4 cups of ripe watermelon, cubed and deseeded, 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, washed and patted dry, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup water 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice and a pinch of salt
- To craft a basil-infused mix begin by combining the granulated sugar and water over medium heat
- Stir gently until the sugar dissolves completely, creating a simple syrup then add the fresh basil leaves and let them steep in the syrup for about 10 minutes to allow their aromatic essence to infuse. Strain the basil-infused simple syrup to remove the basil leaves.
- While the basil infusion takes place, combine the watermelon cubes, fresh lime juice, and a pinch of salt in a blender and pulse until you achieve a smooth, velvety consistency.
- Gradually incorporate the basil-infused syrup into the watermelon puree, folding it gently with a spatula.
- Pour the harmonious mixture into an ice cream maker, and allow the mixture to churn until it transforms into a velvety and frozen delight.
- Once the sorbet reaches the desired consistency, transfer it to an airtight container. Seal the container and let the sorbet further mature in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or until it achieves its optimal texture.
Add a finishing touch with chopped toasted coconut for added texture and flavor. Enjoy the symphony of tropical flavors in Tangy Mango Frozen Yogurt!
