Strawberry Watermelon Sorbet

Can you believe it’s September?? The kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter, the acorns and leaves are starting to fall, and best of all, its football season! But summer is hanging on strong here and I want  need something to help me cope with these hot days.

And I think I found it in this Strawberry Watermelon Sorbet. A fresh and fruity frozen treat combined with my favorite, Pink Moscato, to help me ease out of this summer heat and into the coolness of fall.

Yes, this is an adult’s only treat because, well, I deserve it and you do too! Like yourself, I work hard and every now and then I just need a little “me” time.

So after the kids have left for school, mix up a batch of my Strawberry Watermelon Sorbet so you can enjoy it later in the day while you’re doing your next home pedi before the kids come home. And while you’re at it, pour yourself a glass of wine, preferably pink Moscato, and relax. Or for a real treat, pour a little wine over the sorbet {smile}.

After all, it’s only a couple more hours before you’ll be back on your feet, making dinner and cleaning up after everyone else until it starts all over again tomorrow morning.
Strawberry Watermelon Sorbet


2 cups strawberries, washed, rinsed, and topped

1 to 2 cups watermelon

¾ cup water

¾ cup granulated sugar

½ cup pink Moscato

3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice


In a small saucepan, add water and sugar. Stirring continuously, heat until sugar is dissolved. Once dissolved, set aside and let cool to room temperature.

Add room temperature sugar water, fruit, lime juice, and wine into a blender and puree until all ingredients are completely mixed together, about 2 minutes.

Pour into a freezer safe bowl and freeze overnight. You can also make it in the early morning so you can enjoy it later in the day while everyone is away with a glass of wine. Enjoy!

*Since this does have wine, please drink eat responsibly.

*Helpful Hints*

- If freezing overnight, leave out for about 20-30 minutes before scooping as it will be frozen hard

- Can also use a white zinfandel wine or your wine of choice

- All measurements are US
