Watermelon The Superfruit!
Not only does watermelon help keep you hydrated it is rich in vitamins A, B6 and C, contains an amino acid called citrulline that may help move blood through your body and lower your blood pressure. The cheery red color comes from lycopene, an antioxidant. Watermelon has more of this nutrient than any other fruit or veggie — even tomatoes. And it’s also a low calorie sweet treat!
As we move into watermelon season there are an abundant amount of recipes available. Here is an easy one that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. While most sorbet recipes have you make a simple syrup to mix with the fruit that can take extra time to cool down before adding and the puree can chunk up when freezing. I found this recipe that take the common sense approach of freezing the watermelon in cubes before using, GENIUS!
