Pineapple Sorbet (Without an Ice Cream Maker):
1 ripe pineapple, peeled and cubed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
Juice of 1 lime
In a saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring it to a gentle boil until the sugar dissolves completely, creating a simple syrup.
Remove the saucepan from heat and let the simple syrup cool completely.
Place the cubed pineapple and lime juice in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Add the cooled simple syrup to the pineapple mixture and blend again until well combined.
Pour the mixture into a shallow, freezer-safe dish and cover it with plastic wrap.
Place the dish in the freezer and let it freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
Once the sorbet is frozen, remove it from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly before serving.
Scoop the pineapple sorbet into bowls or cones, and enjoy the tropical flavors of summer!
Watermelon Sorbet (With an Ice Cream Maker):
4 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
In a blender or food processor, blend the watermelon until smooth.
Pour the watermelon puree into a saucepan and add the sugar and lemon juice.
Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves completely. Remove from heat.
Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Once chilled, pour the watermelon mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Transfer the churned sorbet to a freezer-safe container, cover it, and let it freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
When ready to serve, take the container out of the freezer and let the sorbet sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften.

How to make the watermelon sorbet without an icecream maker
Place the watermelon cubes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread them out evenly. Freeze the watermelon for about 2-3 hours or until it becomes solid.
Once the watermelon is frozen, transfer the cubes to a blender or food processor. Add the sugar and lemon juice.
Blend the mixture until it becomes smooth and creamy. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender or food processor a few times to ensure everything is well incorporated.
Once blended, pour the mixture into a shallow, freezer-safe dish. Cover the dish with plastic wrap or a lid.
Place the dish in the freezer and let it freeze for about 2 hours.
After 2 hours, remove the dish from the freezer and use a fork to scrape and stir the sorbet mixture, breaking up any ice crystals that may have formed.
Return the dish to the freezer and repeat the scraping and stirring process every hour for about 3-4 hours, or until the sorbet reaches the desired consistency. This process will prevent the sorbet from freezing into a solid block and help create a smooth, scoopable texture.
Once the sorbet has reached the desired consistency, it is ready to be served. Scoop the watermelon sorbet into bowls or cones, and enjoy the refreshing coolness of summer!
Note: If you prefer a sweeter sorbet, you can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste. You can also add a splash of mint syrup or a handful of fresh mint leaves for an extra burst of flavor.
Note: Feel free to experiment with other fruits and flavors to create your own signature sorbets. The possibilities are endless, and the joy of homemade frozen treats is truly unparalleled!
