Nutrition per serving may change if servings are adjusted.
1½ cups water
⅔ cup sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 pound fresh peaches or nectarines, halved and pitted
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
6 tablespoons lime juice
¼ teaspoon salt
Stir water, sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Add peaches (or nectarines); bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Pour the fruit-syrup mixture into a blender. Add lime zest, juice and salt; blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate until cold, 4 hours or overnight.
Freeze the sorbet mixture in an ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer's directions. (Alternatively, pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid, about 4 hours. Unmold cubes, place half in a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and process, scraping the sides as necessary, until fairly smooth but still icy. Repeat with the remaining cubes.)
Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in a resealable plastic container for up to 1 week.

Bad for blood sugar even in a healthy person
How about adding Stevia or Truvia instead of the sugar and light corn syrup? I did!
Cons: I see nothing healthy about 2/3 cups of sugar and the adding 2 tablesoons of light corn syup.

If you're looking for a light, healthy dessert, this is definitely it. I have made this dessert a couple years now and am totally satisfied with the end result. I also choose this recipe over others because it only calls for a few ingredients instead of the whole kitchen pantry.
Pros: healthy, simple
