Watermelon ice

Watermelon ice is a great, cold treat for a kid on a hot, summer day. Throw 5 cups seeded, diced watermelon into the blender. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup flavored gelatin powder of your choosing. Pour 3/4 cup boiling water over the mix and stir until it's dissolved. Then put the mixture in with the watermelon and blend until fully combined. Pour it into a container with a lid and freeze overnight or until solid. You can use a spoon to scrape across the surface to create shavings. Put the shavings in a bowl or snow-cone cup and you're done!
