Low Sugar Watermelon Mint Sorbet

Low Sugar Watermelon Mint Sorbet

I realize the neighborhood Ice Cream truck is a rite of summer, but when our local fella blasts by with his speakers blaring at 4:30p every afternoon to ply the kids with sugar and treats, I object.

In addition to complaining :), I've taken measures into hand and have created my own sweet treat to keep the kids happy and refreshed this summer with a low sugar watermelon mint sorbet that's juicy, just sweet enough and tasty to fend of Mr. Ice Cream himself.

Serve this low sugar watermelon mint sorbet in margarita glasses for fun that kids will love. Add a mint sprig or maraschino cherry too.
