  • Ready In:

It’s easy to fit in more fruits when they look, smell, and taste like this! All this dessert consists of is ripe watermelon, fresh basil, and a twist of lemon, yet this wholesome fruit sorbet offers a cool treat on a summer day, or a nice palate cleanser after a hearty meal.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups cubed fresh ripe watermelon
  • ½ cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Place the watermelon, basil, and lemon juice in a blender. Process just until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a shallow airtight freezer container. For best results, freeze for 3 to 4 hours until the texture is frozen yet scoopable. Use a metal ice cream scoop to portion into serving dishes.
  3. Freeze any leftovers. To serve again, thaw at room temperature for about 10 minutes before scooping.
