Watermelon Sorbet

Serves: 4Hands-on: 15 minutesTotal: 2 hours 15 minutesDifficulty: Medium

Serves: 4


  • 4 cups seeded cubed watermelon
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. honey


  • If you’re using an ice-cream freezer, place the watermelon cubes in the freezer while you prepare the gelatin. Add the water to a microwave-safe bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over it; let stand for 2 minutes or until the gelatin softens. Microwave on high for 40 seconds; stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Pour into a blender or food processor and add half of the watermelon, the lime juice, and honey. Cover and process until smooth. Add the remaining melon and process until smooth.
  • Pour the melon mixture into ice cube trays treated with nonstick spray; freeze until firm. If your blender can make shaved ice, transfer the cubes to the blender and process until the mixture is bright pink.
