perfect fourth of july dessert - blueberry sorbetpost by Melissa

We’ve found the perfect recipe for this Fourth of July – homemade blueberry sorbet! The color is so vibrant and the flavor is amazing. It’s tart, sweet and tastes just like summer. Make this a day or two ahead of your Fourth of July festivities and then pull it out of the freezer for an aprés parade treat!

adapted from Simply Recipes


5 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed, stems removed

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup honey

2 teaspoons lemon zest

2 T lemon juice

pinch of salt

1. Place blueberries, sugar, honey, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt in a large bowl. Stir to coat berries with sugar, then mash with a potato masher.

2. Transfer blueberry mixture to blender and blend on high for two minutes until smooth.

3. Use a fine mesh sieve over a large bowl and working in batches, press mixture through sieve using a rubber spatula.

4. Chill the mixture for an hour in the fridge, then follow the directions of your ice cream maker. We like to then freeze the sorbet in the freezer for 2 hours (or overnight) to harden it.

    Yum! I’ve always been a blueberry icecream kind of person yet since trying blueberry sorbet at a restaurant for dinner once have become addicted to this frozen treat! Because a lacking an icecream machine at home I’ve never prepared it myself. Your recipe left me tempted though and now I can’t wait to borrow one from a friend to try the sorbet out myself. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
