Banana Citrus Sorbet Recipe

A friend who loved to entertain gave me the recipe for this lovely sorbet. Serving it as a refreshing special course adds a bit of elegance to my favorite meal. If you don't have an ice cream freezer, put the mixture into ice cube trays and stir occasionally while freezing. Mix in a blender when ready to serve.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Process: 20 min./batch + freezing YIELD:10 servings


  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 3 medium ripe bananas, cut into chunks
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1-1/2 cups orange juice


  • 1. Place lemon juice and bananas in blender; cover and process until smooth. Add sugar; cover and process until blended. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in water and orange juice.
  • 2. Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full; freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. (Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze.) Transfer to a freezer container, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze 2-4 hours before serving. Repeat with remaining sorbet mixture. May be frozen up to 1 month. Yield: 2-1/2 quarts.
