Jazz up your summer drink with ice cubes – made of watermelon with this Watermelon Ice.
This is one of those things that I seriously said “duh” out loud to when I saw it. I was catching up on my dvr’d episodes of the Rachael Ray Show, and saw her make these, and knew immediately that I needed to try this one out. I am usually really good about drinking water, but something with this pregnancy – it has been a struggle for me. I’ve tried sweetening it with drink sweeteners (like Crystal Light) but then it is too sweet. I thought this would be the perfect way to perk up my water without adding lots of calories. And it was! It added just a hint of sweetness, and I got to eat the watermelon when I was done with my water!
Now, I’ve seen lots of fruit infused ice – with cucumber, fruit, or even herbs. But it seriously doesn’t get any easier than this. No ice cube trays to fill up, no pureeing anything. Just chop and freeze!!
I tried these with both seltzer water and regular water, and I actually preferred the regular water. (But that’s probably because I normally prefer regular water.) But I also think they would be great in a lemon-lime soda or even lemonade. I can see this being the perfect “ice” for summer entertaining!!
And the bonus is that I discovered that frozen watermelon is really delicious. I couldn’t stop just stealing frozen chunks from the freezer!
