Fresh Watermelon/Cucumber Sorbet

Caroline Perrineau

With summer temperatures rising in the city and a watermelon left in my fridge, i wanted to do something a bit more fun than having a bite of a watermelon slice. On my look for summer recipes, this one came across. I tested and approved it ! Though i suggest some improvements and variations.

Ingredients for 12 small pops:

  • 600g watermelon ,rind and seeds removed, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup of agave/maple syrup or sugar
  • mint leaves

Toss all ingredients in the mixer and puree them all together. Pour the mixture in popsicles molds and let them freeze for an hour +.

Improvements:

I did mine with white sugar and i did not find it gave any additional taste. I will definitely try syrup next time.

Also i put 1 fresh lime juice, but i like acidity so next time i will add one extra fresh lime in the recipe!

Also i loved having the mint but could not really taste it until i chew it so i recommend to infuse it with the rest of ingredients (see below).

Variations:

Some recipe recommend to bring to heat in a pan the sugar/maple syrup with the lime and the mint. Which seems to me a good idea as it will helps the syrup melts and to infuse the mint flavors.

Also after blending the mixture some recommend to strain the mixture through a fine mesh, which i did not find necessary as it felt already quite smooth and fine mixture. But hey ! why not ?

If you want to play around with this recipe and make it boozy you can also add extra flavor with a bit of tequila, orange liqueur. Non boozy option would be to add blossom orange water.

Can't wait to try those options !

Enjoy and let me know how it goes :)
