Recipe: Citrus Watermelon Sorbet

Mrs. Fields Secrets Citrus Watermelon Sorbet As the dog days of summer approach, be ready with an ice cold remedy. This sweet sorbet is heaven sent when the temps start climbing, with just a hint of tart citrus to keep things interesting. You can substitute any melon you like, but I'm partial to watermelon. Enjoy this sorbet in a dish, or in a glass topped with your favorite fizzy. Either way, it will keep you cool all summer.

Citrus Watermelon Sorbet

6 cups cubed seedless watermelon 1/2 fresh lime plus zest 1/2 cup lemonade 3 mint leaves, minced (optional) 1 pinch of salt Directions Place watermelon cubes in a blender or food processor and blend until fine. Add lime juice, zest, lemonade, mint and salt and blend until well combined. Pour into a freezer-safe container and freeze overnight, or at least 8 hours. Before serving, allow to sit on the counter for 20-30 minutes to soften. HINT: Taste test your sorbet before freezing and add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar if needed. This might be especially important if you're using a different type of melon.
