Easy Apricot Sorbet Recipe


Easy Apricot Sorbet is a light, refreshing dessert that has minimal ingredients, as well as minimal calories. Its the perfect treat to serve after a summer meal, especially since there is no cooking required and it can be made ahead. This recipe came about when I saw black apricots at my favorite warehouse store; since I hadnt ever tasted the black variety, I bought them, only to find when I got home that they were a bit too ripe. The flavor was delicious, however, so I blended them up, pushed the puree through a fine strainer, and made the pulp into sorbet. The result was a luscious frozen non-dairy concoction, perfect for the 105 weather we were having at the time.

Any kind of ripe apricots can be used in this frozen treat, and since the sweetness of apricots varies, you may need to add a little more sugar. The base can be put together in minimal hands-on time pit the apricots and put them through a food mill, or blend them in the blender or food processor and push them through a fine strainer; either way it takes very little time. Alternately, they can be peeled and mashed, but this method will take a little more time. Stir in some sugar, corn syrup, and frozen orange juice concentrate; chill the mixture until ready to freeze. Its that easy, and oh so good!

8 Servings

4 cups apricot puree
1/2 cup sugar, (add up to 1/4 cup more depending on the sweetness of the puree)
2 tablespoons corn syrup
3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate

  5. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer.
