I put them on a plate and into the freezer for a couple of hours. Once they were froze, I put them in a freezer bag as well. And you only need to move them around gently in the bag, if a few of them get stuck together. I was surprised at how easy they were to take apart.
I took 5 cups of watermelon, 1 Tbsp of unpasteurized local honey, and about 1-2 Tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice. Put everything into the blender, and blend until there are no chunks left. You will literally have watermelon juice. I tasted it at this step, and I could definitely drink it just like that! But, I put it all in a container, closed the lid, and sent it to the freezer overnight.
When you scoop it out, it has the texture of a snow cone (if you know what that is, depending on what part of the world you are in), or a slushy. Here, I served it to Ashton in a bowl, but it melted into complete juice in about 10 minutes because he took too long to eat it. So next time, I'm going to "shave" the sorbet into a glass and serve it with a straw for a healthy slushy!
Note: If you store either the watermelon balls and the watermelon sorbet in a deep freezer, it might be too hard to serve right away. I had to leave my sorbet on the counter for about 15 minutes to be able to scoop it out.
Those watermelon treats are just as fun to make as they are to eat!
