Watermelon Lime Sorbet

This week has been so HOT!!!! I swear we have been having July temperatures in the month of June! I have been craving, cold, slushy treats and I can’t get enough watermelon in my diet. My youngest grandson, Cooper, can seriously eat almost a half of watermelon in my sitting, now I understand how he feels.  This is a quick and easy treat that will keep you cool and satisfy your sweet tooth.

Ingredients:
2 fresh limes
4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
Directions:
 
  • Mix the sugar and water together in a small pan. Cook on a medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  • Pour 4 cups of watermelon into a blender and puree.
  • Squeeze the juice from the fresh limes into the puree and then add the simple syrup to the puree, and mix well.
  • Pour into a 9×9 casserole dish, and cover with aluminum foil.
  • Place into the freezer for 4 hours.
  • Remove from the freezer and then once out, take a fork to loosen it up. You can even put chunks into the blender for a second to make it smooth.
