You’re going to love this watermelon berry sorbet recipe. Made with just 4 ingredients and a couple of steps this creamy watermelon sorbet is sure to be an indulgent summer treat that the whole family will adore.
I love summer and playing with my kids all day long every day, but this summer has been so hot! The only way that we have survived so far is by indulging in frozen treats quite frequently – at least once a day! This watermelon strawberry sorbet really helps to hit the spot and cool us down.
The watermelon at my local store has been amazing this summer – I think I have purchased one every time I’ve gone grocery shopping (which ends up being at least twice a week most of the time)! So you can imagine how many times we’ve enjoyed this sorbet this summer. The good news is that watermelon freezes really well so any melon we don’t eat gets tossed into the freezer for future recipes.
The BEST Watermelon Sorbet Recipe
This sorbet is so easy to make and I love that it is packed with two of my favorite fruits and a little bit of sugar and water. The process for making this creamy dessert is really simple. the hard part is waiting a few hours for the sorbet to firm up in the freezer, but if you prep this treat in the cool mornings, by the time the hot afternoon comes along you’ll have a treat ready to eat!
Watermelon Strawberry Sorbet Ingredients
–Water: You will need 1 cup of water to help dissolve the sugar in for a sweeter sorbet that remains creamy and smooth.
–Sugar: Strawberries and watermelon are naturally sweet so we only need 1/2 cup of granulated sugar for this recipe to cut down on any sourness the berries may bring.
–Watermelon: You will need 2 cups of fresh seedless watermelon that has been cubed into smaller pieces so that it can fit into your blender.
–Strawberries: You will need about 2 cups of fresh strawberries that have had the greens removed.
How to Make Watermelon Berry Sorbet
Bring your water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Let it boil while stirring for about 2-3 minutes until all of the sugar has dissolved.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to rest and cool for about 15 minutes.
Add your cooled sugar water mixture, watermelon, and strawberries to your blender and blend together until the mixture is nice and smooth.
Run the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any seeds and chunks.
Pour your sorbet mixture into an 8×8 baking dish and place it into the freezer for about 3 hours or until the sorbet is firm.
Remove the sorbet from the freezer and place it onto the counter for about 10 minutes to soften before scooping and serving.
Scoop the sorbet into individual serving dishes and eat immediately.

Can I make strawberry watermelon sorbet with frozen watermelon?
Yes! This recipe is great for using up frozen watermelon if you happen to have any on hand. Use fresh or frozen watermelon and the results should be the same (tasty!) If the watermelon is too hard to blend up, let it thaw for a few minutes to soften so that it’s easier for your blender to handle.
