Two ingredients make this Watermelon Lime Sorbet, an easy and healthy treat that everyone will love – vegan, paleo, dairy free, gluten free, and sweetener free!
It is officially hot here. I looked at the forecast on my phone the other day and it said 100+ degrees for the next week. I think it is supposed to hit 107 one day. Thank goodness for air conditioning. True story – my parents still don’t have AC. They live outside Philly, but it still gets hot there.
One thing that people always think of in the summertime is watermelon. I was never a huge fan of watermelon growing up. Honestly I think it was because my mom never bought it because she doesn’t really like it that much. So we never really had it in our house. I also didn’t like watermelon flavored things – candies, water ice, popsicles… – they were always too sweet or artificial tasting to me.
Micheal on the other hand is a huge fan of it. I think it might be his favorite fruit, at least he acts like it when we have one. The kid eats it up. Buying it for him has turned me into a pretty big watermelon lover. Especially if you get lucky with a really sweet one, it’s so good. It has a pretty good nutritional profile as well (find out more here) for being mostly water.
This watermelon lime sorbet is so simple to make. It only takes 2 ingredients and a little patience. The watermelon is frozen to make ice like consistency, leaving out the artificial flavorings. I added some lime for a little kick and to help the blending process. You will need a high powered blender (I love my Vitamix!) or food processor. You can also just wait for the frozen watermelon to thaw a little for an easier blending process.
If you are waiting for them to thaw some and you try one, be warned – frozen watermelon is addicting. Since making this recipe a few times, it has become one of my favorite snacks. I bought a huge watermelon the other day, cut it up, and froze half of it just for snacking.
