With the temperature creeping upwards, we need to find easy ways to cool off and have fun indoors when it’s too hot to be outside.
In our home, nothing welcomes summer better than the arrival of Goldenbrook Watermelon Sherbet in our local Brookshire’s stores! Not only is the sherbet delicious all by itself, I also enjoy making Watermelon Sherbet Freezes by blending the sherbet with club soda or lemon-lime soda and processing until smooth. It’s an easy summer frozen drink for all ages!
Another fun way to get your kids involved in the kitchen during their summer vacation is to make these adorable Watermelon Sherbet Slices. Each slice looks like a wedge of watermelon, and they are so easy to make. In no time at all, your kids will see success from their hard work, which makes this worth the time and effort – not to mention it’s just old-fashioned summer fun.
Goldenbrook Watermelon Sherbet is on sale this week at your local Brookshire’s, so it’s a great time to stock up for the hot days ahead. Enjoy!
Watermelon Sherbet Slices
1 half gallon Goldenbrook lime sherbet
1 half gallon Goldenbrook Homemade Vanilla ice cream
1 half gallon Goldenbrook Watermelon Sherbet
Prepare a round springform pan by covering the bottom with wax paper. Allow lime sherbet to soften and spread a 2-inch ring around the outer edge of the pan to form the “rind,” leaving the middle of the pan empty. The ring of lime sherbet should be about two inches in height as well. Return to freezer to harden.
Allow vanilla ice cream to soften and spread a 1/2-inch ring around the pan, just inside of the lime sherbet “rind” layer. Return to freezer to harden.
Allow watermelon sherbet to soften and fill the center of the pan to form the “meat” of the watermelon. Using an offset spatula or butter knife, smooth the top of the sherbet across the entire surface. Return to freezer to harden.
When ready to serve, run a knife around the edges before removing springform pan. Serve in slices, using a sharp knife to cut through. The slices will look like watermelon wedges!
NOTE: Goldenbrook Watermelon Sherbet has candy “seeds” already in the sherbet. Sometimes I add additional miniature chocolate chips if I want the look of additional seeds.
