3/4 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
3 cups watermelon, seedless, cubes
2 cups blueberries
In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar (if using); bring to boiling, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly. If using a sugar substitute, combine water and sugar substitute in a small bowl; stir to dissolve. Do not heat.
Meanwhile, in a blender or large food processor, combine watermelon and berries. Cover and blend or process until nearly smooth. Add the sugar mixture; blend or process until smooth. Transfer to a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Cover and freeze about 2 1/2 hours or until almost solid.
Remove mixture from freezer. Using a fork, break up the frozen mixture until almost smooth but not melted. Cover and freeze for 1 hour more.* Break up the frozen mixture with a fork and serve in paper cups or shallow bowls.
