Summer is here and watermelon is in season!  Yesterday I bought one of the biggest watermelons I have ever seen at Whole Foods!  I dropped some off at my daughter’s school for a snack but I had all this yummy watermelon left.  Oh, my what to do?  I decided to make a watermelon sorbet for the first time.

I must say, it came out sooo good.  It has a hint of lemon and honey and is so refreshing.
This watermelon sorbet is not too sweet.  I like the natural flavors of the fruit to shine.
Additionally, watermelon is super good for you!  It is very cleansing and helps flush out uric acid from the body.

    If you don’t own an ice cream maker, how can you make this without that?

      You can make this granite style by pouring it into a baking dish and stirring it frequently to break up the ice into small pieces. It is delicious!

    What is the 1/4 tsp of “lemon flavor?” You already have a half cup of actual lemon juice in this recipe. Do you mean imitation lemon extract? Lemon oil? Something else?

    • Ester Perez on said:

      Lemon flavor is a mixture of lemon oil with sunflower oil. I used Simply Organic Lemon Flavor. If you have pure lemon oil, use 2-3 drops. It really lifts the flavor of the fresh lemon. If you don’t have any, leave it out and the recipe will still be delicious.
      Happy cooking!
