- This recipe uses frozen watermelons and frozen cherries. I used a fresh seedless watermelon where I removed the rind, cut the watermelon into small cubes, placed it on a baking sheet (a freezer bag would work as well), and then into the freezer until frozen. This takes about 2-3 hours.
- I used a store-bought bag of frozen cherries, but you can apply the same freezing process to fresh cherries; just make sure you remove the pits first.
