Lime-Honeydew-Ginger Ice Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Lime-Honeydew-Ginger Ice which belongs to the Sweets recipe category.
- 1 package (4-serving size) sugar-free lime gelatin
- 2 cups (480 ml) boiling water
- 2 cups (310 g) honeydew melon, cubed
- 1 tablespoons (9 g) grated
- ginger Juice and grated rind of 1 lime
Assuming that you have a blender that can deal with boiling water, put the gelatin and the boiling water in your blender and whirl until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
If your blender won't take the heat, whisk the water and the gelatin together in a bowl instead until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
Let it cool to a temperature your blender can take before you do the next step.
If you've used a bowl to dissolve your gelatin, pour it into the blender now, turn it on, and add the honeydew, a few chunks at a time.
When the honeydew is all pureed, add the ginger and lime juice, let it whirl another couple of seconds, and then turn off the blender.
Put the blender container in the fridge and chill until it's starting to thicken up.
Pour it into an ice cream freezer and follow the directions until the mixture is frozen; then serve.
Or you can do this in traditional granita form, which is to freeze it in a shallow pan and scrape it with a fork every 20 to 30 minutes as it freezes to separate the crystals.
You can just pour this into dessert cups and let it chill as a gelatin dessert instead, if you prefer.
Each serving will have 4 grams of carb, a trace of fiber, and a trace of protein.
