Watermelon and lime are a match made in heaven in this frozen Italian treat. It’s vibrant and fun to eat making it perfect for kids and adults. The added bonus is the healing properties of the watermelon that makes up the base of this recipe.
“Melons: A powerful liver cleansing food because of melon’s ability to hydrate blood all on its own and help alleviate your liver’s overburdened state. The combination of melon’s unique living water content with its nutrient content allows the heart to work less; melons thin out dirty, toxic, fat-filled blood, allowing the heart to not overwork itself in pumping blood. This reduces some of the liver’s responsibility to protect the heart, which frees up the liver to focus on other important chemical functions that are needed in the moment. Melons also provide the liver with hydration to hold on to for when you’re in a drought, living a lifestyle of chronic dehydration. They flush toxins out of the intestinal tract with ease and rebuild hydrochloric acid reserves in the stomach. And because bile is not needed to break down and digest melon, the liver can work on restoring its bile tank.” – excerpt from Liver Rescue.
Add the watermelon, lime juice, lime zest and maple syrup/honey to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a shallow glass or ceramic pan. Freeze for at least 2 hours, then start breaking up the ice crystals with a fork every 30 minutes until you get a crunchy, slushy-like texture.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer until needed.
