Apple Sorbet

This fresh sorbet is all one really needs after a Yomtov meal!


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 20 min




  • 2 Granny Smith apples (peeled, cored and quartered)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 litre apple juice
  • drop of green food colouring


Boil the apples in a saucepan with the water and icing sugar. Once the apples are soft, remove the pan from the heat and blend with a hand blender or in a food processor. Add the apple juice and mix well. If you want it to look a little greener, then add a drop of green food colouring and mix very well.

Pour the mixture through a strainer into a rectangular container and freeze for 5 – 6 hours until it frozen around the edges and not completely through.

Remove from the freezer and rake the sorbet with a fork, mixing it up well. Alternatively scoop it out and blend in a food processor until smooth. Raking it makes it more like a granita, whereas blending8 it while almost frozen makes it more velvety and smooth. Refreeze. You can blend it twice more for an even ‘creamier’ texture.

Remove from the freezer about 10 minutes before serving to soften it a little.

    sound delicious. what could you serve this with for a desert?

    • what about a lovely fresh fruit salad? Or roasted fresh figs. After a heavy Yomtov dinner a light sorbet is delicious. You can make two other flavours and serve a trio of sorbets.
