When my roommate moved to Canada, she left behind an ice cream maker. It is now one of my favorite summer things. I've made watermelon sorbet a number of times now, and love it for a refreshing (light) summer dessert. This time, I added mint from my plant.

This is my first time posting in this category, and the recipe is cross-posted on my new blog.

I adapted the recipe based on a lot of sorbet research. This version doesn't have any added sugar, and will likely freeze harder than store-bought. The upside to this is that the recipe is VERY low calorie, and as healthy as a watermelon!

Watermelon Mint Sorbet

Ingredients:
Seedless watermelon chunks (equivalent to approximately 4 blended cups, about 1/2 a watermelon)
2 sprigs mint (optional)
Juice from one lime (or to taste)
1 oz. Liquor (vodka is the most neutral, but feel free to experiment)
1 dropper liquid stevia (to taste)
Ice cream maker, chilled

Put all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until cool, or use a pre-refrigerated watermelon. Start ice cream maker and pour mixture into reservoir. Process according to your machines manual. My Cuisinart requires about 20 minutes run-time. Eat right away and freeze any remainder. Defrost a few minutes before serving from the freezer to soften.

*I apologize for the instagrammed photo, I made it at night and didn't have natural light to photograph with. It really does look this good though!

I'm going to have to try this! I remember an old sorbet recipe that, instead of using an ice cream maker, required periodic stirring after placing it in the freezer. Do you think this might work for this recipe as well?

Hi Jakabird!

I believe that would work too. I've also heard of freezing it in a shallow pan/cookie sheet, then breaking it up and running it through a blender.

Good luck! Let us know how it turns out!!
