Grapefruit Sorbet Recipe

Grapefruit Sorbet Recipe

There’s no denying that I like frozen treats. Ice cream, sorbet, yogurt, gelato … I do not discriminate. I like it all. But lately, I’ve kept my eyes peeled for Grapefruit Sorbet Recipe. It’s popped up here and there, and every time it does I order it. It’s such a clean, and refreshing treat–perkiness on a spoon if you ask me. Last year I made a Grapefruit and Lime Sorbet which is tasty too but the simplicity of just the grapefruit is just as nice.

Sorbet is easy enough to make, and requires very little in the way of ingredients. Mix up a base in no time, chill for a while in the fridge, and churn away. Then a few hours in the freezer will help it firm up nicely. The flavors of this sorbet are so pure, intense even, you really don’t need much to satisfy.

Enjoy!

Please share any sorbet combos you’ve tried lately. I have pencil and paper ready to take note.

Hugs to ya!

    This looks incredibly refreshing. I’ve just recently started toying around with grapefruit after years of claiming that I didn’t like it. This looks like the perfect way to put them to use.

    This looks really refreshing! I bought a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker (found one for a huge deal!) on Friday and have already made a batch of Oreo Ice Cream. I’m going to be hitting the food store for some more grapefruit to make this sorbet!! :) Thanks.

    My son loves grapefruit. I’m thinking I might win “Favorite Mom” award if I prepare this for him.

    I don’t think I’ve told you yet, but I love your new look here.

    This sounds so refreshing, Amy. I love the ease of sorbet. My two favorite combinations lately are Strawberry & Lime and Watermelon Mojito (watermelon, lime, mint, rum).

    This looks delicious. I am overdue on pulling out the ice cream machine. I always love the flavor of grapefruit, but finding recipes that use it is unusual. So thank you!

    It has been so hot here lately. A frozen sorbet like this one would do just the trick to cool me off! I have a strawberry mint sorbet recipe I make all the time. So yummy!

    My homemade Grapefruit is my favorite. I always want to experiment & put a little vodka in, Frozen Greyhound.
    Also, Cranberry sorbet is a delight.

    This looked like a recipe I was ready to try, as I have all the ingredients ready to go, but it says to add the zest in steps two AND three and never says when to add the grapefruit juice. Editing help required!

    The 1929 Ruby Red patent was associated with real commercial success, which came after the discovery of a red grapefruit growing on a pink variety. Only with the introduction of the Ruby Red did the grapefruit transform into a real agricultural success.;
