  • Prep Time



  • Total Time



  • Servings




  • 1 tablespoon Wonderful Seedless Lemon zest
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup Wonderful Seedless Lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 Wonderful Seedless Lemons, cut in half and hollowed for serving  
  • 6 Wonderful Seedless Lemon slices, cut into half-moons and twisted for garnish
  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish


  1. Freeze the bowl of an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the lemon zest, water, lemon juice, sugar, and honey. Bring to a simmer until the sugar has fully dissolved, about 5 minutes. Strain the mixture into a bowl. Set over a nice bath to cool or let cool to room temperature.
  3. Once cooled, cover and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  4. When chilled, place in the ice-cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions. When churned, transfer sorbet to an ice-cream carton or loaf pan and freeze for another 3 to 4 hours.
  5. To serve, cut lemons in half using a paring knife. With a tablespoon, carefully remove the pith of the lemon and reserve juice for another use. Cut the pointed tip off each lemon half to make a flat surface so the lemon half can stand upright.
  6. Scoop the sorbet into the lemon halves. Garnish with a lemon twist and mint leaves. Serve immediately or store in freezer.
