I love sorbet. I love how it is light and refreshing. When we lived in Los Angeles, we would frequent the zoo. They had fresh watermelon juice which had chunks of watermelon and I would always mix it with lemonade. I get so I crave it now. It is so refreshing and just make me happy. This is great, without being too sweet. I added about 5 strawberries because I just couldn't resist and it was wonderful. A great refreshing summer treat. I apologize for the pictures... was losing daylight and it was melting quick!
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 5 cups diced watermelon
- about 5-6 strawberries
- 1/4 lime juice (about 2 limes)
Bring water to a boil and add sugar. Boil for a minute until sugar is dissolves. Let cool.
Blend all ingredients in blender in batches, until mixed. Can put through strainer if you want it really smooth, but I like the strawberry seeds. Chill for 2 hours. Put in ice cream maker for 30 minutes. Transfer to container and freeze for at least 3 hours before serving.
