-07-10

Looks kinda good to me but I do not like watermelon,
Good job, though!!

Blechmen (author)amonj022013-07-10

Try some other melons and then send me a picture and tell me how it was, I always love to hear from you guys.

xUr Momx (author)2013-07-09

Can't u just omit the sugar?
Isn't it sweet enough? Will it not set up without it??

Blechmen (author)xUr Momx2013-07-09

yes you don't need to add the sugar it's only to make it a little sweeter, I'm sure it will taste just as good without it. And its pretty sweet without the sugar.

ninjanody (author)2013-07-09

I will definitely try it this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

Blechmen (author)ninjanody2013-07-09

Thanks and I would love a vote when I get accepted into the frozen treat contest
