1 Cut a medium-sized watermelon in half, slicing it through from top to bottom. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon, leaving 3cm of flesh all around, at the rind. There will be juices in the watermelon shells; set aside one cup of it. 

2 In a large mixing bowl, combine 340g Jell-O Strawberry Gelatin Dessert, 60g gelatin and 4 cups of boiling water. Stir with a whisk until the gelatin has dissolved.

3 Stir in 720ml soju* (a vodka-like Korean liquor) and the reserved cup of watermelon juice, then 360g lychee-flavoured nata de coco.

4 Place the watermelon shells on a tray and pour in the soju mixture. Chill for at least 4 hours. Slice to serve.

*Soju is available at major supermarkets. For a kid-friendly version of this dessert, replace the soju with watermelon juice (sieved to remove pulp).
