Watermelon Sorbet

Watermelon Sorbet

We got lucky out of the gate this year. Why lucky? Well there’s always a chance when the melons come in that you’re going to get a watered down not so sweet version. Despite,  thumping them, holding them, slapping them and every other thing anyone and their Grandma has ever said that will guarantee a GOOD melon, it’s just not the case (at least for me). I won’t know until I cut that baby open. Period. Today was a good melon day. Our first of the season was sweet, sticky and juicy. The boys devoured HALF of the melon instantly and I reserved the other half to make a luscious little frozen summer treat called sorbet.

Watermelon Sorbet

Three ingredients (4 if you want to get fancy and garnish and y’all know I like fancy) are all you need and a little time to make this sorbet. Exactly why saving and enjoying half of the melon straight away is a good idea. If you’re feeling froggy, you could even do a special adult’s only batch and add a little jiggle juice to it.
