Fresh Peach Sorbet is the perfect summertime treat. It's light, refreshing and sweet.
Peach season is in full swing here in Michigan. I can't get enough peaches. I love stopping at the cutest little farm stand just down the road. They have the best peaches.
If you've never had a fresh picked peach from a local farm, you are in for a real treat. Store bought peaches just don't compare to the fresh, ripe juicy peaches. The kind of peach that you have to eat over the sink because it is just so juicy. It's the only kind of peach to eat!
I love making both sweet and savory peach recipes. Sorbets are one of my favorite treats to make during the warmer months.
This Fresh Peach Sorbet is really simple to make. First step is to peel all the peaches and slice them. This will take a few minutes but it's the only real work this recipes requires.
After the peaches have been peeled and sliced, they go into a high speed blender. Fresh lemon juice, cane sugar, coconut milk, and a pinch of salt are added next and then blended until smooth.
You might be thinking that is a lot of sugar. When you are making a sorbet, it needs the cane sugar to achieve the right texture.
The peach and coconut mixture needs to chill before adding it to the ice cream maker. After it has chilled, the ice cream maker does all the work! I like to add a touch of vodka to help the sorbet from getting icy.
After the sorbet is done churning, it needs to freeze for about 4 hours before serving.
This Fresh Peach Sorbet is the perfect way to cool down on a hot day. The fresh peaches make a delicious sorbet.
