The days are starting to get shorter but summer is not over yet. At least not here in Texas. It’s still super-hot outside and this watermelon sorbet has been on repeat all summer.

The kids absolutely love watermelon. I cannot keep it in the house. Usually as soon as I buy one they are begging me to cut it open and then it’s gone within a day or two.

So when I finally had enough watermelon from the kids I made this sorbet for us to enjoy.

I love a good sorbet and my favorite will always be the orange sorbet from this fresh orange market off of US19 in Clearwater FL. However, this watermelon sorbet comes a close second.

It’s also ridiculously easy to make so you can for sure whip some up this coming weekend. All you need is some watermelon, sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and salt.

Start by cubing some watermelon until you have about 8 cups. Don’t worry about how large the cubes are, as long as they fit into a blender that’s perfect.

Place the watermelon cubes in a single layer onto a baking sheet or a single layer in a 13×9 (or equivalent) baking dish. Freeze for about 4 hours or until frozen through.

Remove watermelon from freezer and add the cubes to a blender with the sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes, or longer, until the mixture is smooth.

At this point you have a very soft serve type of sorbet. You can go ahead and eat it like this or pour the mixture into a medium-sized container, cover, and place back into the freezer until it’s more firm; about another 2-4 hours.

Freezing it again will make it more scoopable so you can eat it on a cone if you want.

Of course my kids didn’t want to wait until it was frozen a second time so I scooped out half for them to eat now and froze the other half for later.

This should last in your freezer for about 1 month. Enjoy!
