I absolutely love this frozen treat in the summer! I live in Charleston where it’s HOT and HUMID during the summer months, so staying cool is top of the list all season long. Once I realized just how easy it was to make your own homemade sorbets, I was hooked. Peach is my favorite so far, but stay tuned, I’m trying lots of flavors!

Picking the Perfect Peaches for Sorbet

The key to the best peach sorbet lies is using high-quality peaches. Opt for ripe, juicy peaches that yield slightly to pressure and smell – well – like peaches!

Overripe peaches, while too soft for most uses, are perfect for sorbet as they are packed with natural sugars and flavor. If fresh peaches are not in season, you can use frozen peaches!

How to Make Peach Sorbet

Be sure to slice up your peaches and freeze them (I just drop mine in a plastic baggie) before making this sorbet.

Pulse your granulated sugar in a blender or food processor to help make it more fine in texture. Set the sugar aside.

Blend up your frozen peaches with a little water and lime juice. The measurements are in the recipe card at the end of the post, but adjust as necessary. A little tweaking of the water and lime juice won’t negatively affect your sorbet, so no worries! As long as you can blend it until smooth, you’re good to go! Don’t forget to add that cup of sugar back in too.

Pour your peach sorbet puree into a 1 lb loaf pan. I use a sheet of wax paper pressed gently on top to “seal” the sorbet. Set it in your freezer for at least 6 hours but ideally overnight so it’s fully frozen.

Serving Peach Sorbet

When ready to serve, set it out a few minutes to soften slightly then scoop it up!

Serve it in a bowl for a simple, elegant dessert, or get creative with presentation. It pairs beautifully with fresh berries, a drizzle of honey, or a sprig of mint for extra garnish. It’s also delicious served on a slice of pound cake!
