Watermelon Sorbet

We had about half a watermelon left that I knew we needed to use up. It wasn't the sweetest watermelon so I figured I might try to use it in a recipe some how. I decided to throw together this quick and easy recipe, that is so refreshing and perfect for the blisteringly hot and muggy weather we have been having.

All you need;

4-5 cups seedless watermelon
Juice of 1 lime
Dash of salt
1/4 cup of sugar

Throw all above ingredients into blender, and blend until pureed. 

If you don't have an ice cream maker, get one! Honestly, I think it's a must have kitchen appliance. We have a rather old Cuisinart ice cream maker. Still works great! I just throw it in and it was ready in about 25 minutes. 

If you don't have an ice cream maker just throw it in the freezer until it's a more slushy consistency. Or blend ice in with all the ingredients. 

This recipe is very flexible. If you have a sweet tooth you can totally add more sugar (one recipe I came across called for 1 cup of sugar!) But I prefer the raw watermelon flavor, and the lime added a nice tartness to it. 

So easy! I certainly need to make more treats like this for summer!
