Homemade Peach Sorbet

***Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links***

Texas summers always leave me craving something cold and sweet! I don’t know if it’s the hotter-than-hell temperatures or the fact that I just love desserts, either way, this time of year if it’s not a frozen dessert, I don’t want it. We’ve been experiencing a heat wave in Texas the last few weeks and things are hot, even by our standards. To put things in perspective, it’s been so hot recently that the “cold front” we had last week was “only” 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius). Trust me when I say, we were relieved to have the break!

Last summer I purchased a Nutri Ninja Blender with money I’d won in a fitness competition at work. At the time I thought it would only be used for smoothies, but I had no idea how awesome this thing was! I may have to do a post sometime in the future with all the things you can make with this blender! For now, we’ll start with fresh homemade sorbet. 

Homemade sorbet done right tastes exactly like the store bought stuff without all of the additives. What I love most are the simple ingredients. In most cases all you need is a fruit, a sweetener, and water. It’s a super easy to make and a refreshing way to sweeten your day without all the added calories and high sugar content that ice creams and other frozen desserts have. Plus, there is just something so rewarding about making your own desserts. 

In this recipe, I added a little bit of organic honey to round out the flavor, but if you let the peaches ripen a few extra days, you can avoid the added sweetner all together. Although, at only 53 calories per serving you might as well enjoy it all!

This recipe is seriously delicious! Sorbet has quickly become one of my favorite desserts. It’s low calorie and incredibly versatile as well. You can create your own unique flavors by using fresh fruits like kiwi, strawberries, or bananas and adding extras like cocao nibs or even chunks fresh fruits for a nice texture change. Try using coconut water instead of plain water or try your favorite yogurt for added protein. The possibilities are endless!

I challenge you to create your own delicious recipe and share it in the comments below. I hope you’re staying cool wherever you are in the world!

    1. Oh blood orange? That sounds delightful. Maybe I can give that one a try next time.

    1. oh, I wonder if we can get those here in Texas? I’ll have to see!

  3. I think this is above my skill level, bur daaaayyyuuuuuum this looks fresh and tasty! You are a sorbet queen! Envious of your Texas summer when you have this peachy friend to hang out with!

    1. LOL!!! I would rate this one as skill level: Beginner. If you can make a margarita, you can tackle this one 😉

  4. I love sorbets and anything really that helps cool you down on terribly hot days. I have never tried making a sorbet at home before though and this recipe really does seem quite easy to follow – plus the finished result certainly looks tasty. Love that it’s low calorie as well.

  5. Wow! This looks so good <3 My mouth is legit watering haha

  6. Oh my god! That looks so good – what a great recipe yum!

    1. oh coconut sorbet sounds delicious too. I bet a coconut/peach sorbet might taste good as well. You have just given me a great idea!

  8. My mother-in-law has been looking for a peach ice cream, it was something she had when she was a little girl. I’m going to try to make this for her and see if she likes it!

  9. Oh my goodness, I absolutely love peaches and this dessert can be enjoyed without the guilty feeling of traditional ice cream. Thank you, now I can enjoy sorbet with my kiddos.

  10. The peach sounds great, I have a Vitamix and do this with pineapple or avocado/chocolate, YUM!

    1. I hear the Vitamix is also a fantastic blender. When I was shopping for my Nutri Ninja I was also looking at a vitamix but it was slightly out of my price range.

  11. I love sorbet but never make one myself. It doenst look that hard to complete and the ingredient are just simple. Great for summer and my family would love it no doubt about it.
