Mouth-​​Watering Watermelon Bars

These creamy bars are just the thing to serve after a meal cooked on the grill. Made with watermelon, lemon juice and milk, they’re served chilled and and are a refreshing summertime treat!

To make watermelon juice, simply place the watermelon cubes in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Strain the mixture with a strainer into a bowl.

Unflavored gelatin is commonly packaged in small envelopes (one or more envelopes to a box). Look for it in the pudding and gelatin section of your grocery store.

Servings: 12


1 box round vanilla wafers (12 oz.), finely ground
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
5 cups watermelon juice (from about 1/2 of a large watermelon)
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (from 1 lemon)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 large lemons)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 small envelopes (1 oz. total) of unflavored gelatin, (see chef’s note)
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar or 1 cup whipped cream, for garnish
