This Creamy Watermelon Sorbet Recipe Has an Unexpected Ingredient [Video]

With just three ingredients, this watermelon sorbet recipe is super simple, healthy, and delicious.

This sorbet tastes like summer camp. Bananas, an unexpected ingredient in sorbet recipes, add creaminess without the extra stickiness of cream or sugar. We also throw in a splash of plant-based milk, so you could even call this a sherbet recipe, if you want! Pack this frozen treat into an insulated container to take it lakeside, or heck, just eat it on the couch. It's great no matter where you are.

Watch the video all the way through to get two extra recipes: one for a refreshing watermelon salad with a fresh, peppery bite, and one for a sweet watermelon twist on a classic margarita.
