A genius recipe for how to make lemon blueberry sorbet without an ice cream maker. The perfect healthy treat for summer!
Hello there, friends! I wanted to share a DELICIOUS blueberry sorbet recipe with you that has seen so many changes and variations in our home over the past few years.
You see…it started as a lemon sorbet. Yum? Yes, but needed something more…
So I added fresh blueberries.
And then I froze them!
Is Lemon Blueberry Sorbet Healthy?
Then, I started thinking of all the ways I could make this simple recipe a healthy one, too. So I removed the granulated sugar and used honey. Then I changed that to raw honey – and less of it (because, you know, that whole sugar thing I talk about).
Then, I blended it.
With each new variation, this blueberry sorbet recipe just got better and better.
Not only is this blueberry sorbet light, fresh and healthy, it’s also low-sugar and full of antioxidants from the blueberries.
How Long Does it Take to Freeze Lemon Blueberry Sorbet?
Oh — and, did I mention this lemon blueberry sorbet is incredibly easy to make, too? Just freeze the blueberries for 4-5 hours, or overnight, and you’re practically there. Then, when I’m ready to make the blueberry sorbet, I use my I use my trusty food processor (because I’m totes in love), but you could also use a heavy-duty kitchen blender.
Taste and serve immediately or you could freeze for an hour or so to get a harder consistency.
Seriously. It’s that easy.
Try it out soon and have a cold, sweet, and healthy treat this summer.
