To make this refreshing sorbet, you will need the following key ingredients:

Dry Lavender

Dry lavender has a unique herbal flavor that’s fantastic and fragrant.

Frozen Organic Blueberries

Organic blueberries have a flavor that’s more intense than their conventional counterparts.

Lemon zest has a sharper flavor than juice. It’s also less sweet and bitter with floral notes.

Raw Cane Sugar

Raw cane sugar is a less processed form of sugar. That provides a richer flavor because it retains some molasses elements, similar to brown sugar.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about homemade sorbet recipes:

How do I stop my sorbet from crystallizing?

You can keep your sorbet from crystallizing by using simple syrup instead of only sugar, honey, or agave. By making a simple syrup, you liquefy the sugar, and this process keeps sugar from crystallizing as it freezes. 

Why do sorbets not freeze completely?

Sorbets never freeze completely because it contains majority fruit with no dairy. Adding a liquid sweetener like simple syrup or corn syrup keeps the ice crystals from freezing completely. 

Plus, you don’t want your sorbet to freeze completely because it should be light and creamy. Not soft and creamy like ice cream.  

Why is my sorbet hard?

The reason your sorbet is freezing hard is a lack of sugar. Adding a liquid sweetener like honey, simple syrup, or corn syrup will lower the freezing point and allow the sorbet to be firm but not rock hard. The sugar will let the sorbet be light.

Notes

For an ice cream machine follow these 3 easy steps. 1. Follow the recipe until step 2. Once mixture is smooth. Cover and place the mix in the fridge for 2 hours. 2. Pour the blueberry lemon lavender sorbet mixture into the ice cream machine and churn for 15-20 minutes. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on your ice cream machine. 3. Enjoy immediately.
You can skip adding the sorbet to the freezer and enjoy immediately.
After sorbet remains in the freezer it will harden. Set out for 5-10 minutes to soften. I like to take a fork and shave it to make a blueberry granita.
You can add any leftover lavender syrup to cocktails, teas, and lemonades.
