The best thing since ice cream.
How amazing does that watermelon ice cream look?!
But shh.. here’s the secret…there’s actually no ice cream in it…it just looks, tastes, and satisfies you like ice cream. Without the brain freeze or empty calories.
My gorgeous watermelon “ice cream”, is simply chilled scoops of watermelon. And I must say, it’s pretty genius, not sure why no one has thought of this before. 🙂
As I’m sure you’re well aware, the mind is a funny thing. It will believe anything you tell it. Scoop some melon into balls, cover it with creamy and crunchy toppings, and all of a sudden it thinks it’s having ice cream and those same little pleasure sensors light up as they do when you indulge in something more decadent.
So grab a spoon, this may be your new favorite way to eat watermelon.
