Summer is almost here, and people will be spending more time outside being active and enjoying the warmer temperatures. What’s better on a hot summer day than a tasty frozen fruit treat? Luckily, our friends at the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) have just the thing, Watermelon Sorbet! You can find the complete recipe below:
• 1 teaspoon lime juice
• ¾ cup water
• ¼ cup sugar
• 2 to 3 cups watermelon, diced, no seeds or rind
In a small saucepan, heat the water, sugar, and lime juice on medium high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Chill this “syrup” at least 20 minutes. In the meantime, place the watermelon chunks in a food processor or blender and liquefy them. Add the chilled syrup to the watermelon puree and blend. Freeze sorbet in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Serve immediately.
