Today the hot weather set me thinking what should be presented to my readers and boom came the idea of sharing chilled dessert dish, so what can be better than doing sorbet recipes. So here comes the very first one – the melon sorbet, to beat the heat and feel good. Gear up as you are going to get quite a few ones today. They are super easy to do and utterly delicious to eat.

When you buy melons, sometimes you get the yellow ones and sometimes green ones when cut, so thought of using both color melons and making the sorbet. The sorbet can be done in ice cream maker or without it too. I saw this recipe & tweaked a bit but it really came out nice, all you need to do is to first freeze melon peices and blend together with sugar syrup & freeze again, the result is amazing & truly delicious, so try this!
