Zesty Lime & Basil Sorbet

The Recipe

Need something refreshing on a hot summers day? Feel like some ice cream, but don't want all the calories and sugar? Look no further, this tasty and refreshing sorbet will do just the trick.


- Prep: Place a metal bowl in the freezer for at least ten minutes before starting. I use a basic thin stainless steel mixing bowl.
- First you blend the base ingredients in your blender. A high speed blender will make this process a lot easier – like a vitamix
- Do a taste test and check the flavor. You can add more lime juice, basil, banana, sweetener or ice as needed
- Grab your chilled metal bowl and pour in the frosty mixture. Place it in the freezer and in about 20 minutes your sorbet will be ready to soft serve scoop! You really don’t want this mixture over-freezing because then the soft-serve effect will be lost. The soft serve freezing process leaves you with a velvety sorbet that is somewhere in between a true sorbet and a sippable slushee or smoothie

You can either serve all at once or store in the freezer. You can then re-use this base as a perfect addition to blended frosty drinks.
