Limonana Sorbet

Limonana is a frosty summer beverage that’s a classic favorite in Israel. It’s a sweet, refreshing slushy drink made with lemon and mint. Here, I’ve taken it to the next level and made it into a sorbet. I used my new mint plant, so the herbs would be very fresh, and we couldn’t get enough of it!

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare the Limonana Sorbet

  1. In a small pot, heat sugar and 2/3 cup water until sugar is dissolved. Stir, if necessary, to help sugar melt.

  2. Cool. Pour liquid into blender cup, or into food processor fitted with the knife attachment. Add rest of ingredients and blend until slushy. Pour into a large container and freeze overnight.

  3. Cut frozen mixture into chunks and process in small amounts until entire mixture is blended again. (This gives it the sorbet texture.) Freeze until serving.

  4. Remove from freezer a few minutes before serving just to soften slightly. Serve small scoops in lemon halves, if desired. Top with a mint leaf.

Note:

Lemons that are room temperature or warmed in the microwave yield more juice.

Tip:

This can be served in tiny cups as an elegant palate cleanser.

    Extra cup of water?

    The recipe calls for 1 and 2/3 cups of water, and it says to use 2/3 cup to melt the sugar, but it's not clear what to do with the other 1 cup of water. Is it supposed to be added with the rest of the ingredients, or added afterwards when reblending the sorbet?

    Hi, in step 2 where it says 'add the rest of the ingredients' I would add the additional 1 cup of water then as well.

    Perfect balance of sweet/tart. I blended it twice and the end product was creamy and very delicious!
