IN A NUTSHELL
This watermelon sorbet is dead easy and quick to prepare and super refreshing on those impossibly hot days. It is dairy, sugar, gluten and all-usual-suspects free and if you prep the watermelon ahead you can make it in under 5 minutes and enjoy it all summer!

I had already tried many ‘express’ home made ice-creams and sorbets, but I have to admit I had never made one so incredibly simple and well...cold. In fact, I had never eaten or drunk anything as cold as this watermelon sorbet. It is so refreshing I have a hard time thinking of something better for a hot day. Watermelon is high in electrolytes that keep you well hydrated and it is also one of the most alkalizing foods. Besides being good for your health, it tastes exquisite! I just love it. Since I tried this recipe, I always have a container filled with watermelon pieces in the freezer, so that I can turn them into a sorbet in no time at all :) I hope you love it as much as we do and if you try it at home please let us know how it turned out by leaving a comment below or post a picture of your pink treat on Instagram and tag it #diospirorecipes. We’d love to see how you’re keeping refreshed!
