Watermelon Bowl

Watermelon Bowl

Watermelon does double duty: the pureed juice replaces water in the gelatin and the empty shell becomes a bowl for this refreshing dessert.



  1. Cut 1/2-inch-thick slice from rounded bottom of watermelon half to prevent it from rolling around. Scoop watermelon pulp into large bowl; reserve shell. Blend pulp, in batches, in blender until smooth; pour each batch of juice into separate large bowl. (You should have about 7 cups juice.)
  2. Pour 2 cups juice into saucepan; bring to boil. Remove from heat.
  3. Add dry gelatin mixes; stir for 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  4. Add to remaining juice in large bowl; mix well.
  5. Refrigerate for 45 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 15 minutes.
  6. Pour into watermelon shell. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.
  7. When gelatin is firm, cut away any watermelon rind that extends above the gelatin layer.
