How to make Melon and Lime Sorbet
This healthy and delicious Melon And Lime Sorbet is the perfect summer dessert. It uses only 3 simple ingredients and is very easy to make.
Summer is upon us, as soon as the temperature rises I start thinking about guilt-free summer treats. As much as I like chocolate, during the summer month I much prefer fruity flavours. Besides being easy to make, Melon and Lime Sorbet is the perfect summer treat because it can be enjoyed by almost everybody. Sorbets are usually dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan-friendly but this one is also refined sugar-free.
Are you sold yet or do I still need to tell you about the refreshing, yet slightly sweet flavour that will be tingling your tongue? I knew I would get you with that.
For those who like to approach things a little more rational let me throw in some nutritional facts as well. But let’s be honest who can think rationally when we are talking about desserts?
Fortunately, in this case, it doesn’t have to be one way or the other, I think I can get away with calling this Melon and Lime Sorbet quite healthy.
