Peach & Honey Sorbet

Though it doesn't have any fat, this sorbet tastes rich and intensely peachy. It is simple to make and will keep for weeks in the freezer.

3 cups
Nutrition Profile:


  • 2 pounds ripe peaches

  • 5 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract

  • cup mild-flavored honey

  • Mint leaves for garnish


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and blanch peaches for 20 seconds. Drain, refresh with cold water and remove the skins. Pit and place in a blender or food processor, along with lemon juice and almond extract. Blend to a puree for about 1 minute and set aside in the refrigerator.

  2. Combine 1 cup water and honey in a large saucepan at least twice their volume (the honey will bubble up dramatically), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

  3. Blend together the honey syrup and the peach puree. Transfer to an ice-cream maker or sorbettier and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

  4. Transfer sherbet to individual serving dishes or an attractive bowl, cover with plastic then tightly with foil (if foil is in direct contact with the fruit, the aluminum will react with the acid in the fruit). Work quickly to cover and return to the freezer before the mixture melts to a liquid, or ice crystals will form when it freezes. About half an hour before serving, place the sherbet in the refrigerator to soften. Unmold and serve in individual bowls, garnished with mint leaves.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
