Summertime and watermelon go hand in hand. My melon sorbet is fresh, fruity and without the gluten and eggs you get in many other frozen desserts. —Rachel Lewis, Danville, Virginia

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, optional


  1. In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar. Cool slightly.
  2. Place watermelon in a food processor; process until pureed. Add orange juice, lime juice and cooled syrup; process until blended. Transfer to a large bowl; refrigerate, covered, until cold, about 3 hours.
  3. Pour into cylinder of ice cream freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions; if desired, add chocolate chips during the last 10 minutes of processing. Transfer sorbet to freezer containers, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze until firm, 2-4 hours.
