Watermelon Sorbet Bombe

Picture of Watermelon Sorbet Bombe

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.

Watermelon Sorbet - 1 cup

Chocolate Chips - 1/4 Cup

How to make Watermelon Sorbet?
Water - 1/2 Cup

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

The original recipe calls for those ingredients. I tried to incorporate the watermelon :D

Y'all must read the same magazine. This version tasting like watermelon is on our to do list. I emailed it to her last night and we both agree it sounds much better. I will note she leaves the "seeds" out because all the old people at family gatherings complained about almost chipping teeth after its been in the freezer all night. Looking forward to trying your recipe.
