Refreshing Lemon Sorbet

An easy 3 ingredient lemon sorbet that’s perfect for dessert, in between courses or just a light pick me up for your hectic day.

Lemon sorbet is one of my favorite refreshers in the summertime. I love it’s tart taste and how it makes my mouth pucker. And the cold of it’s creamy iciness is the perfect foil to that relentless Texas sun.

This lemon sorbet is ridiculously easy to make too. You only need 3 ingredients to make this luscious treat. I also used an ice cream maker for this sorbet, but you could make it into a granita by using a pan and a fork. Either way you’re going to love this recipe.

I wrote up this recipe for my book Frozen Paleo. The book contains 50 recipes of, you guessed it, frozen paleo treats. You might want to check it out since there’s a lot more days of summer left to enjoy the frozen yumminess.

Yes, this post is unusually short, but the days are hot and my attention span is short. So make up a batch of this sorbet and kick off your shoes and enjoy it.
