Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 C Watermelon Juice See instructions below
  • FOR THE CRUST:
  • We used pre-made graham cracker pie shell crusts like these but you could always make your own from graham crackers and vegan margarine. Or vanilla wafers and margarine. You could also buy a full size pre-made pie shell. Just be sure they are vegan.
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 1/8 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1/8 C Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 C Sugar See note below in the instructions
  • 1/8 C vegan Creamer I use the So Delicious brand
  • 2 tsp Agar Agar Powder (you can get this at any health food grocer or on Amazon.com here
  • Coconut Whipped Cream
  • Mint for garnish if desired

Instructions

  • Remove the rind from enough watermelon slices to make 1-1/4 C once strained. Puree the watermelon in the food processor. You have to strain it to remove the pulp. We only want the juice for this recipe.
  • Place 1/2 of the juice into a small saucepan. Add the agar powder and whisk together. Then, over medium heat and whisking occasionally, cook for about 5 minutes to thicken. Cool slightly.
  • In the remaining watermelon juice, add the lemon zest and juice along with the sugar. You could add less sugar, it's important to taste to see how sweet your watermelon is. Add the creamer and whisk all ingredients together.
  • Combine the cooked watermelon juice with the remaining ingredients. Pour the mixture into a glass measuring cup for easier pouring.
  • Pour into prepared shells and freeze for 2 hours and transfer to the refrigerator until serving. Alternately, you could could just refrigerate for 4 hours. These should not be frozen, just firm.
  • Serve with our coconut whipped cream and a sprig of mint.
