Creamy Strawberry Watermelon Sorbet

My sister’s car was in the shop for the past few weeks, so I put the extra car seat base in my car so we could run errands together with both of our babies. We went to Walmart, the mall and Costco, with the intention of also going to the grocery store on our way home, but after we left Costco – where I bought the watermelon for this recipe and almost bought a 53-inch teddy bear for Ellie before coming to my senses – we had a very intense car ride and decided to bail on the groceries.

From the minute we left Costco, both Ellie and Lucy took turns wailing, feeding off of each other’s cries. At one point, I hopped into the backseat – Theresa was driving, I was not – and wedged myself between the two car seats, attempting to rock one car seat while shushing the other. Meanwhile, the a/c was blasting and my sister was trying to play lullaby music from her phone. It was the most dramatic car ride of my life.

Needless to say, it was a lot of work getting this watermelon home to make sorbet. Luckily, the actual making of the sorbet wasn’t. In fact, it was a piece of cake. All you need to do is blend up the watermelon and strawberries and mix them with some coconut milk and simple syrup. Then you churn the mixture in an ice cream maker. That’s it.

The watermelon mellows out the sweetness of the strawberries, and the coconut creates a light, creamy texture. It’s creamy, cool and refreshing, but not too sweet. And, it’s perfect for this unbearably hot weather we’ve been having. Whip some up for yourself, you’ll see.

    This sorbet looks so yummy and refreshing. I can honestly say I have never had a watermelon-strawberry combination (I think) but it sounds divine!
    Crying baby car ride are soo stressful. I found the worst is going down the highway in rush hour (stressful by itself) with no way of pulling over while Olivia has a meltdown in the back and I can literally do nothing. I think its the stop and go, because once traffic is moving fast she always falls right asleep 😉

    […] We had everything ready for the ice cream to churn. Everything was cold. The ice cream machine’s bowl was frozen for days, and after an entire hour of churning, we still had liquid. It was so disappointing. I had literally only used it twice before – to make this root beer float ice cream and this creamy strawberry watermelon sorbet. […]
