Grapefruit and Lime Sorbet

Refreshing Grapefruit and Lime Sorbet

Summer screams for frozen treats. It does. I can hear it. Don’t you? And not only are ice creams and other frozen treats tasty, but they’re usually pretty doggone simple.

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a grapefruit and lime sorbet. I really enjoy the combo of the freshness of grapefruit, and the perkiness of the lime. The lime balances a little of the bitterness of the grapefruit (or whatever that flavor is that you generally get as an aftertaste with grapefruit).

I’ll warn you, this grapefruit and lime sorbet is very sweet, and very addicting. But it’s delightful.

It is.

I’m not joking.

No kidding here.

No foolin’ either.

Try it.

Soon.

To get started, you’ll need sugar, water, grapefruits and limes. No funky preservatives, no artificial colorings, just yummy, sweet, tasty stuff.

The process is easy too. Begin by pouring the sugar and water into a sauce pan, then bring it to a simmer for just a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. While the sugar/water (it’s a simple syrup really) is cooling, zest and juice the grapefruits and lime(s). Once the sugar/water has cooled (be sure to let it cool completely), combine it with the zest and juice, and pour mixture into an ice cream freezer.
