Sweet Treat: Easy Watermelon Ice Cream

foodsweet treats

Is there anything more refreshing than a wedge of cold, juicy watermelon on a hot summer day? How about a scoop of frosty watermelon ice cream? This recipe is an easy treat that will help you beat the heat. It is also a perfect way to use up all the leftover watermelon from those summertime BBQs!

Easy Watermelon Ice Cream

IMG_0259

2 cups pureed watermelon
1 can sweetened condensed milk

  • Puree enough watermelon to yield 2 cups (approximately half of a medium watermelon).
  • Add 1 can sweetened condensed milk to watermelon puree and mix together.
  • To make a batch smaller or larger, just keep a 2:1 ratio of watermelon to sweetened condensed milk.

You can then either pour the mixture into an ice cream maker (like I do because I am impatient) or make freezer ice cream following these steps:

    1. Pour mixture into a large freezer-safe Tupperware and let freeze.
    2. After 1 hour, remove ice cream mixture from freezer and give a good stir.
    3. Freeze overnight or until ice cream is set


When your ice cream is ready, take a spoonful and sandwich between two shortbread cookies or enjoy on its own.

 What is your favorite summer flavor?

    Like you, I am impatient when it comes to homemade ice cream, but it’s so much easier using a popsicle mold than the ice cream maker. I love condense milk and have never thought of using it for ice cream. I’ll have to try it next time. I’m too lazy and basically just cut up the watermelon in large chunks and stick a chopstick in it for a quick popsicle.

  2. Yum! I never thought about making watermelon ice cream, but I think I will be trying it soon. Great job.

    Oh I have never had watermelon flavored ice-cream but I love watermelon, will definitely have to try this!

  4. Yummmy! I really want to try this out… I’m on a watermelon kick lately (which I’m usually not!)
