Watermelon Shaved Ice

Featuring a wonderfully watermelon flavor, this frozen treat is destined to become a summertime staple! And the best part is it’s only 5 ingredients! Sweetened with sugar water and enhanced with bright hints of lemon, this easy-to-make dessert is simply sublime. Just boil water and sugar together in a saucepan and allow to cool. Then blend the watermelon, lemon juice, lemon zest, and sugar water together in a blender and freeze. As soon as the mixture’s solid, it’s ready to eat. I recommend you pair it with hot sunshine and a refreshing swimming hole, but that’s just me.
