Watermelon-Berry Sorbet


Here is a tasty summer recipe you can easily make at home.  This refreshing dessert packs in tons of cancer fighting anti-oxidants in the form of berries and watermelon.  It is a bit high in sugar, but a little splurge every now and then never killed anyone.  Enjoy!

  • 1  cup water
  • 1/2  cup sugar
  • 2  cups seeded watermelon cubes
  • 2  cups fresh berries (raspberries, strawberries, and/or blueberries)
  •   Snipped fresh lemon balm
  •   Fresh lemon balm sprigs
  •   Fresh raspberries and/or blueberries (optional)

Directions

1. In a medium saucepan combine water and sugar; bring to boiling,stirring frequently. Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

2. Place the watermelon and berries in a blender or large food processor; cover and blend or process for 30 seconds. Add the warm syrup and blend until almost smooth. Transfer the mixture to a 3-quart rectangular baking dish or a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Place in the freezer, uncovered, for 1-1/2 hours or until almost solid.

3. Remove sorbet from freezer. Using a fork, break up the frozen fruit into a somewhat smooth mixture. Stir in snipped lemon balm. Freeze 1 hour more*. Break up the ice with a fork and serve in shallow bowls.Top with lemon balm sprigs and a few blueberries and/or raspberries. Note: If mixture is frozen longer than the final hour, let it stand at room temperature about 20 minutes before breaking up mixture with a fork and serving.
