The final recipe for 4th of July 2020…you ready for this? Refreshing, summer flavor filled no churn watermelon lime ice cream!
Nothing says summer like watermelon and citrus! And what better way to enjoy them than puree them up into a delicious, easy peezy ice cream?
In case you aren’t aware, I’m legit obsessed with no churn ice cream. Whip up the base in just 15 minutes and then just freeze 4 hours for soft serve or overnight for standard ice cream yumminess. That’s it!
For the no churn watermelon lime ice cream flavor, I used a little lime zest, lime juice, and pureed watermelon cubes. Add this combo to some heavy whipping cream, condensed milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk whisk whisk, freeze, and that’s all there is to it. A refreshing, frozen summer treat that you don’t have to work for!
