Mouthwatering Watermelon Bars



These creamy, refreshing bars are just the thing to serve on a hot summer day. Made with watermelon, lemon juice and milk, they're designed to keep their cool. Use leftover watermelon to create this summery light and sweet treat.

Ingredients

12 oz round vanilla wafers
6 tbsp butter, unsalted
5 cups watermelon juice (see chef’s note)
½ tsp lemon zest
½ cup fresh lemon juice
½ cup sugar
½ cup 2% milk
1 oz unflavored gelatin*
¼ cup confectioners’ sugar or 1 cup whipped cream, for garnish (not included in nutritional analysis)

*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.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 13-by-9-inch baking pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on the long sides of the pan. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the melted butter into the finely ground vanilla wafers and add 2 Tablespoons of water. Mix well and press the crumbs onto the bottom of the prepared pan, forming a crust. Bake the crust for 20 minutes and allow to cool.
  3. Set aside 2 cups of the watermelon juice in a small bowl. In a large bowl, combine the remaining 3 cups of watermelon juice with the lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar and milk.
  4. Sprinkle the gelatin over the reserved 2 cups of watermelon juice. Allow to sit for 2 minutes so that gelatin can dissolve and begin to absorb liquid, or "bloom." After the gelatin blooms, heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes on high, or heat gently in a small pot over low heat on the stove top, until the gelatin has completely melted into the juice and the liquid is smooth.
