This watermelon sorbet can be made with or without the spice infusion and without an ice cream maker! It is so smooth and delicious, reminiscent of the popular fruit in a cup sold at soccer games and as street food.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place 2 1/2 cups watermelon into an electric blender and liquefy. Transfer juice to a saucepan and add sugar and lime juice. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and let simmer until all sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool, about 20 minutes. Chill and store simple syrup in a closed glass jar in the refrigerator.

  • Place remaining watermelon chunks on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid, about 4 hours.

  • Add frozen watermelon pieces, a few at a time, to the bowl of a food processor and puree. Add 1/3 to 1/2 cup of the simple syrup mixture, followed by chamoy and chile-lime seasoning; process until smooth. Serve right away or store in an airtight plastic container in the freezer.

Cook's Note:

If needed, let the frozen watermelon sit for a few minutes before processing.
