4 cups watermelon, seeds removed
The juice of 1 lime or 2tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup of granulated sugar or icing sugar
Blend the white sugar into a blender until it becomes powdered
Icing sugar is too sweet; therefore I use granulated sugar. I blend the white sugar into a blender until becomes powdered.
Use the seedless melon if you like genetically modified foods, I will stick with "normal" watermelon. I purchase fresh fruits from the fruit vendors at the market. Sliced fresh fruit is becoming increasingly popular in supermarkets in Jamaica.However, the sulphur that is often used to preserve the fruit and make it look appetizing can cause headaches, nausea and asthma. Researchers are seeking alternatives or so they “claimed”.
In a blender or food processor, add the sugar, watermelon flesh, and the lime juice. Mix until smooth. Pour mixture into an airtight container.
Freeze for 2 hours or so
Remove from freezer, use a fork to mash the frozen mixture into shavings. Serve.
