“A blend of lemon, orange and lime juices are brightened by a confetti of zests that add a special a zing. Time does not include chilling or mixing in your ice cream maker.”
1 pint

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine sugar and water in a small pot, bring to a boil reduce and simmer just until sugar is dissolved, let cool.
  2. Stir together all the juices, zests and vanilla, add in ½ cup of sugar syrup, taste and add more until desired sweetness is reached; with a ½ cup of syrup, this is a tart and refreshing sorbetto which makes a perfect palate cleanser. Add more syrup for a sweeter flavor, especially if serving children.
  3. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacture’s instructions.
  4. Note:
  5. Every ice cream maker is different; follow the general directions for yours. My gelato machine allows me to only have to slightly cool the syrup, you may have to chill syrup & juice blend before mixing.
  6. You may serve the sorbetto right away, or pack in a freezer container and allow to ripen.
  7. With ½ cup syrup this makes a scant pint.
