Creamy & Easy Fruit Sorbets

Fruit Sorbets

Beat the heat with these colorful sorbets! These Fruit Sorbets are cool, creamy and surprisingly easy to make, and no ice cream maker is needed. This recipe is very similar to a smoothie, less complex and just as healthy. The main difference is that frozen fruits, lime juice and some sweetener is added to achieve that sweet-tart sorbet flavor.

After learning about this easy method, my 3 favourite flavors to make are Strawberry Banana, Pineapple Banana and Mango Banana. You must be wondering why so many bananas? Creamy fruits give the sorbet a creamy texture and prevents it from turning icy. Bananas are by far the best for achieving that creamy sorbet texture. The sweetener has been much reduced from the original recipe, so do adjust according to your preference.

Now you can get creative and whip up your own sorbet flavor creations. You could try lychee mango, coconut banana, passion fruit banana, banana papaya, banana lime, pear banana and more. And best of all – these fruit sorbets are fat free!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12 scoops
Ingredients
Strawberry Banana
  • 1½ cups Frozen Strawberries
  • 1½ Fresh Bananas
  • ¼ cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
Pineapple Banana
  • 1½ cups Frozen Pineapple
  • 2 Fresh Bananas
  • ¼ cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Honey (or more)
Mango Banana
  • 1½ cups Frozen Mango
  • 1 Fresh Bananas
  • ⅓ cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
Instructions
  1. Thaw the frozen fruit for 5 minutes so that it blends easily.
  2. Add all ingredients to a high speed/high quality blender like a Vitamix. Blend until smooth - do not over blend. You do not want to "melt" the mixture. Keep it as thick and frosty as possible.
  3. Pour into freezer-friendly container, a chilled metal container works best.
  4. Chill until firm. Scoop and serve!

    • thanks ping! I’ve tried making the one ingredient ice cream, but i don’t quite like the texture, it’s too much banana flavour for my liking lol. I’ve tried using frozen bananas to make the sorbets, but I still prefer the fresh banana texture for this sorbet.

  9. Hi Shannon, sorbets are my favourite, followed by gelato. So these wont freeze up until rock hard, like popsicles? Can’t wait to make :). My son would absolutely love it.

    • Hi Esther, these sorbets are creamy because of the banana, and quite surprisingly there’s hardly any banana taste in them. usually popsicles are made with juice right? i think that’s why it’s icy & rock hard. you can also make these sorbets into popsicles, your son would love it

  10. Hi Shannon, I just wanted to ask if these sorbets melt quite quickly. I tried making ice cream once without ice cream maker, they’re yummy but melt rather quickly. Thanks! I can’t wait to experiment with different fruits too.

    • Hi Yen, I haven’t tried making ice cream with ice cream maker, so I’m not sure how quickly they melt. These sorbets did melt slightly faster than store bought ice cream.. but I’m ok with that.
