Obviously crucial to our watermelon sorbet!

Lime Juice

Just enough to add a little limey flavor. This is optional if you don’t like lime or don’t have lime juice on hand.

Lemon juice also works wonderfully!

Just a little to help the frozen watermelon blend!

  1. Once again: What software, please, are you using to compute your nuttitional breakdown?
    I would have trouble limiting a serving to 1/2 cup; hence the K and P intake would deter me from the temptation! I love cold watermelon and am growing some for the first time ever in Virginia red clay soil. (They will be few and small; sandy soil along a creek is better…)
