Ginger Mint Watermelon Sorbet

I'm finely back home for a couple of days.  I'm so sorry that I've been so sporadic with posts lately. Traveling to Canada, single parenting, and doing homework left me little time to get the posts out that I wanted to.  But, I'm home and it's HOT here!

Are you needing a cool Summer treat?  I've got a really refreshing dessert to beat the heat.  Nothing taste more like Summer then watermelon.  This frozen treat has a little kick with a hint of fresh ginger and mint.  And it's so easy to make.

Ginger Mint Watermelon Sorbet
1 small seedless watermelon (about 4 cups of watermelon pureed)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp. fresh ginger grated
2 tbsp. finely chopped mintpinch of salt

Start by making a simple syrup.  Place the sugar, water, ginger, mint and salt in a small sauce pan.  Bring to a boil and boil for one minute.  Pour into a glass jar and refrigerate till it is cold.  

Remove all the watermelon from rind, place in a blender and blend until smooth.  Refrigerate for a couple hours.

Drain the ginger and mint out of the simple syrup. Combine the syrup and watermelon puree, place in the bowl of an ice cream maker.  Freeze according to the directions of your machine.  Store in an airtight container in the freezer.  

What's your go-to Summer flavor?  

P.S. Got these cute little milk glass glasses at the little Idaho vintage market I went to with my sis-in-law and mother-in-law.  There were only 5 (perfect number for our family) but, I'll be on the hunt for more. 


  1. This looks so good and refreshing! Homework? Are you guys not out of school yet!

    1. Yes, it's Summer, but I'm taking some classes to keep my teaching credential here in Cali.

    2. OMG! I didn't realize you were a teacher. Good for you, do you teach now? Sorry, just stumbled across your site through the land of nod!

    3. I am not teaching right now, but someday I want to have the option of being able to go back. Just trying to stay relevant.
