Watermelon Sorbet

written by African Kaya 15th January 2013


Sorbet is one of those things I used to LOOOVE when I was in campus. I particularly loved the strawberry, lemon and water melon flavours. Just over a year ago I visited Kisumu and had really nice lime sorbet some place near the Nakumatt. With the current hot weather hitting our country this month i hope this will help you cool down a little bit




  • 3/4- 1 cup of sugar ( you could also use stevia or splenda or any other diabetic sugar)
  • 8 cups of watermelon
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon or lime juice
  • zest of 1/2 lemon


1.      In a saucepan bring water and sugar to boil. Reduce heat, simmer and stir until the sugar is dissolved completely. Set aside to cool

2.      Place the water melon, lemon/lime juice and zest in a blender or food processor and puree.

3.      Press the puree through a fine sieve/strainer to remove the seeds.

4.      Combine the sugar syrup and watermelon juice

5.      Place in an air tight container and put in the  freezer for about 4 hours the remove and stir

6.      Return to the freezer till firm.
