Watermelon Sorbet


I am welcoming summer 2010 with this cool and refreshing Watermelon Sorbet. There are only 3 ingredients for this recipe, namely, watermelon, sugar, and lime juice. If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, don’t fret. Just pour the watermelon mixture into some Popsicle molds, leave it overnight in the freezer, and you will have some delicious pops. If you want watermelon slush, just chill it for about 3 hours in the freezer instead. These will certainly cool you down during the sizzling hot days! Have a wonderful summer everyone!

  11. We were just given far too much watermelon, so I remembered this post and came to find it :-) Didn't have any limes, and I was going to use lemon juice instead... then decided to cheat and use lime cordial (which does contain 34% lime juice as well as some less pleasant ingredients). I used 3 tblsp lime cordial and 3 tblsp sugar (since the lime cordial is sweetened) and it came out wonderfully well. Thank you :-)
