Directions

  1. Puree the watermelon chunks in a blender or food processor until smooth; strain the juices from any remaining solids and set aside, discarding the solids.
  2. Heat 1 cup of heavy cream with the sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat until warmed. Stir the mint leaves to the warmed cream. Cover the saucepan and remove from heat. Allow the mixture to steep at room temperature for 1 hour. Strain into a bowl; discard the mint leaves.
  3. Whisk the egg yolks in a bowl until gently beaten. Slowly pour the mint-infused cream into the egg yolks, whisking constantly to prevent cooking the egg; scrape the mixture back into the saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir constantly, scraping the bottom while cooking, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula; pour the mixture through a strainer into a bowl along with 1 cup heavy cream. Mix the watermelon juice into the cream mixture.
  4. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

Wonderful! I was looking for a good recipe for either sherbet or *(preferrably) ice cream involving mint and watermelon! Hooray! This is very thought-out and mistake-proof! Thank-you so much! :D

It tastes ok. I personally don't care for the combination of mint and watermelon taste, but when I made it, it came out almost icey after being frozen. It wasn't so much of hit either with my father who is a watermelon fanatic. However, I may have made it wrong, but it was fun to see it come out red and to put in chocolate chips to make it look further like watermelon.

Watermelon and mint - two of my favorite things together in this refreshing, unique recipe. I love the fact that this ice cream is naturally infused with mint - to smell it was heavenly; I'll definitely use that technique for future mint ice creams. And because I believe chocolate makes everything better, I added in some mini morsels toward the end. Next time I'll use full-sized chips. Yum. Don't do like I did and use half and half in order to save a few calories; it was a little icy. Next time, I'll definitely go with the full on cream. Also, I think I overfilled my machine. The next day when I was making the leftover mix, that batch was much creamier.
