Watermelon Peach Sorbet

I tried my Kitchenaid ice cream maker for the first time last week, and I have a feeling we’re going to be enjoying lots of ice cream this summer. My first batch was vanilla ice cream and then I moved on to sorbet. My favorite was definitely the sorbet, which I made with a mix of watermelon and peach. Here’s the recipe:

  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 small watermelon, cubed
  • 2 large peaches, chopped

I started by mixing the sugar, water and lime over medium heat until the sugar was completely dissolved. I pureed the watermelon and peaches together in a blender. I removed the water mixture from the heat and let it cool slightly, then I added the fruit mixture. I placed this in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Next, I blended and froze the mixture using a Kitchenaid ice cream attachment and placed in the freezer for a couple of hours before eating.
