Introduction: Lemony Watermelon Sorbet

Watermelon sorbet is an incredibly refreshing icy dessert made out of just 3 ingredients.
It is fruity, fresh, light, sweet and just so easy to make.. :) This sorbet is the perfect treat for a hot summer's day !
Sorbet is the French equivalent of British Ice water and is a semi-frozen sugar syrup flavored with fruit puree.

Watermelon is my favorite summertime fruit and so i decided to make a lemony watermelon sorbet for this weekend. :D

    Where do you find agave nectar?

    faiza007 (author)laffinm2014-05-26

    I found mine at a supermarket...under the honey and dressings section.
    If you are unable to find one..you can substitute it with honey for this recipe..it won't make a difference. :)

    You will likely find it next to the jars / bottles of honey, if your store carries it.
