Watermelon Sorbet

July 7, 2010

Sweet and juicy watermelon is the perfect summer fruit.  Add a hint of mint and a touch of lemon and it  freezes into summer perfection.

Once it’s frozen, I have a feeling it’d be good served with a splash of vodka for a grown-up treat.

  • Watermelon, enough chunks to fill a 2 qt blender jar
  • Juice of 1 or 2 lemons
  • Mint Leaves
  • Simple Syrup, 1/3 cup (or use corn syrup)

Cut into a fresh watermelon and enjoy that wonderful fragrance

Cut the watermelon into chunks and fill the blender container.

Add simple syrup.

Pour in the lemon juice.

Throw in a few mint leaves.

Puree just until it’s well-blended.

Chill the mixture until it’s very cold then pour it into your ice cream maker.

Freeze according to your machine’s instructions.

If you want it pretty, garnish with a melon ball and mint leaf.  Enjoy!

Have you ever considered straining the watermelon after having blended it? I’ve seen that done in frozen drinks before to remove the solids and I wonder if it would make for a smoother texture.

I like the chunkiness and texture so I didn’t strain but I’m sure it would work.
