Fresh watermelon and mint are combined with lemon lime soda and poured over lime sherbet in this delicious sherbet float recipe, perfect for summer!
Did you know that August 3rd is National Watermelon Day? I know, I know, who comes up with these national food holidays? My boyfriend (and I’m sure a few other people) think they’re totally ridiculous, but as a foodie, I love any excuse to celebrate my favorite foods like National Ice Cream Day. Yes, please!
As I was preparing for National Watermelon Day, (yes, I prepare for national food holidays #FoodBloggerLife 😉 ) I realized that I had a delicious watermelon cocktail to share, hello Watermelon Jalapeno Mojitos and a scrumptious entree, give me all the Watermelon Serrano Salsa on top of Chorizo Tostadas, but no watermelon dessert!
I had to remedy this situation immediately. Enter the Watermelon Lime Sherbet Float, AKA the most perfect summer twist on an ice cream float ever!
- 3 cups fresh watermelon cubes
- 2 tbsp fresh mint
- 1 liter lemon lime soda
- 1.5 quart lime sherbet
Add the watermelon and mint to a blender.
Blend until smooth, then transfer to a large pitcher. Add the lemon lime soda to the pitcher slowly.
Add a scoop of sherbet to a Half Pint Mason Jar or small bowl. Pour the watermelon soda over the sherbet and serve.
Serve with small spoons, decorative straws and a watermelon, mint garnish, if you’re fancy like that! 😉
This sherbet float recipe is light, flavorful and such a simple dessert for summer beach parties, BBQs or a refreshing evening treat!
