Lemon Sorbet Recipe

Lemon Sorbet Recipe - Light and Refreshing

We make this lemon sorbet recipe from our own lemons... of course any type of lemon will be fine!
Also known in the Mediterranean as Sorbete, Granita and Granizada,
it is light, refreshing and absolutely delicious. Even better it is amazingly quick and easy to make.
You just have to wait until it freezes.
Like all ices, it's a great emergency dessert - just sitting in the freezer until you need it.
Great for cooling down on a hot day...it gets well into the 90ºs here on the Costa Del Sol during full Summer.

Lemon Sorbet Recipe Ingredients
  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • 300ml Water
  • Finely Grated Rind of 2 lemons
  • 300ml Lemon Juice (About 6 Lemons)
  • 50ml Limoncello Liquer (For Adult Diners Only, otherwise omit)

New Feature: Printer Friendly Recipe Pages for your convenience.


  1. Put the Caster Sugar and Water, and Lemon rind into a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until all of the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Bring to the boil and boil steadily for 5 minutes without stirring.
  3. Leave to cool and stir in the lemon juice and limoncello.
  4. Chill in the fridge.
  5. This recipe is so much easier if you have an ice cream maker, just pour the mixture in and churn until it has reached the correct consistency. 
  6. If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour the lemon mixture into a shallow plastic container and put it in the freezer. Every hour give the mixture a good stir. Keep doing this and eventually your sorbet will form. If it freezes too hard tip it into a mixing bowl and beat it with an electric mixer, or whizz it in a food processor.
  7. Then spoon it into a suitable lidded container and freeze.
  8. Bring out of the freezer 15 mins before serving and it will be easier to scoop.
