Recipe: Watermelon Sorbet


Recipe: Watermelon Sorbet

Prep time: 4-5 hours of freeze time

Cook time: None

Yield: 3 servings

Serving size: About 1 cup


3 cups cubed seedless watermelon

3 tablespoons sugar

3 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon lime juice

zest from 1 lime


Place the watermelon in 1 or 2 gallon-sized freezer bags and freeze for 2-4 hours, until frozen.

Meanwhile, make a simple syrup by heating the water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved and the water looks clear again.

Remove from the heat, pour the simple syrup into a glass or liquid measuring cup to chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.

When the watermelon is frozen, blend the watermelon, lime juice, lime zest, and the set-aside simple syrup in a high speed blender or food processor, scraping down the sides occasionally.

Transfer the sorbet into a freezer-safe container that it will be served out of and refreeze it for an additional 2 hours, or until frozen.

Scoop and serve.
