This banana sorbet recipe is just too amazing not to share. You need just 2 ingredients to make cantaloupe sorbet, but don’t let the short ingredient list fool you. It tastes so fancy and good and it’s why I can’t wait to show you how to make sorbet! It just might be your new favorite cold treat.
Plus, what could be better than making your own homemade sorbet where you know exactly what is in it? The ice cream shop has nothing on you!
I’ve been craving everything cold and refreshing lately. Maybe it’s the warmer weather, or perhaps it’s the fresh fruit that is in season that makes me want this sugar-free sorbet.
Okay, so while one ingredient banana ice cream is in no way something new on the blog-o-sphere, adding cantaloupe to the mix kicks it up a notch. It’s sweet enough on its own to not need any sweetener, but a drizzle of raw honey over the top would be spectacular.
What Is Sorbet?
Sorbet is an ice-cold treat that is typically made with fruit and water. It doesn’t have milk or other ingredients that traditionally ice cream recipes have.
My paleo version of this homemade sorbet is free of added sugars unlike what you would buy at a sorbet shop. It’s much healthier and super easy to make yourself. Plus, it’s only 53 calories!
How To Make Sorbet
This is the best sorbet recipe because it takes almost ZERO effort to make, which you will see…
- Blend fruit together. Add frozen bananas and frozen cantaloupe to the blender and blend them until they are the texture of ice cream.
Can you believe that is all you need to do? You can either eat it right away or toss it in the freezer, so it hardens more.
TIP: The key is using frozen fruit because it blends nicely and you can eat it right away if you want.
Banana Sorbet Variations
This is a basic sorbet recipe, but did you know you could add all kinds of other fruits to it. Add any of your favorites for some additional flavor. Here are some of the ones I love to add in on occasion:
- Mango – It’s so tropical and fun, you’ll love it.
- Watermelon – Ice cold watermelon is hard to beat.
- Pineapple – That delicious pineapple flavor is so yummy when it’s in this homemade sorbet. It pairs so well with the banana.
- Berries – Pick any of your favorites like strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries. Yum! They’ll add sweetness and bright colors.
- Peaches – I don’t think there is any juicer than a fresh, ripe peach. Freeze it and add it to this cantaloupe sorbet for a tasty twist.
Is Sorbet Gluten-Free?
Yes, sorbet is gluten-free. All the recipes I put on this site are gluten-free, and this sorbet dessert is the same way.
Actually, you will find that sorbet is almost ALWAYS gluten-free because it’s not really necessary to add any ingredients that contain gluten. Of course, you’ll always want to check the ingredient list if you’re buying it at the store to make sure.
Does Sorbet Have Dairy?
No, there is no dairy in this sugar-free sorbet, that’s also dairy-free.
It would be very rare to find a recipe for sorbet that does have dairy in it because that means it’s ice cream! Again, always check if you’re buying it at the store or ordering it at the ice cream shop.
Sorbet vs. Sherbet
If you have been wondering what the difference between sorbet and sherbet is, you are in luck! The primary difference between the two is dairy. When sherbet is made, it often has milk or cream. The rest of the ingredients are mostly the same, though.
I know many people have wondered and often use the terms interchangeably, so now you know!
How Do You Store Banana Sorbet?
Freeze the banana sorbet in an airtight storage container. It will last about 2-4 months and is great to enjoy at the end of the day.
To serve, set on the counter a couple of minutes, so it softens enough to eat.
