  • 2 1/4 cups lime juice, refrigerated
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 Tbls lime zest


Serves: up to 7, Prep: 15 mins, Cool: 20-30 mins, Chill: up to 2 hrs

1. Place the white sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, and leave the mix on the stove top for 3-5 minutes without stirring until the sugar has dissolved (this is called simple syrup, you can make batches of it in advance for sorbets and keep it refrigerated until you need it).
2. Use an ice-bath to get the simple syrup really cold and then pour in the lime juice and zest and combine by stirring.
3. Pour this mix into an ice-cream maker and prepare as per their instructions.

If your mix is too soft place it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 2hrs, stirring every half an hour to make sure it doesn’t form icicles or separate out.
