​Not Your Average Watermelon Ice Cream

If you enjoy watermelon, and you love ice cream, this watermelon ice cream hits two birds with one stone!

But what’s even better about this recipe is not just the ease of making it.

It’s super nutritious because it contains fresh and healthy ingredients that your body will absolutely love.

For instance, watermelon is already nutritious as it is because it is packed with minerals, electrolytes and water to keep you hydrated and nourished.

But we are also adding in some yogurt to this recipe, which we all know is loaded with probiotics to keep your gut healthy and thriving.

Another ingredient to this recipe are Chia seeds, which not only resembles the seeds of the watermelon (just a little smaller, I know) but it is also full of great nutrients such as essential fatty acids, protein, fiber, and numerous vitamins and minerals.

Other things I would like to add to this watermelon ice cream are some chopped nuts and coconuts, which are full of
healing fats that are good for your heart, nerves and brain.

Now, where can you find an ice cream as healthy as this one at the store? That's a good question, but if you make it yourself, you can be confident that it's good! And I’ll teach you just how it’s done in this watermelon ice cream recipe!

It’s a great treat to serve to your kids as an after-school snack, maybe a dessert, or a fun treat to cool off after playing for hours in the yard or at the pool.
