Recipe Notes

♥   This recipe uses the “speed-set” method of combing ice and cold water to accelerate the setting of the gelatin. If you do not have ice available, use 2 cups of cold water instead of the cold water and ice, and place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 40 minutes to softly set the gelatin before adding the watermelon.
♥   Recipe can also be made with sugar-free strawberry gelatin for a reduced calorie dessert.
