It’s SO HOT. Let’s eat watermelon together. Let’s just eat watermelon and sit and sweat.
Okay, some of you are overachievers. This is for you. Take some of your sweet, sweet watermelon and chop it into cubes (take the rind off first, silly). Put it in a bag or receptacle in your freezer. Once it’s frozen make it into sorbet using just a little yogurt and sugar and a food processor or blender. Add some vanilla or lime juice (or anything else you think would work with watermelon) if you’re super serious about it.
- 2 cups melon frozen
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla or lime juice (optional)
- When you see lovely watermelons, honeydews, and cantaloupes on sale, buy them up. Eat half, then cube and freeze the other half. When you want a quick dessert or smoothie, pull out a bag of frozen melon and whip this up.
- Add all the ingredients to a food processor or blender and process until just smooth. Don't blend too much, or the sorbet will become oversoft. Serve immediately or stick it into the freezer to enjoy later.
