Watermelon Cranberry Sherbet Recipe

Nothing beats a juicy watermelon in warm summer weather-unless it's this frosty sherbet. A dash of cranberry juice adds a lip-smacking tang to every spoonful. —Jeannie Klugh, Lancaster, PA
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + freezing YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 1/3 cup cranberry juice, chilled
  • 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over cranberry juice; let stand for 1 minute. Heat over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved.

"This is really refreshing. However, it's more of a sorbet than a sherbet; as sherbets have some form of dairy product in them (milk, cream, half-and-half, buttermilk, etc).

Also, I used about a 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice plus an additional 1 T. sugar in place of the cranberry juice."

"You might try lemon or lime juice but I'm not sure of the amount. All you need to do is give the watermelon some kick."
