Watermelon Sorbet is ready in minutes, and it is the perfect homemade treat on a hot summer day!
It’s Getting Hot In Here
It’s been a pretty hot summer so far. When the temperature hits 90 degrees or so in the northern mountain of Arizona, (yes, Arizona does have mountains and forest), these kinds of frozen treats are hugely necessary. It’s quickly becoming one of those summers where a lot of frozen treats will be prepared and consumed in my house. This Watermelon Sorbet has been one of them.
Make this easy watermelon sorbet using just three ingredients and without an ice cream maker!
Watermelon = Frozen Perfection!
Watermelon is a great fruit to make into a sorbet without an ice cream maker because it freezes so well. All you have to do is remove the rind and dice it into chunks. I usually place mine in my freezer overnight, but it’ll be good to use within 4-5 hours for sure. You want the frozen watermelon to be fully frozen so it doesn’t turn to a slushy as you blend it for the sorbet.
I mean, c’mon now…Vibrant flavor – Gorgeous color – Easy to make – Simple and delicious.
It’s perfect for summer!
- 1 medium seedless watermelon diced
- ¼ cup honey or any preferred sweetener
- Juice of 1 lime optional
Blend watermelon cubes and honey in a food processor or blender until combined and smooth. Adjust sweetness to your liking with remaining honey.
Pour into a rectangular pan and smooth into an even layer. Freeze for 2 hours, or until frozen but still a little soft for scooping.
If freezing overnight, cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Allow sitting at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes before serving, it will make scooping easier.
