Though the calendar says it is still firmly the middle of summer, I know fall is just around the corner – as evidenced by the orange and black bags of candy on the grocery store shelves, and pumpkin spice everything – which somehow doesn’t go with the triple-digit temperatures we’ve been experiencing this week.

So I’ll hang onto summer any way that I can…starting with this frosty fresh and smooth watermelon sorbet! Make it easy in your ice cream maker with only four simple ingredients, a few you probably have on-hand right now.

Ingredients needed:

I promised you would only need four ingredients! To make this fresh and frosty watermelon sorbet you will need:

ingredients for watermelon sorbet including sugar, water, lemon juice, and cubed watermelon
  • Chunks of fresh de-seeded watermelon
  • sugar (organic if vegan)
  • water
  • lemon juice (use a fresh lemon or bottled is fine)

Start with the best watermelon!

For the best-tasting sorbet, start with fresh juicy watermelon – nothing too overripe, tasteless, or mealy. Read how to pick the best watermelon from Real Simple.

Or you can buy your watermelon already cut so that you can see the insides and judge for yourself.

If your watermelon is not seedless, you will want to remove the seeds! You will be blending the watermelon before freezing and it will be impossible to remove any chunks of blended seeds if you miss any!

Simple syrup:

You will be making a simple syrup to blend in with the watermelon. This sorbet does have quite a bit of sugar in it and you really can’t skimp much on it or it will freeze icy and not smooth. We add in lemon juice to balance out any overly sweet flavor.

After you’ve made your simple syrup, put it in the fridge to cool. If you need to pre-freeze the bowl of your ice cream maker, then you will want to make sure the mixture is also quite chilled before pouring it in.

My ice cream maker is also a freezer and has a built-in compressor so while it helps for the mixture to be chilled, it doesn’t need to be ice-cold.

Blending it together:

When the sugar water mixture has chilled, blend it together in your blender for a few minutes until smooth.

Freezing the sorbet:

Pour it in your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions. It takes about an hour in my machine.

Go ahead and eat some of this fresh and frosty sorbet right away but put the left-overs in an airtight freezer container before it thaws and cover tightly and place in your freezer. You might need to let it sit on the counter for a few minutes when taking out to enjoy more.
