Grapefruit and blueberry sorbet

    6 hours 5 min

    A relatively tart, yet sweet and refreshing sorbet. Serve as a dessert or as a palate cleanser, in between courses. It's so simple to make and there's no need to use an ice cream maker.

    Serves: 10 

    • 725ml fresh pink grapefruit juice
    • 435g fresh or frozen blueberries
    • 300g caster sugar or to taste
    • 125ml vodka

    Prep:5min  ›  Extra time:6hr freezing  ›  Ready in:6hr5min 

    1. Pour the grapefruit juice, blueberries, sugar and vodka into a liquidiser and blend until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.
    2. Pour the mixture into a container and freeze until solid, 3 to 4 hours. Thoroughly stir the sorbet to break up the ice crystals to a slushy consistency and return to freezer until firm, about 3 hours. Store in the freezer in a covered container.


    About 5 grapefruits are needed to yield 725ml juice.

    Instead of using grapefruit juice, I used a 24 ounce jar of grapefruit segments and juice and I also subbed the blueberries for a mix of raspberries, marionberries, and blueberries. I blended everything and put it into my icecream maker for 20 minutes and it turned out WONDERFUL!! Its already half gone after less than 24 hours  -  25 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was given a bottle of grapefruit juice and didn't like it. But I am not one to make waste. I made this in the blender with frozen blueberries and no vodka. I poured it into an ice cream maker and has a wonderful sorbet 20 minutes later.  -  08 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was great, It's a perfect ending to a meal, or just as a snack on a hot day.  -  10 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
