Make this in a spare moment on the weekend, then serve later in the week for a no-fuss dessert.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
4 cups cubed seedless watermelon
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 5 limes)
Lime wedges (optional)
How to Make It
Place sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Place sugar mixture in a small bowl; cool 10 minutes. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes.
Place sugar mixture, watermelon, and juice in a blender; process until smooth. Pour watermelon mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish; cover and freeze 3 hours. Stir well. Cover and freeze at least 2 hours or overnight. Remove mixture from freezer, and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Scrape the entire mixture with a fork until fluffy. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

This was delicious, and extremely easy! I had lots of watermelon and limes in the kitchen, and this was a perfect summertime treat. I followed the directions exactly, but I think we will probably get 8 servings from ours. Highly recommended--we will definitely make this again.
