As watermelons finally come into season, here is a melt in your mouth recipe for watermelon sorbet, the perfect ending to a bbq bash!


You’ll Need:
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup light corn syrup or light agave nectar (the syrup or nectar makes the resulting texture quite smooth)
* 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
* 3 fresh mint leaves
* 3 pounds watermelon, rind, and seeds removed, cut into chunks (approximately 6 c. of watermelon)

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup (or agave nectar), citrus juice, and mint to a boil, stirring gently until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and let cool.

While the syrup blend is cooling, using a blender, puree half of the watermelon chunks, then strain through a fine-mesh strainer. Repeat with the remaining watermelon, adding to the bowl of pureed melon. Add the syrup, stirring well and pour into prepared pop molds or into a shallow dish.

Freeze & Enjoy

  1. this sounds yum and you’ve reminded me i should make ice cubes from this stuff. normally i just run watermelon, mint, and basil through the juicer and we drink it. these popsicles are going to be so good.

  2. so glad i saw this recipe! my grandson is on a watermelon kick and he is going to be so happy i have them waiting for him when he visits next week!!!:beaverhug:
