Easy Peach Sorbet Recipe: This Refreshing Peach & Basil Sorbet Is Worth Buying Yourself an Ice Cream Maker

Still don't have an ice cream maker? This refreshing peach and basil sorbet recipe may be the excuse you've been looking for. Trust me, it's worth the splurge.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes plus freezing time
Servings: 4 to 6


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup packed, chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 6 large ripe peaches
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • dash of salt

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine first three ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil until sugar dissolves. Let stand 15 minutes. Pour through a fine strainer. Discard solids. Cool.
  2. Cut a nickel-sized X on top of peaches. Submerge them in boiling water for 1 minute. With slotted spoon quickly dunk each peach in a bowl of ice water. Cool. Peel starting from the X at the top. Remove pits and dice. Place peaches and juice in a blender; process until smooth. Add salt and basil mixture. Chill 1 hour.
  3. Pour the mixture into the freezer can of an ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Spoon sorbet into a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze until firm.
