Summer may be winding down but that doesn't mean we can't take advantage of the last of the summer flavors!

Sorbet is so easy to make - with or without an ice cream maker. For a smoother sorbet, I'd definitely recommend using the ice cream machine but if you prefer sorbet with texture, go ahead and straight up freeze it! No ice cream maker required.

This sorbet is made from frozen watermelon and strawberries from earlier in the season when they were at their peak flavor.

Sweetened with simple syrup and a hint of lime throughout, this sorbet will make you wish summer was just starting instead of ending.

Plus, it's almost somewhat healthy for you too. Leave out the sugar simple syrup for a low sugar option!

Not only does it taste great, it looks SO PRETTY too!
