It’s summer vacation! Just saying it makes me so happy J. I don’t know about you, but where I live it gets reaaally hot and humid during the summer. I saw this recipe the other day and decided to try it, and I was instantly in love! Today I am going to teach you how to make a super cool, refreshing, and healthy treat for those days when you can’t seem to cool down!
What is this treat I am describing? Watermelon sorbet of course! This is how you make it:
You will need:
3 cups of watermelon
¼ cup lemon or lime juice
½ cup water
¼ cup sugar
What you do:
A couple hours (I recommend 3 or 4) before you plan to make the sorbet, cut up your watermelon into chunks. Put them in a large Ziploc bag and then put the bag in your freezer. Try and lay the bag flat and spread the watermelon evenly so they freeze faster. Next, after your watermelon has been freezing for 3 or 4 hours, boil the water, sugar, and lemon or lime juice until the sugar has dissolved. Then let this mixture cool to room temperature. Next, put your frozen watermelon and water mixture into your blender and blend it up! Make sure you blend it until it is a smooth consistency and there are no chunks. After that, pour your mixture into the bowl or container you will be serving or storing it in. Put this container in the freezer for another 2 hours, just to make sure your mixture is nice and firm before you serve it. Viola! Delicious, healthy relief from the summer heat. You can eat this sweet treat without feeling guilty because it has barely any sugar and it is all fruit!
Just a quick tip for serving: if you are having a hard time scooping the sorbet, run your spoon under warm water before scooping it out.
