Simple 2 Ingredient Watermelon Sorbet Print 13 LikeDislike By Linda Cho Nothing feels like summer than noshing on slices of juicy red watermelon. During high stress times, this is what I reach out for. I got through studying for the Bar Exam on an exclusive diet of watermelon . . . and chocolate malt balls! When I was in the hospital or bedridden, watermelon similarly got me through. It is sweet, refreshing and hydrating. And, despite popular belief that watermelon is made up on only water and sugar, watermelon is actually considered a nutrient dense food. It proves a high amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for a low amount of calories. Lycopene (similar to those found in tomatoes), choline and other vitamins aid in heart health, is anti-inflammatory, protects against chronic inflammation, helps prevent bone loss, aides in digestion and of course, keeps you easily hydrated.I love this recipe because as a family of three, we find it hard to finish a whole watermelon. But now, we eat half and freeze the other half for sorbet or watermelon juice. You can add your choice of sweetener but I find that sticking with really red watermelons is sweet enough.
