"Watermelon" Sherbet Dessert


This conceptual watermelon sherbet confection is so fun, easy, and refreshing for the summer.  It's my kind of dessert in the summer, just three ingredients and no baking.  It's just lime and raspberry sherbet with chocolate chips for the seeds. 


Serve it in any clear glassware and it will be the hit of your summer table.  I found the greeen stemware at the Dollar Store last year.

I served it on this Watermelon Tablescape -- the kids and I ate it before dinner ;)...dessert first please.


Whip up some frozen fun today.


Thanks for dropping by my Red Couch where you are always welcome.

I was waiting for this! It's right up my alley in level of difficulty, too.

And I think it's a great excuse to use some wonderful green sherbet dishes I have, too.

Yum!
