Ingredients

  • 4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed

Instructions

  1. In a blender, combine the watermelon cubes, fresh mint leaves, and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish or an ice cream maker, depending on your preferred method.
  3. If using a shallow dish, freeze for about 2 hours, then scrape with a fork to create a granita-like texture. Repeat the freezing and scraping process every 30 minutes until the desired fluffy texture is achieved.
  4. If using an ice cream maker, follow the manufacturer's instructions to churn the sorbet.
  5. Serve the sorbet immediately for best texture or store in the freezer in an airtight container for later use.
