The word “gelato” means ice cream in Italian. While the two frozen desserts have much in common, gelato is lower in fat and typically denser. This recipe has about half the fat and fewer calories than ice cream, yet tastes delicious! Add a few chocolate chips to the mix in the last few minutes while it is churning or just sprinkle some on top, for an extra treat. Try a taste of an Italian summer!

- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Process according to your ice cream maker’s instructions.
LOVE IT!!! Was afraid wouldn’t have much watermelon flavor, but it’s great! And a lovely soft pink color :))). Churning now; should be good scooping consistency after time in regular freezer. THANKS!!!
(I’m in Peru; watermelon available year round 😁)
