Healthy Watermelon Sorbet Recipe For Glowing Skin

Written by Spencer Higgs

Jump To Recipe

Until way too recently, I thought sorbet was just the haughty term for sherbet, a word my aunt Karen would drop after dinner when she felt the need to sound fancy, or French. Turns out, I was (mostly) wrong. Sorbet and sherbet are different—sherbet uses dairy, whereas sorbet is made dairy-free with fresh fruit and ice. But it is a French word (pronounced, “sor-bay”), and it is kind of fancy (it’s often used as a palate cleanser, and frequently made with wine). Relax, I’m not fancy enough to waste wine like that. But I’m DEFINITELY into this refreshing watermelon sorbet, a simple recipe that’s both nutritious and refreshing. 

With summer in full swing, this is the perfect dessert for any backyard shindig or picnic in the park. Few desserts are so incredibly delicious yet so incredibly easy to make—no ice cream maker needed, just your trusty blender, some fresh fruit, and our secret skin-revitalizing ingredient.

Watermelon Benefits

Besides the taste, the best thing about this watermelon sorbet recipe is just how healthy it is for you! As a rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the healthier a food is. And with only five ingredients (one of those, maple syrup, being totally optional), this sorbet recipe is loaded with immune-boosting, age-defying benefits.

How To Make Healthy Sorbet 

This watermelon sorbet recipe requires very little investment in time or effort. Just a reminder that you want to use fresh, seedless watermelon chunks. You can buy watermelons without seeds at most groceries this time of year.

  1. Add the fruit, Super Youth collagen, and juice from half of a ripe lime (for a slight, zesty pop) to your blender. Blend on high until smooth—no chunks. 
  2. Transfer your smoothified sorbet-to-be into a freezer-safe pan and find a safe place in the freezer for it to sit at least 3-4 hours. Since I typically make watermelon sorbet for parties or backyard barbecues, I’ll typically prep and freeze the night before. But if you’re serving up a sorbet dessert, freezing them by mid morning should be fine. 
  3. Remove your sorbet from the freezer and let thaw for a few minutes before digging in!

Tips & Toppings

Much like fro-yo and soft serve ice cream, this sorbet recipe leaves a lot of room for toppings and add-ins. Here are some of my favorite:

Get sauced! By making sauce, that is. One of my favorites is a warm wild blackberry sauce, which makes a delightful sorbet topping and is just as easy to make. Just stir together fresh blackberries (halved), sugar, orange zest, and ground ginger over medium heat for five minutes. (This works for other berries, like raspberries, too.) 

Top with mint for a complementary contrast. Watermelon sorbet just begs for fresh mint garnish. Likewise, you can also make a mint syrup, similar to above, by bringing sugar, water, and mint tied in a cheesecloth bag to a boil, and stirring until the sugar dissolves. Serve it chilled atop your sorbet. 

Try other yummy Super Youth flavors. Call me a purist, but I personally love that unflavored Super Youth collagen dissolved undetectably into the watermelon sorbet. But feel free to get funky with it. Try adding Super Youth Peach Mango for a sweet and creamy taste, or Tropical Punch for a bonanza of berry in each bite. 

Thanks to the simplicity of this watermelon sorbet recipe, there’s a nearly endless variety of additions just waiting for you to enjoy! So have fun and get creative! Remember, there’s no mistakes—just more sorbet!
