Fresh Lemon Sorbet Recipe

Escaping the summer heat is no easy task, but this fresh lemon sorbet might just help. It's full of lemon flavor, including zest and juice. You only need three ingredients to make it! 

This sorbet is very smooth and intense with lemon flavor. If you have organic lemons then you are already at an advantage. If you use regular ones, first clean the lemon rind under hot water, and then zest it.

The ingredients are:
450 ml (1-3/4 cup) water
300 gr (1-1/2 cup) sugar
450 ml
(1-3/4 cup) fresh lemon juice incl the zest of the lemons you use

Measure out your ingredients first.



I use the zest of all the lemons I need to come up with the amount of juice I need. If you find that too intense (and it sure is) you cut back on it.


Dissolve the sugar in the water, until the water is clear. No need to let it come to a boil, you just want it dissolved not a caramel.


Combine the zest, lemon juice and the warm sugar and water mixture.


Let it cool down. Refrigerate it over night (including the inside of your ice cream maker).




The next day, pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and freeze it according to manufacturers instructions.

Tip if you don't have an Ice Cream maker: If you don't have an Ice Cream Maker don't be alarmed. You can make this without one (even though It won't taste quite the same). The trick is, once you pour the mixture into the airtight container in the end, take it out of the freezer every 30 minutes for the next 5-6 hours and give it a good stir. That way you'll get rid of the ice crystals that stop the sorbet from being more slushy like.




After the ice cream maker churns the sorbet, put it into a air tight container and freeze more, since the consistency will be better then. This can take 1-2 hours.


Serve it up an enjoy!



I hope this recipe will help you in the coming summer months. Mostar is already very hot and we are looking for lots of ways to cool us down. Enjoy!

    1. Izuzev šećera (koji se može smanjiti, ali ova mjera je taman za skoro pola litre limunovog soka) stvarno nema nikakvih kalorija i sl.

    1. This really is refreshing and you can make it with any fresh fruit juice. Just adjust the sugar with sweeter fruit.
