Watermelon Sorbet


Watermelon SorbetThis is delicious!  You will notice I used the same recipe for making the simple syrup in this recipe as in the pineapple sorbet.  It really depends on how much sweetness you need, though.  It’s really a matter of taste.  Trust your instincts.  This recipe is much better when it’s watermelon season.  The goal is to get a puree with almost no syrup, and just use the natural sweetness of the fruit.  If you absolutely must cheat to impress the neighbors, add a couple drops of red food coloring to the puree to make it pop out even more.


  • 1 small seedless watermelon (about 4 cups of cubed watermelon)
  • 1 cup of simple syrup
  • 1 lime, juiced


Make the simple syrup by boiling the water and adding the sugar, stirring until it dissolves.  Let it cool to room temperature.

Puree the watermelon, lime juice and the syrup in a blender or food processor.  Freeze using an ice cream maker according to their instructions (or put in a pyrex and freeze until desired consistency, which should be a bit slushy). I have a Cuisinart and it’s great and super easy to use.  If using a food processor, place in a container in the freezer for a little while to get the perfect scoopable consistency.  Serve in pretty glasses and enjoy!


You can put a squirt of vodka on it when you serve for a little extra kick.

Your Comment:

Here are the recipes finally. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and never got around to it. Some of you know that I love cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. There is a certain alchemy that has to happen in order to have the ingredients turn into delicious creations. There is no real secret behind it, just lots of fresh ingredients, time and patience to try things out and some creativity.

Not everything I make turns out perfect on the first try. Most of the time, even when I follow recipes carefully, there are some adjustments that have to be made in order to make it exactly the way I like it. In some cases recipes have failed miserably and a last-minute plan B has been tackled, and in other cases I had to toss the first batch of something and repeat the steps until it works out.

I hope these recipes bring a lot of magic to your meals, just as they have brought magic to mine. They have all been thoroughly tested and I will never post something I have not made myself. Some adjustments may have to be made for dietary preferences or limitations. Feel free to email me or drop me a note if you have any questions.
