It’s summertime and all I want to eat is watermelon and all the berries! This Healthy Watermelon Sorbet is the perfect treat for the hotter temps, made with good for you ingredients that will actually hydrate you. The texture is smooth, a little creamy–something in between an icy and an ice cream, if that makes sense. The best part is it’s super easy to make, requires no churning whatsoever, and is super duper allergy friendly!

Healthy Watermelon Sorbet

This Healthy Watermelon Sorbet is: vegan / gluten-free / refined sugar free / whole food plant based / dairy free / nut free / paleo / raw vegan / fruitarian / fat free. That’s a lot of things, huh?

You can also make it without any added sugars, so long as you’re using the fruit at it’s absolute peak ripeness. So what’s in it? Basically just whole plants.

You can make this healthy watermelon sorbet with either 3 or 4 ingredients! The main ingredient is watermelon of course, and for the creaminess and sweetness, we’re adding a little banana (but not too much, so you won’t really taste it!). I always love to pair my watermelon with lime, and I’ll list a few other delicious add-ons in the recipe card below. Finally, if you’re needing a little extra sweetness, you can add a touch of maple syrup, but personally, I find it to be unnecessary as long as my fruit is ripe to start with.

I recommend making this in a high speed, high power blender, because we will be freezing the fruit beforehand. I use this blender, which also has a large enough pitcher to make it all in one shot. I find using a tamper helps to push down the frozen chunks to blend easily. Feel free to divide or multiply the recipe as needed, because I guarantee this healthy watermelon sorbet doesn’t last long in the freezer once you try it!

A note on texture. Since we are not adding any fat to this recipe, it might feel a little icier at first. My best tip for good texture is to use the exact ratio of banana to watermelon, blend the fruit in its frozen state, and enjoy just as it reaches frozen if you can. Before eating, give it a few minutes to thaw out a little so you can scoop it with an ice cream scoop! If you don’t mind a banana flavour, then you can also add more banana than the recipe calls for, which will create a creamier texture. I prefer not to exceed the listed amount just because I find that the banana flavour can overtake the watermelon if too much is added.

  3. Cara Milam says:
    I had a really hard time blending this and am wondering if there’s a trick. My blender was so full I had to take a bunch out, and then the blades would just spin without blending anything. And I have a nice ninja blender. I felt like it would have blended with more liquid but the recipe specifically says don’t add liquid. I would love tips if you have them!
    • Remy says:
      I would recommend using a tamper, I linked one for the vitamix model in the recipe :) it needs to be broken down with extra movement otherwise it doesn't hit the blades. Hope that helps!
