Petite Watermelons

  • Yield 20 fruit slices servings

If the response you're looking for when you unveil your gelatin is "Ohhhhh, it's so CUTE" this recipe will do it.


1 cup Boiling Water
1 packet Strawberry Flavored Gelatin
1 cup Chopped fresh or frozen and thawed strawberries
1/2 cup Cold Water or Vodka
5 whole Limes, halved, with pulp scooped out and discarded.
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or basil seeds


  • In a bowl, add the boiling water to the gelatin and stir until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Transfer the gelatin to the blender. Add the strawberries and the cold water and blend until liquified. Refrigerate until thickened. Skim off any foam that has risen to the top of the gelatin mixture and stir to evenly distribute strawberry puree. Spoon into the lime rind halves. Refrigerate until firm.
  • Carefully halve the gelatin-filled lime rinds again. Sprinkle with seeds and serve.
