This Watermelon Sorbet recipe is quite simple to make and is a refreshing dairy free frozen treat that is perfect for cooling off on scorching summer days.
Sorbet is a frozen treat made from sweetened water and your favorite fruit. This recipe is for watermelon sorbet which you'll find has a lighter flavor than a lot of sorbets you can make or buy. The key to making this recipe great is finding a melon that has a lot of flavor and natural sweetness.
To make sorbet you will need an ice cream maker like this one. If you do not have one you can make it into a granita instead by freezing it in a pan and scraping the ice with a fork to serve.
Don't toss the watermelon rind! Save it to make Watermelon Rind Preserves and impress your friends and family.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 8 cups cubed seedless watermelon
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- In a small saucepan, bring water, lemon juice and sugar to a boil. Boil for 1-2 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool completely.
- Using your blender, process watermelon until pureed.
- Transfer the puree and sugar water to an ice cream maker. Follow the instructions that came with your ice cream maker for making sorbet.
- If you don't have an ice cream maker; pour mixture into a shallow dish, place dish in freezer, stir occasionally until sorbet reaches desired consistency. If sorbet over-freezes you can allow it to thaw slightly then process it in a blender to get the desired consistency.
