Watermelon Mint Sorbet

Watermelon Mint Sorbet: (*Picture will be added this summer when I make it again. Sorry about that!)

*This is the most REFRESHING treat you will ever taste on a hot summer’s day! I can be served as a sorbet in bowls garnished with a mint leaf or 2 or can be frozen into popsicles using popsicle molds! I discovered this recipe when I bought a HUGE watermelon last summer. I had so much watermelon left over I knew I would never eat it all before it spoiled. I hate wasting food…and thus the watermelon mint sorbet was born…

Ingredients:

-1quart of watermelon

-juice of 2 limes

-5 fresh mint leaves

-2 Tbsp. honey

-1/4 cup stevia

Method:

  1. Chop up your watermelon and place in a blender with your other ingredients.
  2. Blend until smooth and place the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour (you want it to be really cold so it will create a true sorbet consistency when you add it to your ice cream maker).
  3. Add your cold mixture to your ice cream maker (I use the ice cream maker attachment I have for my Kitchen Aid, but any ice cream maker will do the trick). Let the ice cream maker run for at least 20 minutes until the consistency of sorbet. You can also use a Vitamix, and if so, add 2 cups of ice before blending!
  4. Enjoy and store the extra (if you have any left is you have company) in the freezer in ice cream molds for popsicles later (makes a great refreshing treat on the go or relaxing by the pool in the hot summer months).
