Braces-Friendly Recipe: Watermelon Sorbet

With the weather starting to heat up, what would be better than a cold (braces-friendly) treat? You're in luck! Our friends at the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) have just the thing for you. Below you'll find the complete recipe for Watermelon Sorbet. Enjoy!

Watermelon Sorbet


¾ cup water
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon lime juice
2 to 3 cups watermelon, diced, no seeds or rind


In a small saucepan, heat the water, sugar, and lime juice on medium high for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Chill this “syrup” at least 20 minutes. In the meantime, place the watermelon chunks in a food processor or blender and liquefy them. Add the chilled syrup to the watermelon puree and blend. Freeze sorbet in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions. Serve immediately.
