What Is Sorbet?
Sorbet is a frozen dessert typically made from sugar-sweetened liquid, such as fruit juice or wine and often puréed fruit. There are no eggs or no dairy found in sorbets.
In addition to being a dessert, a sorbet can also be served as a palate cleanser between meals.
See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.
- water (optional)
How To Make Sorbet
Puree watermelon, strawberries and honey in a blender and then pour the juice into a small dish and place it in the freezer.
Tips For Making Sorbet
- You don't really have to use honey in this recipe if you don't want to but I find that when you puree and freeze fruit, it tastes less sweet than it would if you eat it unfrozen. You don't need to add much, just about 1/4 cup of honey is perfect.
- Depending on the blender you use, you might find you need to add a little water to help the fruit puree. I use a Vitamix and don't really need to add any but when I'm making this sorbet in my other blender, I find a few tablespoons of water seems to be enough to get the fruits blended.
- As for the dish I use for this dessert, I use the 5-inch baking dish I use in so many of my recipes for one. Feel free to use any freezer safe dish that will hold the juices.
