Best yet, you don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this sorbet. Keep reading to get the recipe for this easy peasy watermelon sorbet>>

True fact: I’m actually not much of a watermelon fan. I like the taste okay but it’s the texture that gets me. Just not a fan. This watermelon sorbet though? I am ALL here for it. We had some leftover watermelon chunks from a BBQ and I wasn’t going to eat them as is (sorry watermelon lovers!) so I thought ‘hey, why don’t I try making a sorbet with them?’ The recipe is insanely easy– you can have this whipped up in no time– even sooner if you have an ice cream maker (I use this one), but if not, you can still enjoy this icy goodness. 

While I topped with mint, his watermelon sorbet would also be amazing served with a balsamic syrup/glaze and ribbons of basil– yum!
