Have you ever thought which fruit would win if there were elections for the king of the summer? Definitely, it is a bit paradoxical to combine the word "kings" with "elections" at the same sentence ... But it doesn't matter. The answer for me is easy. Watermelon.  Today I will give you a recipe for watermelon sorbet which is very tasty and cool especially when the temperature reaches up to 40 degrees Celsius. Plus it is lighter than ice cream. I highly recommend it for the hot summer days that are still ongoing in Greece!

  • 2 cups watermelon pulp
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 gelatin sheets soaked in cold water
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  1. Boil the sugar and the water for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the two gelatin sheets and the lime juice in the pulp, beat the mixture in blender for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Place the mixture in the refrigerator.
  4. After two hour beat again the mixture and refreeze.
  5. Enjoy!
  • To prepare watermelon pulp remove the seeds from the watermelon, cut into small pieces and beat them in blender. Pour the mixture into a strainer to remove the seeds which are not removed before manually.
  • You can use this sorbet to make an awesome summer cocktail! In a tall chimney glass, fill with watermelon sorbet, add rum and lime juice, stir well. Garnish with mint and lime and serve!
