Creamy Watermelon Sherbert

Delicious. Easy to make. A kid favorite.

  • 5 cups watermelon puree (about 1 large watermelon)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Soften gelatin in ½ cup of the watermelon puree. Let stand 5 minutes at room temperature and then heat gently to dissolve gelatin. Cool slightly. Add remaining watermelon puree, sugar, nutmeg, lime juice and milk to gelatin mixture. Freeze in ice cream freezer according to appliance directions.
