Fancy a refreshing bowl of sorbet but don't have an ice cream maker? We've got you covered. This easy-peasy watermelon sorbet is almost too good to be true. All you need is a watermelon and a food processor.


To make easy-peasy watermelon sorbet, you'll need:

  • 1 watermelon, peeled, cubed and seeded


  1. Place the watermelon cubes in an even layer on a baking tray.
  2. Pop the baking tray in the freezer and freeze until the watermelon is solid—about 2 hours.
  3. Whiz the watermelon cubes, in batches, in a food processor, and puree until smooth.
  4. Divide the puree among two loaf tins or one large baking tin, packing down as you add more on top.
  5. Put the pans in the freezer and freeze until the sorbet is scoopable—usually 1–2 hours.
  6. To serve, scoop the sorbet into bowls and eat straight away.
