Watermelon Sorbet with Chamoy


If you been at Mexico you will know what does chamoy means. The taste is a little sour, a little sweet, a little spicy (don’t trust on the spicy, I am Mexican). These days Houston has been very hot and it amazing how the mother nature support us in this process. Watermelon is seasonal and gosh it is so fresh specially when I froze it.  So find this easy and delicious recipe for you, your friends, your kids, your kid’s friend… you name it.

Recipe for the Chamoy


  • One cup of hibiscus flowers
  • One cup of dry Apricots
  • One cup of dry prunes
  • The juice of one orange
  • Cayenne
  • Two cups of water



  1. Place in a pan the water, hibiscus flowers, apricots, prunes. Heat for 10 minutes and remove from the stove.
  2. Blend the hibiscus flowers, apricots and prunes with half of the water you use to “cook” the ingredients. Be careful of not adding too much water.
  3. Place the mixture in a container and add the juice of the orange and cayenne. Some recipes suggested to add sugar and the juice of one lemon at this moment. In my experience, I didn’t need them.
