Simple & Refreshing Watermelon Sorbet Recipe

If you are looking for a simple and refreshing watermelon sorbet recipe, this one is delicious.  Watermelon is one of the most refreshing fruits, and especially in warm weather. So to use real watermelon, and turn it into icy cold sorbet, is the best of all worlds for summer treats. The best part is that it does not take long to make. Most of the work is done in the freezer, chilling. It is a great alternative to making ice cream, not only because it is so simple, but because you get all that great fruit in it too. You can try this with strawberries and other fruits as well, but we love this watermelon sorbet for hot summer days especially.

Another thing we love about this recipe, is that it only requires 4 ingredients, and one of those is water! So it is pretty simple, and definitely cost effective to make. You do not need any kind of fancy ice cream maker for this recipe either, which is a big plus.

If you are looking for ideas on what you can do with watermelon, beyond serving it sliced, this is a great recipe to try.

  1. I just pureed this all together, using lemon juice as I’m out of limes. The puree tastes great, can’t wait to try it after it’s frozen!
