Deep purple blueberries combined with fresh ginger make this blueberry sorbet recipe beautiful and zingy. And, as a bonus, the blueberries deliver a punch of antioxidants and are a great source of Vitamin K.

  • 4 cups blueberries (about 1 1/4 pounds), fresh or frozen (see Tips)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Puree blueberries in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Combine water, lemon juice, ginger and water in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Stir the syrup into the fruit puree. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until cold, about 4 hours.
  4. Pour the sorbet mixture into an ice cream maker. (No ice cream maker? See Tips.) Freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Let soften slightly before serving.
  • Tips: If using frozen fruit, measure it frozen and then thaw before pureeing.
  • If you don't have an ice cream maker, freeze the mixture in a shallow metal cake pan or ice cube trays until solid, about 6 hours. Break into chunks and process in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
