On a hot summer day, I long for watermelon! Light, juicy and thirst-quenching, it is the go-to fruit in our household. When the temperatures soar, I juice it up and make an extra-cold treat - watermelon sorbet! Just three simple ingredients and an ice-cream maker, and you're on your way to an ice-cold refreshing treat.
Yield: 4 cups
3 1/2 cups pureed watermelon flesh (from a cut up and de-seeded fruit)
3/4 cup honey or agave syrup (lessen or increase for desired sweetness)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Follow the instructions on your ice cream maker to churn, and freeze for another 2 hours.
Scoop out and enjoy on it's own or with fresh summer berries!
This sorbet keeps in the freezer for about 3 weeks.
