Not all “jello molds” have to be made from gelatin and not all have to be super, sugary, sweet (although those are good too!). This uncommonly refreshing treat is made with watermelon, basil, and gelled with agar-agar, a vegan gelatin alternative. I don’t work with agar very often but I did devote an entire chapter it in my book, Hello Jell-O!This recipe appears in my book but I have included it hear so you can try it before summer slips away. Even if you yourself are not vegan you can still enjoy this healthy and delicious treat… or you can make it for your vegan friend. We all have at least one.

Watermelon is the perfect compliment to summer and this sweet and tangy jello mold delivers on refreshing summer flavor. Reminiscent of the watermelon Italian ices you remember from the ice cream truck or the pool snack bar as a kid but with an adult twist. It is made with fresh watermelon and tart lime juice with a little splash of vodka for an extra kick. I wrote this recipe especially for the Cooking Channel where you can find the recipe complete with process photos.

For Labor Day weekend I made this refreshing treat perfect for that end-of-summer BBQ. It is made with a layer of cool vanilla ice cream, topped with a layer of minty watermelon and rum. Yum! Party guests devoured it with delight. This recipe will be included in my new book due out February 2012. Happy Labor Day!
