Watermelon Kiwi Sorbet

If you guys haven’t noticed yet, it has been a very hot summer! Time to bring in some refreshing recipes to our tables! I just made a delicious all-natural Watermelon Kiwi Sorbet with mint– doesn’t it just make you want to say “ahhh”?

I recently wrote an article about mint and some unexpected health benefits it has. Mint has vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, and vitamin A. While mint alone is great as a flavor enhancer, adding it to other fruits can create an explosion of fresh new flavors!

My grandfather clearly knows my obsession with healthy foods, so every now and then he brings me different fruits. The other day he brought me a huge juicy watermelon for me to devour! But I thought of you guys first– good thinking right? I also had some kiwis lying around, which I thought would make the perfect summer pairing.

Something magical happens when watermelons and kiwis join forces. Not only are they full of antioxidants, they are super hydrating. Add some mint and you get the taste of summer!
