Watermelon is one of the summer’s most popular fruits and sorbet is a simple and delicious way to enjoy it. It’s easy to make and requires just a few ingredients, so it makes a great snack or dessert for the whole family!
Sorbet is a frozen treat, typically made with sweetened and flavored water. It’s less creamy than ice cream, but still tangy and refreshing. It’s also dairy-free, which means it’s perfect for those with lactose intolerance or a milk allergy.
The easiest way to make watermelon sorbet is to blend or process the frozen fruit with lime juice and honey. This method gives you a smoother texture that’s easier to scoop than traditional sorbet, and it’s also healthier.
You’ll need a blender or food processor to make this recipe. Use a heavy duty one, as the mixture will be fairly large and you don’t want it to break or get stuck in the blades.
First, prepare your ingredients: Remove the rind and cut watermelon into chunks. Arrange the chunks in an even layer on a baking sheet and freeze.
When the fruit is completely frozen, transfer the sorbet to a freezer-safe container and freeze until firm, at least a couple hours. You’ll have to thaw it slightly before serving, but it’s super-refreshing and will make you forget about the hot weather!
You can make a simple sugar syrup to flavor the sorbet, or you can use an infused or fruity simple syrup. For example, you could use a lemon and mint simple syrup or even a simple strawberry or blueberry syrup.
To make a simple sugar syrup, combine sugar with water in a small saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until the sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and set aside to cool.
While the sugar syrup is cooling, blend the watermelon in a blender or food processor until it’s completely smooth. Scrape down the sides as needed.
Once the watermelon is pureed, pour the cooled sugar syrup over it and stir until well combined. You can also transfer the sorbet to an ice cream maker and churn it according to your manufacturer’s instructions.
This is a perfect summer treat that you can make in just 5 minutes and is easy to make without an ice cream maker! It’s also vegan, paleo and gluten-free!
The best part about this sorbet is that it’s so healthy! It’s low in calories and contains important vitamins A, B6 and C. It’s also a good source of antioxidants and amino acids.
You can also add a little maple syrup to this sorbet, if you like it sweeter. You can serve it with small watermelon slices and/or mint leaves (optional).
Sorbet is a fantastic summer treat that is perfect for those who are watching their weight or those on a special diet! It’s low in calories, high in vitamin A, and a great source of potassium.
This sorbet is easy to make and only requires a few ingredients, so it’s a great recipe for those with limited time. It’s also a perfect choice for parties!
