Today's featured flavors: Mango & Watermelon/Lime
Mango- one bottle of mango nectar… that’s it! (if you live near a Wegman's, their Organic Mango Nectar is perfect.)
Watermelon/Lime- puree chunks of seedless watermelon with the juice of one lime and a dash of maple syrup in a blender. Skim off any excess foam.
- Pour liquid into a shallow, rectangular cake pan. Use a different pan for each flavor
- Place in freezer.
- Scrape the tines of a fork through the mixture approximately every 30 minutes to keep the newly forming ice crystals loose. This is the secret to the fluffy, light texture of these simple little ices.
- Continue scraping regularly until all liquid is completely frozen. The time will vary, but should take approximately 4 hours.
Adorn each serving with pretty little toppers such as:
- edible flowers
- thin slices of fresh citrus
- sprigs of mint
- tiny paper parasols
Frosty Nectars can be eaten without utensils if served in paper cones. Perfect for a crowd in the backyard! Doilies (lined with a little wax paper) look especially lovely. See previous post for complete instructions.
