Watermelon Lime Sorbet Slices

  • 1 cup water
  • ½ to 1 cup sugar (depending on personal preference and watermelon sweetness)
  • 8 cups cubed fresh watermelon
  • ⅓ cup lime juice
  • mini chocolate chips (optional)
  1. Place water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a boil and cook until sugar is completely dissolved to create a syrup.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. In a food processor or blender, mix together watermelon cubes, syrup and lime juice.  Blend until smooth.  Add to an ice cream machine and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. 
  3. Mix with the chocolate chips if desired and serve immediately as soft serve sorbet or freeze in an airtight container and remove a few minutes prior to serving to let soften for scooping. If cutting into slices make them 2-3 inches each so they don’t fall apart.
