Watermelon has always been a summer fruit that carries feelings of nostalgia. The condition your watermelon starts out in will affect its outcome. So avoid over ripened or mealy watermelon. If you happen to not have a very sweet watermelon, you can always add a little raw honey into the mixture to sweeten things up. The four ingredients are so simple… just watermelon, sea salt, raw honey and lime juice. This recipe makes enough sorbet to feed an decent sized picnic filled with adults and kids. You want the frozen watermelon to be fully frozen so it doesn’t turn to a slushy as you blend it for the sorbet. Add some lime for a little kick and to help the blending process.
Watermelon Lime Sorbet in 5 Minutes Recipe
- 4 cups of watermelon, cubed
- 2 limes, juiced
- 2-3 tbsp pure raw honey
- ¼ – ½ tsp sea salt (the salt keeps the sorbet from getting “icy” when frozen)
- optional lime shells
Dice your watermelon, and place the pieces in the freezer overnight. Once frozen, place the watermelon in a blender with the remaining ingredients. Blend until a shaved ice consistency has been created. Serve right away or freeze until ready to use. Thaw 15 minutes before serving. You can also just serve this sorbet right out of the blender with an ice cream scoop. You certainly don’t have to take the extra time to make them into cute lime shells, but it sure is a fun idea for a party and kids love them if you do.
