This recipe was really easy and fun to make with my 2 kids! They loved it and I loved i too because it was one way to get them eating healthier. I did only a half a cup of white sugar but it still came out good. Definitely on of my favorite sorbet recipes! Read More

It's a nice basic recipe and while I halved the sugar, the flavor is good. The only thing I'd suggest is, after sitting in the freezer overnight, bring it out to let it thaw just a bit, (maybe 10 minutes), before serving. Mine was like very dry snow, until it melted just a bit. Read More

1 cup sugar is way to much! I suggest a half cup instead, but other then that this was great! Read More

Turned out well. My food processor worked better to puree the chunks of watermelon than the blender. Read More

I was worried at first when it wasn’t freezing up. But after the 20 minutes in the ice cream freezer it was perfect. I used only half of the sugar and it was just right. Maybe a little more lemon juice next time. Read More

The only change I made was to put it in a container into the chest freezer, set the timer for an hour, take it out and mix it up, return it to the freezer and repeat two times, then let it freezer over night. Turned out yummy! Read More
