Green Grape Sorbet

Green Grape Sorbet with fresh mint and lime

All I can say is… YUM!  

This is probably the most refreshing sorbet I have ever tasted. The addition of fresh mint and a splash of lime marries all the flavors together creating an end result that is the best (and healthiest) dessert you can serve your family right now.

Serve it in a bowl or scoop it into a cone, either way you and yours are going to love enjoying this smooth treat on a cool summer evening.  

We start with fresh green grapes (I purchased mine from Fresno State’s local market where they grow those puppies right there!) and puree it with the mint and limes. I love seeing the flecks of mint leaf and the small bits of grape still visible in the sorbet.

Get ’em while the getting’ is good!  

 

California grapes will be gone before you know it and then your ability to make this outstanding treat dwindles. I would be sad if you didn’t at least try it once…

As you can see in the above photo, the best way to spot fresh, worthy grapes is by bending the stem around your finger. If the stem is flexible and bends without snapping, you are good to go! But if your stem breaks, you know that the grapes are not fresh or possibly not from our country. All qualities that I do not recommend!

Fill a freezer-friendly container and allow to harden up for at least 4 hours before serving.

Scoop away!

Sorbet is naturally softer than traditional ice cream, so the scooping is much easier.

So the only question is:

Bowl….
