Watermelon Peach Sorbet

I’m back again with another exciting installation of Apartment Eats! This week, we’ve got a summer treat (with another one and an exciting promo coming up during the second week of August, so stay tuned)!

Watermelon is one of those fruits we’ve come to associate with hot, lazy summer afternoons by the poolside. Bathing suits, beach towels, sunscreen, watermelon — it all just fits. This is a two-way recipe. Make it kid-friendly or for adults only! However you craft it, it’s sure to be a satisfying summer sweet for a sweltering sunny Saturday.

Check it out!

Ingredients

1 Seedless watermelon, cut into chunks (should be about 5-6 cups total)
And either:
1/3 cup Peach juice
or
1/3 cup Peach Schnapps

Cut the watermelon into about 1-inch x 1-inch chunks, place them in a bowl or (if you have room) on a cookie sheet and pop them in the freezer for a few hours until frozen through.

Once the watermelon chunks are frozen, put them in a blender and add the peach ingredient of your choice (I went with the Schnapps for extra sweetness; I’ve been on a mad sugar crave lately). Use your blender to break up the watermelon chunks and blend until smooth. This might take a bit of coaxing since there isn’t much liquid.

Pour the blended mixture into a loaf pan and set back in the freezer for a few hours until frozen through. When you’re ready to serve, run an ice cream scoop under hot water and scoop into a bowl. Serve with a sprig of mint if you have any on hand.

    Watermelons come in many different sizes! Please be more specific, as "six cups of watermelon chunks."

    Very good point!

    Usually, the seedless watermelons (at least the ones I've always seen) are about the size of a volleyball. If I had to guess, I would say they yield about 5-6 cups of usable fruit.

    I went ahead and updated the post. Thanks for bringing it up!
