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.

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.

    Do you know how difficult it was to allow this to freeze into a sorbet? I managed and it was delicious. We are going to double the recipe next time so we can have one serving each :o)

    1. Hi Harry,

      I know what you mean! The “juice” tastes so good, I could drink it.

      The recipe definitely doubles well so making more won’t be a problem.

      I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe, thank you so much for taking the time to let me know.
