Coconut lime sorbet

Seeing as how the weather is unseasonably warm (the hottest 12 months in recorded Brisbane weather) I decided to try a refreshing sorbet.  I checked out the Web for some ideas and found this recipe by Ellen from the Orange and Cardamom blog.
I made a few slight changes;  I boiled the sugar and water for a few minutes after the sugar was dissolved to get a thicker syrup,  and not having an icecream maker as previous readers will know,  I whisked the partly frozen mixture after it had been in the freezer for a couple of hours to break up the ice crystals then refroze it till solid.  If you were energetic you could do this twice so it became really smooth!
love my penguin scoop!
So delicious!



  2. It's great that you don't need an ice cream maker to make this! I never seem to have room in my freezer for mine! :P

    1. i have made all sorts of sorbets and ice cream without an icecream maker lorraine! it just takes a bit of effort and time to remember to take it out of the freezer once or twice and whizz it up before freezing for the final time.:)

  3. Mmmm, delicous sorbet! We've had cool winds here in North Queensland but once it warms up this is something I will try!
