Homemade Apricot Sorbet | Recipe

A fresh, homemade apricot sorbet, great for Australian Summers. This dairy-free sorbet is made using Sulphur-free, South Australian Apricots. The sorbet can be served alone or alongside fresh fruit or baked goods. Definitely one to keep in the freezer for unexpected occasions. 

Serves 6


20 min prep-time

What you will need to make homemade apricot sorbet

600 grams fresh ripe apricots, halved and pitted
¼ cup thinly sliced dried apricots from Totally Fruity
½ cup caster sugar
½ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
finely grated zest 1 lemon
1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest

Putting it all together

Place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.

Simmer gently for 10-15 minutes or until the fruit is very soft and has totally collapsed. Cool.

Tip into a shallow freezer-proof container. Cover and freeze until the mixture is just about frozen. Transfer to a food processor and process until smooth. Return the sorbet to the container, cover and freeze again.

Process once more and refreeze for the best result.
