Light and full of fresh flavours, sorbets are the sweetest way to cool down this summer. Not to mention, they often call for just a handful of ingredients, making them a delicious, budget-friendly treat!

Test Kitchen Tip:

These recipes were tested using an ice cream machine. If you don’t have one at home — fear not! Instead of churning these sorbets in an ice cream machine, once you make the fruit purée, transfer it into a large lunchbox or sealable container and freeze for 1½ hours. Stir with a whisk or fork to break up any ice crystals that have formed and return to the freezer. Keep whisking to continue breaking up the ice crystals every 30 minutes until the mixture is firm but
still scoop-able.
