How to Make Watermelon Sorbet
It’s always great to have some frozen treats in the fridge, especially when it contains my favorite fruit, the watermelon. Watermelons are delicious and contain lots of vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin B6, all helping you to keep your body healthy. If you’re looking for a frosty and fruity dessert, try this watermelon sorbet recipe. This refreshing sorbet is great for dessert or just to enjoy as a snack. It’s also a healthier option to ice cream. Here’s how to make it:
What you need:
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
6 cups watermelon chunks, (4-pound watermelon), seeded
2 tablespoons lime juice
What to do:
Combine sugar and water in a saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently to dissolve sugar.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. This should take about 45 minutes.
Cover mixture and refrigerate until chilled. This should take around 1 hour.
Place watermelon and lime juice in a food processor and process until smooth.
Set a sieve over a large bowl and press the puree through to remove all the tiny seeds.
Whisk in the sugar syrup.
Pour the watermelon mixture into a shallow metal pan and freeze until ice crystals form around the edges, which should take about 30 minutes.
Stir the ice crystals into the center of the pan and return to the freezer. Repeat every 20 minutes until all the liquid is frozen.
Put mixture into a container and place in the freezer for 1- 1½ hours to harden.
