Lime Sorbet Recipe


Lime oil has a bit of natural sweetness in it; that’s why a teaspoon of fresh lime zest is used in this sorbet recipe. Try this for a light dessert or palate cleanser between courses.

Prep Time: 2 hours

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 5 minutes


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest


In medium saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, sugar, and lime juice to a simmer. Cover the pan, lower the heat slightly, and cook for about 3 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool the mixture to room temperature. Stir in the lime zest. Chill the mixture for 2 hours. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
