Why You'll Love This Watermelon Dessert

This recipe is perfect for a hot summer day when you want an easy treat that will cool you off!

Watermelon is such a refreshing summer fruit and when it's frozen it's even better.

This recipe is great to serve at a summer BBQ and can easily be doubled or tripled for larger events.

Frozen watermelon chunks, two halved limes, honey, and sea salt.

Ingredients You'll Need

For this recipe, you'll need 4 cups of chopped watermelon. This was about 1 small, seedless watermelon for me. Or ⅓ to ½ of a larger watermelon. You'll want to use a very ripe melon that's juicy for the best flavor.

You'll also need 2 tablespoons of honey (or another sweetener of your choice - like agave or cane sugar), 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lime juice, and 1 teaspoon of sea salt.
