Summertime is here, and in full effect!  Lately it has been warm and humid, and while I LOVE the heat, I definitely prefer it to be dry.  I shouldn't be complaining at all (sorry East Coast friends!), but it really is quite abnormal for my little Southern California beach town to be experiencing this type of weather.

So, because it has been so warm, I have had cold, icy treats on my mind.  I've also been on a watermelon roll lately, so I decided to make some sorbet out of some...with a kick!

Watermelon + Lime Sorbet

1/2 a watermelon 1 c. lime juice (about 5 limes)

Start by hollowing out the watermelon, and placing all the insides in a blender.  You're going to want to keep the rind in tact, so be sure to not dig too deep.

Juice limes, and add to blender.  Blend everything together, and pour into the hollowed out rind. I placed my watermelon in a medium-sized bowl to keep it steady, but this is totally optional. Cover with plastic wrap, and place in freezer for at minimum 8 hours (there is a lot of liquid to freeze).

*If your watermelon isn't very sweet, you can always add simple syrup to taste (1 part water to 1 part sugar.  Boil until sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and cool).

Super easy-peasy, and absolutely delicious.  It has the right amount of sweetness and tang, which is perfectly refreshing for a warm day.  Yummy!  Enjoy!
