Lemon & Honey Sorbet is hard to describe but yet incredibly refreshing.
Summer is coming and this slightly tart, satisfying frozen treat is going to cool you off fast. But be careful and don’t eat it too quickly or you will get brain freeze! I did and it hurts!
I keep a big container of it in my freezer and dip all day long. It’s incredibly satisfying and thirst-quenching and since it’s fat-free why not indulge.
It takes a while to completely freeze the lemon and honey sorbet so plan ahead if you want to serve it for a special occasion. I might even suggest a double batch because every time you stir it during the freezing process…you are going to want to take a couple of bites.
Here Are A Few Facts About Lemons:
- Lemons like all fruits and vegetables are good for you
- Lemons are supposedly helpful in reducing migraine headaches.
- Lemons contain vitamin C, flavonoids, magnesium, and more.
- Vitamin C intake is thought to reduce stroke risk.
- Lemons have more potassium than apples and grapes, and potassium is beneficial to our hearts.
As far as sweeteners go, I haven’t tried pure maple syrup or rice syrup in this recipe, but I assume it would be fine. I often substitute with those two plant-based ingredients in many other recipes. I would love to know your results if you try any.
As you can see there is no fat in this recipe. Weight watcher points for the entire container is 25 points.
Serve some up and enjoy this refreshing treat!
