Ingredients

  • sliced ripe peaches – you can use fresh peaches or frozen peaches for this recipe. We recommend removing the peel but it isn’t required. Learn how to freeze peaches to preserve them at the height of their ripeness.
  • sugar – we use both coconut sugar and organic cane sugar as a sweetener.  After putting it to the test, we found that the coconut sugar adds a caramelly taste to the sorbet whereas the plain cane sugar will have more of a neutral sweetness making the sorbet taste more peachy. Both work well, it is just a flavor preference.
    You also can swap the sugar with honey or maple syrup to create a more natural and healthier sorbet. After putting it to the test, the only drawback with using honey or syrup is that the end result is less creamy and more icy. It is still delicious, and much more nutritious, but more of a frosted texture instead of a smooth one.
  • fresh lemon juice – the acidity in lemon juice helps to balance the sweetness.

Step 3

Keep processing the ingredients until it is a smooth texture with a consistency similar to soft-serve ice cream. This takes about 2-3 minutes.

You may have to stop the processor a couple of times to scrape the sides down.

Expert tip

To achieve the best texture, freeze the peach sorbet in a shallow, airtight container.

This allows for quicker freezing and easier scooping.

Recipe variations

  • Introduce other fruits like raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries to the peach sorbet for a yummy mixed fruit variation.
  • Add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom to the peach puree to create a warm and comforting flavor profile.
  • Blend in almond extract or chopped dry roasted almonds to infuse the sorbet with a nutty undertone that pairs really well with peaches.
  • For an adult twist, incorporate a splash of peach schnapps or bourbon into the sorbet mixture for a spirits-infused dessert experience.

Serving suggestions

  • Garnish the sorbet with fresh mint leaves as pictured to add a pop of color and a hint of herbal freshness.
  • Top the peach sorbet with a dollop of whipped cream to add a creamy and luscious element to the dessert. If you want to stick with a dairy-free recipe try this Coconut Whipped Cream.
  • For a creative twist, place a scoop of peach sorbet in a tall glass and pour sparkling water over top to create a refreshing peach sorbet float.
  • Pair the peach sorbet with some biscotti or shortbread cookies for a crunchy element that complements the smoothness of the creamy sorbet.

    Simplicity at its best! Rich in flavor, super refreshing, and living in the desert it is a plus, and so easy to make. I made my first batch, and it is already gone. Making another one today. Great dessert and a must-try.
