What a fun and unique summer treat! As soon as I saw this on Ommy Noms, I knew I’d be making it. It’s really difficult to top sitting in the back yard with your family and a big ol’ slice of watermelon on a summer night, but this fro yo might just come pretty darn close. It’s slight, refreshing, and perfectly sweet for a summer dessert. If you’re looking for a fun twist on watermelon, give this a try!
Watermelon Frozen Yogurt
slightly adapted from Ommy Noms
2 c. seedless watermelon chunks
1 c. Greek yogurt or 1 1/2 c. regular yogurt, strained
about 1/4 c. sugar (adjusted to taste)
1 TBSP lime juice
1 TBSP light rum or vodka
1. Puree watermelon chunks in a blender or food processor. Strain out the grainy pulp and discard.
2. Return watermelon juice to the blender. Add the yogurt, lime juice, and rum or vodka, and blend until well-combined. Add sugar a little at a time. Taste and adjust as necessary.
3. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s directions. Enjoy as soft yogurt immediately or place in a freezer-safe container to achieve a hard freeze. Keeps up to two weeks.
