Honeydew Sorbet

Honeydew SorbetLeaves are changing quickly and every morning it has been getting cooler… I’m so not ready for fall yet! This summer went by so quickly, we didn’t even get to a waterpark!

In a last ditch effort to bring back summer I thought I would make a light, refreshing summer-y dessert 🙂 Ice cream is always a go to during the summer but for those of us who are lactose intolerant, ice cream isn’t always a good idea. Don’t get me wrong, I crave (and eat) ice cream occasionally but its nice to eat dessert without feeling sick or having to run to the bathroom.

My honeydew sorbet is made with 3 ingredients (+ water… does that count?) and can be modified to meet your specific needs.

Honeydew Sorbet
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: ½ gallon
  • 5 C honeydew, diced and chilled
  • ¾ C cane sugar
  • ¾ C water
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  1. Create a simple syrup by heating sugar and water in a sauce pan. Pour the simple syrup in a container and refrigerate to cool. You can freeze to speed up the process - make sure not to freeze the syrup.
  2. Combine the chilled honey dew and simple syrup in a blender, add juice from 1 lemon and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour the contents of the blender into your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer instructions.
  4. Freeze sorbet until solid. Before serving, take sorbet out of the freezer about 5 minutes in advance.

Making sorbet

Fruit – Try using cantaloupe or watermelon to make the same different versions of this sorbet.
Sweetener – you can use honey in place of cane sugar in the same quantity. Be careful if you are sensitive to fructose! Honey is 100% fructose and so is fruit 🙂 You can also try an alternative sweetener (i.e. stevia) for a low calorie version of this refreshing dessert!
