Good morning. Summer is coming and I thought it’s time to put out summer recipes. Having MS, by eating something cold, it helps keep my body from overheating. I also am a big fan of frozen grapes in the summer. Just put the grapes in the freezer and enjoy. The middle becomes like an ice or slushy. This recipe below is simple, quick and refreshing. I got this recipe from Forks Over Knives.
Watermelon Basil Ice
6 cups fresh watermelon
½ cup fresh basil
1 tbsp lemon juice
Place the watermelon, basil, and lemon juice in a blender. Process just until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a shallow airtight freezer container. For best results, freeze for 3 to 4 hours until the texture is frozen yet scoopable. Use a metal ice cream scoop to portion into serving dishes.
Freeze any leftovers. To serve again, thaw at room temperature for about 10 minutes before scooping.
