This sorbet has 'refreshing' written all over it! Hydrating watermelon, lemon, and white tea give it a distinctly sweet watermelon-citrus flavor. Give it a try the next time you need an ice cold recipe for guests (or yourself!)!
Watermelon White Tea Sorbet
Makes 1 1/2 quarts
- 1 tsp white tea
- 1/2 cup water
- 8 cups fresh watermelon, cubed
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp honey
- pinch salt
- fresh mint leaves, for garnish
Using 1 tsp of tea leaves, brew 1/2 cup of white tea, strain, and set aside.
Add the watermelon to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Reserve 4 cups of the puree (discard or set aside the remainder) and strain it through a fine mesh sieve.
Add the brewed tea, lemon juice, honey, and salt to the strained watermelon puree. Mix well to make sure everything is evenly combined. Churn the mixture in an ice cream maker according to instructions and transfer the sorbet to an airtight, freezer-safe container.
You can serve the sorbet as is, or place it into the freeze to firm up. Garnish with fresh mint and enjoy!
