- 1 x ripe watermelon cubed
- 1/2 of a lime Juiced
Dice the watermelon, remove seeds, and place the pieces in the freezer overnight. After several hours in the freezer, you can proceed, but if the watermelon isn’t completely frozen, the sorbet will have more of a slushy texture rather than be a solid sorbet.
Place your diced, frozen watermelon into a food processor, or whisk, and add some lime juice. I used 2-3 cups of watermelon for each half lime, but it’s a good idea to just add a little at the beginning, and add more, to taste, later on. Don’t add too much liquid at the beginning or it will tend to fly
Start with just a few drops, and slowly add in more as you process.
Continue to mix the watermelon, and lime juice into the bowl, until you get a sorbet-like texture. You can add a little more lime juice as needed, for taste and texture.
If you want a sweeter sorbet, you can add in a little honey to taste. But, the natural healthy melon is fewer in calorie.s
Serve immediately, or pop into the freezer again for later.
Serve in a brandy-snap basket as a refreshing dessert, with crunch.
