3-Ingredient Watermelon Mint Sorbet

A refreshingly easy-to-make and even easier-to-eat dessert with just 3 ingredients? Yes, please.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 cups watermelon cubes
  • 2 tablespoons Mint, chopped

Steps

  1. In a medium sauce pan, heat the sugar and water until mixture comes to a boil and the sugar is completely dissolved. Continue to heat for 2 minutes in order to reach simple syrup state. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Place in the freezer to cool quickly and completely.
  2. Cut up the melon and place in a blender or food processor in batches until all 4 cups have been blended smooth. Stir in the chopped mint and cooled simple syrup. Place in freezer to chill for 20 minutes.
  3. Following your manufacturer instructions, place the base in an ice cream maker and let mix until thickened, 20-25 minutes. At this point the sorbet will be slushy, if you'd like a more firm consistency, transfer it to a air tight tupperware and freeze for 2 hours before scooping.
