Watermelon-Berry Sorbet

Step 2

Place the watermelon and berries in a blender or large food processor; cover and blend 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 1-½ to 2-½ hours or until almost solid.


Step 3

Break up slightly and scoop into shallow bowls. You can top with a sprinkle of fresh berries and a sprig of mint or lemon balm.


Enjoy your 4th of July! Stay safe and healthy and enjoy this fun treat!
