Why I Love This Recipe

A little sweet, a little tart -- this tropical sorbet is better for you than ice cream and tastier than a snow cone. THIS IS A RECIPE FROM THE REALAGE WEBSITE

Ingredients You'll Need

8 cups peeled, seeded, and diced ripe papaya (about 1 very large or 8 small)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup "lite" coconut milk, divided
2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
1 teaspoon lime zest, divided
2 pinches of salt


Line a large baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Arrange diced papaya in a single layer and freeze overnight.

Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely dissolved and syrupy, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour the syrup into a glass measuring cup and let cool for 15 minutes.

Remove the papaya from the freezer to defrost while the syrup is cooling.

Transfer half the frozen papaya to a food processor. Add half the syrup, 2 tablespoons coconut milk, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon lime zest, and a pinch of salt. Pulse two or three times, then process until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides and stir as necessary.

Transfer the sorbet to a large serving bowl. Repeat with the remaining ingredients; add to the serving bowl.

Serve immediately or freeze until ready to use.
