I made the water ices and it is an easy treat for those hot summery days. Also made some wih other citrus fruit - mandarins and grapefruit also worked well.

I made the water ices, also and it's exactly as I remember when my mom and I would make it when I was a kid. I tripled the recipe this go around 'cuz we went through the first batch in no time. So easy...no fuss, no mess. Thanks for posting. I can tell this is going to be a staple this summer as it's already blazing hot here in Michigan! Oh, I didn't add any lemon peel...too lazy and hot to grate it and it tasted perfect!

Water ices came out great. I put some of mine in ice cube trays so it set up alot faster and was able to have some within an hour or so. Plan to try it with lime as well.

I'm a huge fan of this recipe. I make it for my kids all the time and somehow forgot to rate it. It does take a long time to set so do it a day ahead. If you forget to stir it during the freezing process you can easily set it out for a while then stir it and return to the fridge. Thanks for posting this one. It's in my ace in the hole file. :)

Made the water ices. Very good after an Italian dinner (#175824 Diva-Licious Pesto Pizza and #172589 Italian Salad). After making it I realized you can probably just use frozen concentrate and don't add all the water. We froze it in a little electric mixer and it worked great; it ran longer than ice cream usually does (maybe an hour). After a large dinner, this recipe was enough for six. Mmmm.

I made the water ice and my family loved it. It was easy but took a long time to set.

I also made the water ice. This is lovely - sweet and lemony and cold all at once. A perfect summer snack. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
