Ingredients for Fresh Melon Fruit Sorbet
- Honeydew Melon
- Lemon Juice
- Coconut Water
Can I make this in advance?
A homemade sorbet can definitely be made in advance, however, you may find that it does not store well for very long. Due to the fact that melon tends to have a thinner and more watery texture after processing, it will definitely set up differently than ice cream. That means it is more susceptible to having freezer burn.
This recipe is best served the same day it is made. You can store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one week with similar results. To make serving guests easier, you may want to pre-scoop portions into dessert dishes and freeze until time for dessert.
Can I use other fruits for this recipe?
While the honeydew is perfect in this recipe combination, you can definitely apply the same principle to make other fruit sorbet recipes. Making combination fruit blends is another excellent idea for variety and may help you use up fruit that is ripe and nearing the best use by date. Popular fruit combinations are listed below.
- Pineapple and mango
- Strawberry, blueberry, raspberry
- Watermelon and lime
- Strawberry and kiwi
- Passionfruit and mango
- Papaya and coconut
How to Make Honeydew Sorbet
Following the printable recipe below, you will peel and dice the honeydew melon. This will be combined with other ingredients as listed and processed together prior to being frozen. Follow the listed steps for making sure the sorbet has the correct texture in freezing.
To make this appear like an upscale gourmet dessert, use an ice cream scoop to add this to a glass ice cream glass or specialty dessert serving dish. Fresh sprigs of mint are a wonderful addition to this as a garnish. You can even fold in chunks of fresh honeydew if you prefer to add a bit more texture to the recipe.
