    Servings and Ingredients

    Ingredients
    Serves 6
    QuantityIngredientAdd
    8 c. cubed seedless watermelon, divided
    1 c. water, divided
    ¼ c. lime juice
    ¼ c. light agave nectar
    3 c. Hy-Vee lemon-lime soda
    Watermelon slices, for garnish

    Things To Grab

    • Blender or food processor
    • Fine-mesh strainer
    • 2-to-3-quart freezer container
    • Large fork
    • 6 (12-oz. each) glasses

    Directions

    1. Puree half the watermelon and half the water in a blender or a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a 2- to 3-quart freezer container. Repeat with remaining watermelon and water. Stir in lime juice and agave nectar. Cover and freeze at least 8 hours.
    2. Two hours before serving, remove from freezer and set out at room temperature.
    3. To serve, use a large fork to scrape partially thawed mixture into shaved ice. Spoon about 1 cup shaved watermelon ice into each of six 12-ounce glasses, filling each about 2/3 full. Slowly pour 1/2 cup soda into each glass, stirring to mix. If desired, garnish with watermelon slices.
