Watermelon Sorbet Recipe

June 16, 2013

Happy Father’s Day to all your dads out there! My daughter, Leigh, wanted to make something special for Father’s Day for her dad and mine, so she suggested a Watermelon Sorbet recipe perfect for this time of year. She went searching for a way to make sorbet without an ice cream maker (since we don’t have one). She adapted this recipe from Taste of Home, and this 4 ingredient recipe came out fabulous!  All of you dads (moms and kids too) are going to love it! This makes a great dessert recipe to serve for Fourth of July, Labor Day and all summer long. Enjoy and cheers to a great week ahead!

Watermelon Sorbet
