Lemon Mint Sorbet

Project Description

Lemon Mint Sorbet

What do people want on a hot summer day? Right, ice cream! I just bought a new toy – Ice Cream, Sorbet and Frozen Yogurt making device – and came with my own version of refreshing Lemon Mint Sorbet. Of course, I made it Low Glycemic 🙂 If you have an ice cream maker, follow the instructions for preparing this dessert. If you don’t, see the TIP at the bottom of this page.

Lemon mint sorbet is refreshing Healthy dessert. It is yummy, fancy and has Low Glycemic Index. Low GI recipes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cup water
  • 1.5 cup pure fructose
  • 4 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 1 cup lemon flavored seltzer water, no sugar added
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice from ½ lemon
  • 1 inch of Ginger root chopped  

Keep aside 2 tbsp of lemon zest and 2-3 tbsp of chopped mint to add to a sorbet at the very end.

Directions:

  • Combine first two ingredients with 2 tbsp of the lemon zest in a saucepan, and cook until fructose is fully dissolved.
  • Remove, and let cool for 30-40 minutes.
  • Add other ingredients, keeping aside the rest of the lemon zest and 1-2 tbsp of chopped mint.
  • Mix all together and refrigerate for several hours, or overnight.
  • Filter the chilled mixture through a fine mesh strainer.
  • Turn on your ice cream maker, and pour the mixture into a previously frozen freezer bowl.
  • Let mix for 15-20 minutes, and then add the rest of the lemon zest and mint, and mix for 3-5 more minutes.

The texture of a sorbet should be similar to a texture of mashed potatoes (which following the low glycemic lifestyle we don’t eat 😉

  • Transfer the sorbet to an airtight container, and freeze for several hours or overnight.
  • Garnish with mint leaves and berries of your choice before serving.

TIP: If you do not have an ice cream maker, you can transfer mixture to a pyrex baking pan. Cover it tight, and freeze until firm (about 2 to 3 hours). Stir it with a fork every half hour.

Weight Loss Help

  • Fructose has very low Glycemic Index (20) versus high Glycemic Index of sugar (100)
  • Fructose is a natural product and tastes as sugar, even better
  • Please pay choose close attention to the ingredients of seltzer water. It should be sugar and high fructose syrup free.
  • I used 100% lemon juice from concentrate. You can definitely choose using freshly squeezed lemon juice; just consider having enough lemons for getting 2 cups of juice.
  • When garnish, avoid using cookies, chocolate chips or any syrup.
