When it’s hot out, so hot that you can barely stand it, all we crave are frozen treats to cool us down. And if you feel the same way, but you’re looking to keep your frozen treat calorie intake to a minimum, then you’re going to fall for this ridiculously simple 1-ingredient idea. All you need is some seedless watermelon, peeled and cubed. Here’s what you do to make an almost too-good-to-be-true watermelon sorbet without any added ingredients:
- Arrange your cubes of watermelon on a 9″x13″ baking sheet in one even layer. Then, put that baking sheet in the freezer for at least 2 hours, allowing watermelon to freeze completely.
- Remove the tray from the freezer. Then, in about 4 batches or so, add watermelon to your food processor and puree until completely smooth.
As you go, empty the puree into a loaf pan, packing down and evening out the sorbet with a spatula or wooden spoon. Continue until all the watermelon is pureed and the loaf pan(s) is fully packed.
- Place the loaf pan(s) in the freezer for another hour or two. When you’re ready to enjoy, remove from the freezer, allow to sit on the counter for about 5 minutes, then scoop out into bowls with an ice cream scooper. Yum!
My husband and I LOVED this watermelon sorbet. We especially loved the fact that it was perfectly sweet without having any extra sugar added. It certainly satisfies the craving for a frozen treat without packing on the calories, so we count that as a major win!
Have any of you Tip Heroes tried this with any other fruit?
