Mixed melon and lime sorbet

I’ve been obsessed with banana ice cream for ages now, and have somehow gotten it into my mind that when making “ice cream” out of frozen fruit youΒ need banana. Now that kinda caused a problem when I started really focusing on only buying local produce… the problem being: I NEED BANANA ICE CREAM BUT THEY DON’T GROW IN SWITZERLAND GUESS I HAVE TO PACK UP AND MOVE TO HONDURAS?! Well, turns out that instead of transferring to Honduras, you can pretty much chuck any old frozen fruit in the food processor and the outcome will be sorbet. Obviously it’s naturally not as creamy, but hey, as long as it tastes as good I’m down. This mix is SO refreshing for summer, and not as heavy as your classic banana ice cream. It’s the perfect way to use up all those in-season melons that you’ve totally been stocking in the freezer as per my suggestion πŸ˜‰Β
