medium ripe watermelon, divided (approximately 1l when juiced)

185 g


185 ml


30 ml

lime juice



Step by step

  1. 1 day before: Peel and cut your watermelon into smaller pieces, reserving a few chunks for garnish. Using a juicer, juice your watermelon pieces until you have enough juice to fill up to the fill line in 4 molds. This should be 500 ml of watermelon juice, approximately half the watermelon. Freeze 12 to 24 hours.

  2. 1 day before: Juice the rest of the watermelon (approximately 500 ml) and put it into a bowl. In a small pot, heat water and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Cool your sugar syrup slightly and add it to your bowl of watermelon juice. Add salt and lime. Stir to dissolve salt. Strain and store in the refrigerator until very cold.

  3. 1 day before: In a medium saucepan, combine coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until thickened. About 10 minutes. Set the saucepan over a bowl of ice to cool the mixture, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes. Add lime zest.

  4. 1 day before: In a stand mixer with whisk attachment, beat heavy cream on high until stiff peaks form, 2 minutes. Gently fold whipped cream into coconut lime milk mixture. Pour into a freezer-friendly dish. Freeze for 6 hours or overnight.

  5. Day of: Take out your frozen lime ice cream and let it sit out for approximately 15 to 20 minutes to soften. Drop 1 large scoop or spoonful into each serving dish. This does not need tempering. Shave your watermelon ice over the ice cream. Drizzle with watermelon syrup and top off with crushed or chopped fresh watermelon and lime zest.
