Homemade Honeydew Sorbet Recipe


This honeydew sorbet is unique in that it not only cools you off from the summer heat, but it's also way more healthy than most alternatives. It isn't packed with excessive amounts of sugar, and yet it's full of flavor and features a pleasant texture. Perhaps best of all, it's also really easy to make!

The sorbet will be crumbly at first, but keep blending until a smooth texture is formed. Add an additional 1-2 tbs water if needed to encourage blending.

Step 4

If the sorbet is firm enough, enjoy right away. If it is too soft to scoop, simply transfer to a sealable container and freeze for about 2-3 hours, or until desired texture is achieved. Serves 4-6 people.
