Icy Summertime PERFECTION, in a sweet, frozen, healthy treat.
Skip the snow-cone shacks this Summer, and make your own healthier, ice cold treat!
Simple prep, and you don’t even need an ice cream maker!
Made up of over 90 percent water, watermelon is one of the most hydrating foods available to us. Thank goodness it’s peak watermelon season during these HOT Summer months! Mother Nature definitely knows what she’s doing.
Besides being full of water, watermelons are also a surprisingly nutrient-dense food. They provide high levels of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants all within just a small number of calories.
Watermelons are actually relatively low in sugar compared to other fruits. A one-cup serving of diced watermelon has just nine grams of natural sugar. That’s less than what you’d get from my favorite fruit; apples (11 grams).
- 1 small seedless watermelon, peeled and cubed
- 1/3 cup raw honey, or pure maple syrup
- 1 fresh lime, juice & zest
- fresh mint leaves and lime wedges, to garnish
