Directions

  1. In a blender, blend watermelon, sugar, lime juice and lime zest until smooth.
  2. Pour into a shallow baking dish and let freeze for 3 hours, scraping the surface with the tines of a fork every 30 minutes to create shaved ice crystals.
  3. Serve in chilled cups or bowls, garnished with lime wedges.

    *Tip: Lime zest (the very outer green part of the lime) is packed with flavor. But avoid the white pith underneath which can be bitter.
