Bombe is a dessert made of different layers of ice cream or sorbet. So here I am presenting a watermelon Bombe. It looks just like a watermelon. I love the contrast in colors. I am sure this will be a huge hit for a party or a celebration. Reveal the bombe as a surprise and you can surely get your guests go Wooow! While cutting a wedge out of the bombe you can reveal the treasure inside.
It is simple and an stunning summer dessert . I have made the layers with vanilla ice cream and watermelon-lemon sorbet.
I have done the watermelon sorbet bombe without a plastic wrap. To get a perfect dome shape I have presented here another technique.

Step 1: Ingredients
Watermelon Sorbet Bombe
Vanilla Ice Cream - 2 Cup
Food colors - Apple Green, Red (1 drop)
Watermelon Sorbet - 1 cup
Chocolate Chips - 1/4 Cup
How to make Watermelon Sorbet?
Water - 1/2 Cup
Sugar - 1/2 Cup
Honey - 1 Tsp
Watermelon Juice - 1 Cup
Lemon Juice - 1 Tbsp
Step 2: Watermelon sorbet
Peel the watermelon. Remove the seeds. Slice them into small chunks.
With a hand blender, blend the watermelon.
Strain it to remove any fiber present.
To get a darker shade of watermelon flesh while making the bombe, I added a pinch of Red edible food color. This is just for the appearance. It is completely optional.
The bombe will look good even without the food color. It will be of slightly pink and lighter shade.
Step 3: Lemon Juice
Slice the lemon. Remove the seeds.
With the help of a lemon squeezer get the lemon juice.
Step 4: Sugar syrup
In a pan at medium heat, pour the measured amount of water. Add sugar and let it dissolve in the water.
When the sugar is dissolved let it cool.
We need to just dissolve the water. Do not over heat the sugar syrup till the brown color stage.
Step 5: Freeze
Add the cooled sugar syrup and lemon juice into the watermelon puree.
Combine them well.
Pour into an airtight container. Place it in the freezer for 4-5 hours or until almost set.
