This tart, refreshing sorbet makes an elegant end to a summer meal. Always smell peaches before you buy them to make sure they're sweet and ready to eat.

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2/3 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
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

delicious, fruity 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
