Watermelon Nice Cream

Ever since I was a little girl, August has been my favorite month of the year. For one thing, it is my birthday month! 🙂 I adore spending that late summer time with my family and friends, combined with all of those late summer flavors and activities and that sleepy haze that often fills the August sky. 

It’s also no secret that I LOVE all the summer fruits and veggies. By the time we get to August around here, watermelon season is in full bloom! Sweet, juicy, and hydrating, watermelon is one of my favorite seasonal fruits. High in vitamin A, B6, C, magnesium and potassium, watermelon also has the ability to help lower blood pressure. Watermelon is a surprisingly healthy fruit! 

When something is this delicious and healthy, I guarantee that I am going to create new ways to enjoy it!! And this one is especially good because it will keep for up to 6 weeks (just make sure to keep it frozen in a sealed container!). With a little freezer magic we get to prolong the joy of watermelon long after the summer haze has faded. And this recipe couldn’t be easier – it’s made with only 3 ingredients!!! 

Here’s to a fabulous end of summer!
