This watermelon sorbet tastes like summer camp but way better. 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 feta salad with a fresh, peppery bite or arugula, and one for a sweet watermelon margarita, a twist on a the classic. And then why not learn how to make vodka-infused watermelon?

If you’re just sure you want to make this watermelon sorbet but don’t know what to serve with it, whoa, do we have some ideas for you. How about our easy corn succotash recipe alongside our whole grilled chicken recipe with chipotle
