We've been watermelon eatin' fools so far this summer! Alas, the watermelon I purchased this week was a bummer. It wasn't very sweet or juicy and really just too flavorless to eat plain. I've been finding a few different ways to use it up anyways though (Might I recommend watermelon margaritas? Yum!)

However, I can't always be drinking tequila, so I decided to try out a soft serve type ice cream. Well, at first I was going to make a sorbet, but then I remembered I had a can of coconut milk. This was so delicious, I ate way, way too much of it (but, since it was dairy free I didn't get a tummy ache, yay!) Try it!

1 quart chopped, frozen watermelon
1 can full fat coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
Simple syrup to taste (my watermelon wasn't sweet AT ALL, so I probably used 1/4 cup.)

Blend everything in VitaMix, adding more frozen watermelon or a drizzle of almond milk if needed. Eat immediately or freeze in a flat container for 1-2 hours. If you freeze any longer than that, you might want to set a timer to scrape it every half hour or so for the first 3 hours. And then when you go to eat it, let it sit on the counter to soften about 10 minutes. Top with shredded coconut if you like!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
