Preparation of watermelon frost

Frost of mellone: history of dessert
As we have anticipated, the gelu di muluni was born in Sicily where it is traditionally prepared on the day of August 15th . The word mellone derives from the Italianization of muluni , watermelon in Sicilian dialect.
Like so many other traditional recipes, it has many variations. In fact, you can decorate the watermelon frost with hazelnuts, dark chocolate , pistachios and everything you like best, for a presentation in style.
This fresh and light dessert can be kept for a maximum of 1-2 days in the refrigerator, well covered by the cling film. We do not recommend freezing in the freezer so as not to alter its consistency.
