Papaya-Lime Summer Sorbet
  • Servings: 8
  • 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
  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Arrange diced papaya in a single layer and freeze overnight.
  2. 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.
  3. Remove the papaya from the freezer to defrost while the syrup is cooling.
  4. 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.
  5. Transfer the sorbet to a large serving bowl. Repeat with the remaining ingredients; add to the serving bowl.
  6. Serve immediately or freeze until ready to use.
A little sweet, a little tart -- this tropical sorbet is better for you than ice cream and tastier than a snow cone.
